NOM buys 'Hero of G Street' domain

by Jeremy Hooper

Before I show you what I'm about to show you, let me stress that I do think the man, Leo Johnson, who thwarted whatever might have been planned at the FRC building (located on D.C's G Street) is, in fact, a hero. We don't know if he saved lives, but we know there was a gun. And an intent to use. Leo stopped that. Heroically, by all accounts.

But I can't help but wonder why the National Organization For Marriage, an organization that has nothing to do with Family Research Council, would purchase this domain name if *not* to try to exploit that heroism in a political way:

I hope I'm wrong. I hope there is no other request than for folks to applaud Mr. Johnson (and not in a way that builds a list for NOM).

That no-$tring$-attached support would be a first for NOM.
