Spinning like a Hollywood publicist, Protect Marriage Maine claims our side is swimming in celeb donors

by Jeremy Hooper

I'm so tired of this ridiculous populism:

Has there been even one "celebrity donor" in Maine? NO! But why should a little thing like a fact deter a group like Protect Marriage Maine? Even though their donor rolls show a host of churches and special interest groups heavily outweighing cash from everyday Mainers, they want our movement to sound like it is bought and paid for by deep-pocketed Hollywood, so that they can make our movement sound inauthentic and elitist.

These attempts to skew the debate are deeply offensive to good and decent Mainers (on both sides of this issue, I would add).

*MAINERS UNITED FOR MARRIAGE*
