In which ActRight and Preserve Marriage Washington feign disinterested party status

by Jeremy Hooper

The overtly partisan ActRight enterprise is Brian Brown's operation. Brian Brown is also, of course, the head of the National Organization for Marriage.

The National Organization For Marriage is a coalition partner in the so-called Preserve Marriage Washington effort. NOM's own Chris Plante is one of that campaign's top guys.

Preserve Marriage Washington pays Brian Brown's ActRight. Pays ActRight quite a bit, in fact:

PMW also uses the ActRight system as its fundraising platform (even if they don't disclose that fact on the site).

Bottom line: There is very little sunlight between the Preserve Marriage Washington campaign and ActRight/NOM. Very little.

So I can't help but laugh when I see this, a supposedly objective advisory memo to the campaign from an ActRight Legal personality:

Well if your own close, compensated friend says it's kosher then it must be. It's that long-standing legal standard known as the "My mom think I'm cool" dictum.
