Various marriage campaigns' trusted firm: We only work with Republicans

by Jeremy Hooper

On Protect Marriage Maine's latest filing, one will notice a pair of expenditures to Brooklyn, Iowa's Campaign HQ:

In fact, one will notice Campaign HQ on many similar filings. NOM loves this firm. Minnesota For Marriage is using them as well:

So considering this firm's frequent booking, I found this note in the company's job application quite interesting:

Only works for Republicans? Gee, that's weird—these marriage campaigns are always telling us they span all partisan lines. I bet there are quite a few Mainers, Minnesotans, and anyone else who'd be curious to know why these teams turn to such a GOP-centered outlet.

I mean, I know the answer: it's because all of these campaigns are always extremely partisan and used to elect conservatives, with Democrats and independents who support these causes lending credence to that side of the aisle rather they know it or not. The average voter should know it too.

Oh yeah. That's GOP. And FRC too?!
