Gee, I wonder why NOM is suddenly disavowing an official relationship with Carrie Prejean? Could it be because she has turned out to yet another PR disaster?
Maggie Gallagher, president of the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) released this statement today clarifying the role of Carrie Prejean at a press conference held Thursday in Washington, DC: “A number of media sources have described Carrie Prejean as a spokesperson for the National Organization for Marriage. As we made clear at our press conference yesterday: Carrie appeared with NOM as a private citizen; she does not work for the National Organization for Marriage. She is a spokesperson for her own views, as anyone watching her can tell. We are grateful to Carrie Prejean for her willingness to stand up for marriage. We would love to work with Carrie in the future if she chooses, and we wish her well in all her future endeavors whatever she chooses. We’re proud of her. Americans are proud of her. She is a remarkable young woman. Thank you, Carrie. “
Let’s see….NOM put her in their $1.5M ad which was immediately pulled for copyright infringement. Then they trotted her out at yesterday’s press conference (where half of the reporters wanted to ask about her fake titties). But she doesn’t really work for them. Yeah.
UPDATE: Prejean calls into the Greta Van Susteren show to say that doesn’t know anything about anything.
