NOM Threatens NY GOP Senators

NOM has pledged $500,000 to the defeat of any GOP state senators in New York who support a marriage equality bill.

Gay marriage is not high on the list of any voters’ priorities, but again and again we’ve seen politicians respond to political money thrown around by Tim Gill and his friends and ignore the wishes of their own constituents,” said Brian Brown, executive director of the anti-same-sex-marriage organization, who said the group is forming a subsidiary, NOM PAC New York, for the purpose. “The first half million dollars will be used in GOP primaries,” noted Brown, “but we are also looking to aid Democratic candidates who want to buck the establishment on the marriage issue, and to help in general election contests.”

The Empire State Pride Agenda said NOM is making “empty threats.”
