MAINE: Judge Orders NOM To Comply With Financial Disclosure Laws

It’s too late to matter, but a judge in Maine has at last ruled that NOM must reveal where they got the money to fund their successful campaign to overturn same-sex marriage.

U.S. Magistrate Judge John Rich III said in a document dated Sunday that the National Organization for Marriage, which contributed $1.9 million to the campaign to repeal Maine’s gay marriage law, should turn over fundraising documents dating back to Jan. 1, 2009, to the Maine Commission on Governmental Ethics and Election Practices. The ethics commission voted last October to examine the group’s contributions after it was accused of not reporting the names of many donors.

NOM has consistently flouted campaign finance disclosure laws. There’s no reason to assume that they’ll comply with this latest order.
