NOM’s arch-nemesis Fred Karger, who ran for the GOP presidential nomination last year, appeared at NOM’s DC headquarters this week to demand their 2011 tax filings, which by law must be produced to any member of the public. Via press release:
“They tried their best to avoid me, were rude and evasive, but what else is new?” said Karger on his latest attempt to gather NOM’s tax returns. One thing is crystal clear; NOM president Brian Brown and former president Maggie Gallagher are definitely getting rich off the NOM donors – very rich. Maybe they don’t want us to know that NOM President Brian Brown made over $500,000 dollars in 2011. He was paid $230,000 by NOM’s political operation where he claimed to work a minimum of 40 hours per week, and another whopping $230,000 from NOM’s Educational Fund where he claimed to work another 40 hours per week. Add $47,000 in benefits and you have the “Half Million Dollar Man.”
Karger notes that NOM staffers literally fled when he appeared, running into elevators and behind locked doors. View their full 2011 tax filing here.
