NOM, You can't Hide the Truth! Show Us Your Donors!


For awhile now, NOM has been fighting to hide their donors list. They have been to court, hiding records and flat out lying about how they are protected by law to keep them secret.

Well, a federal judge in Maine said "enough" and now, NOM is scared into silence.
A federal judge has upheld Maine's campaign finance disclosure law as constitutional in a lawsuit brought by an organization that opposes gay marriages. The National Organization for Marriage sued after the state ethics commission found that it was required to disclose the identities of its donors.
On Friday, U.S. District Judge D. Brock Hornby granted a summary judgment upholding the constitutionality of Maine's election disclosure laws.

Maine law says groups that raise or spend more than $5,000 to influence elections must register with the state and disclose their donors. NOM donated $1.9 million to Stand for Marriage Maine, a political action committee that helped repeal Maine's same sex marriage law in November 2009.
It's unknown whether NOM will appeal. A message left at NOM's offices in New Jersey wasn't immediately returned.
Oh NOM, just stop. It's time to come clean and let us know how the Mormon Church is backing your hateful asses. We will know soon.

To read the ruling, go here (and it's the source)
