In his latest “send-me-money,” NOM’s Brian Brown claims:
If we can take full advantage of this Year-End Million Dollar Match, we will enter 2012 ready to go toe-to-toe all across America with the anti-marriage radicals…taking the $782,111 we have already raised and strategically deploying it in preparation for early fights in the courts, over the airwaves, in the halls of power, and at the ballot box…and WIN.
Now I support marriage equality. In the real world that means that I support marriage. For example, I want the children of gay couples to have married parents (shouldn’t a true conservative insist?).
In federal court, NOM failed to offer any argument that might support the notion that marriage equality has any effect on so-called “traditional marriage.”
Exactly how marriage equality is either “anti-marriage” or “radical” shall remain one of the mysteries of fund raising. Were NOM more prudent with donated money they might not be insolvent. They had a negative net asset value as of their last IRS filing.
With so much at stake in 2012 (marriage under fire in dozens of states, the legal case to uphold Prop 8 in California, a bill to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act moving through the Senate, and the most important Presidential election for marriage ever), we MUST build on . . .
Even he must realize that NOM cannot solicit contributions that will be used, as implied, in the Presidential election. Moreover, the taxpayers are currently footing the DOMA legal bill.
