National Organization for Marriage

National Organization for Marriage still has to explain some highly suspect financial transactions during 2012. As I noted last November, NOM Education Fund (“NOMed”) took in over $4,000,000 in large contributions. At least 80% of that money was spent to support NOM.

Why is that a problem? Contributions to NOMed are tax deductible while contributions to NOM are not. The appearance is that NOM used NOMed as a conduit so that donations could be tax deductible.

I made a referral to the Service last November. We should have NOM’s 2013 financial reports in about three weeks. I will refer the matter again, either for 2012 and 2013 or just 2012.
