Money down the crapper

Brian S. Brown head of National Organization for Marriage does it again. This time the organization – with an assist from Frank Schubert* – ran negative ads against Donald Trump in South Carolina in support of their endorsed candidate, Ted Cruz. Apparently those advertisements were not terribly convincing. Cruz finished third behind a guy that has to get plugged in 45 minutes before every appearance.

It is all rather odd because just last Friday NOM told us:


“Our powerful TV ad in South Carolina is contributing to the tightening of the race. Please, forward this ad to anyone you know in South Carolina and ask them to watch it.” Maybe not.

It has us all wondering: What will NOM do next?

* Frank Schubert, NOM’s adjunct political director likely had his hand in producing the commercial and purchasing the air time. On February 13, Schubert sent out an email to NOM supporters titled “FW: BREAKING: ✉ Powerful New NOM TV Commercial; Help Us ‘Dump Trump.’“
