Money down the crapper

Thursday afternoon Brian Brown, head of National Organization for Marriage sent out a missive titled “Urgent Need for Funds to File Supreme Court Brief.” That would be an amicus brief in the case of G.G. v. Gloucester County School Board. It’s not even a brief on the merits. Rather it supports why the Supreme Court should hear the case. NOM’s brief in the matter is irrelevant. It is one of many. More here. Nevertheless, you would think that they found gold somewhere. These emails are beginning to sound like those Nigerian advance fee scams:

You may remember that I told you last Friday that NOM is preparing to file a critically important brief with the US Supreme Court to challenge President Obama’s authority to impose his dangerous gender ideology policies that allow biological males into intimate facilities reserved for females, such as showers and bathrooms. President Obama wants his badly misguided policies to be adopted by every public school in America, risking the privacy and safety of our children and grandchildren.

NOM’s brief has been completed and is at the printer’s office being readied for submission to the Court. But I am extremely concerned because we lack the funds to pay for the expenses associated with preparing and filing the brief.

And what the fuck does any of this have to do with marriage?
