Is The Real face of the Anti-America Maggie Gallagher?
By Melanie Nathan, March 28, 2012,
The National organization for Marriage (NOM,) is currently being investigated by the State of Maine with regards to possible campaign finance violations, resulting in the revelation of documents they attempted to keep from the public eye. But now they have been exposed!
The documents, made public with thanks to the tenacity of openly gay Republican presidential candidate , Fred Karger, reveal the startling strategies, outlined in detail, by the anti-gay group.
Their plan was to “fan hostilities” between African Americans and LGBT people in the U.S. and to recruit “glamorous, non-cognitive celebrities” to advocate against same-sex marriage.
On Tuesday night’s Countdown with Keith Olbermann, the Human Rights Campaign’s legal director Brian Moulton was on hand to discuss the revelations about the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) and its willingness to embrace racially divisive tactics to achieve its goal of denying marriage equality to same-sex couples.
The level to which these people have stooped is unconscionable. I now feel more of right than ever, to call Brian Brown, Maggie Gallagher, Christopher Plante, Jennifer Roback Morse, Robert George UN-AMERICAN!
From this moment on, we should all refuse to report on their anti-gay rantings, thereby doing our piece to silence them. We should not fuel their illegitimacy with our reporting. From this point on we should only report what we may further uncover and also only the results of legal actions and investigations against them.
There cannot be an organization less worthy of our time other than to prosecute and sue to the fullest extent of the law!
Thanks to Fred Karger for his work on exposing NOM:
Via an E-mail Fred sent me yesterday:-
“I have been fighting the evil National Organization for Marriage (NOM) since July 2008. The New York and LA Times broke the story when I boycotted Doug Manchester’s 3 hotels because of his $125,000 contribution to Yes on Prop 8 which he gave through NOM.
My activism has taken me all over the country trying to shed some light on all NOM’s dastardly deeds.
On October 1, 2009 it took me to Maine where I filed a sworn complaint against NOM with the Maine Ethics Commission for suspected money laundering. NOM was required to report its donors to that state’s election to take away marriage equality one month later. The Ethics Commission agreed to investigate NOM and late last night we hit pay dirt. After the investigation began, NOM sued Maine in federal and state courts to avoid reporting its donors. The suits have all been lost so far.
These “Confidential” documents were released by the judge in the federal case:
