the Supreme Court has refused to even hear an appeal from NOM, the National Organization For Marriage, related to their consistent and repeated attempts to skirt laws requiring them to make public their list of donors.
“The high court on Monday turned aside an appeal from the National Organization for Marriage, which donated $1.9 million to a political action committee that helped repeal Maine’s same-sex marriage law,” the Boston Globe reported:
Maine’s campaign disclosure law requires groups that raise or spend more than $5,000 to influence elections to register and disclose their donors. The group says that it believes that releasing the donor list would stymie free speech, but the lower court refused to throw out the law.
