In fact, remarkably nearly all the money donated against gay marriage in Maine has come from institutions, and only a few hundred dollars from individuals.
The Group Californians Against Hate suspects this is money laundering.
Letters and emails from NOM Executive Director Brian Brown were included where he stated:Californians Against Hate suggest that this is an effort to get around the Maine disclosure laws, and the Maine Ethics commission will investigate.
“And unlike in California, every dollar you give to NOM’s Northeast Action Plan today is private, with no risk of harassment from gay marriage protestors.”
“Donations to NOM are not tax-deductible and they are NOT public information, either.”
“Your gift is confidential: no public disclosure! "
There's a reason haters want their names secret. It's the same reason, frankly,that the Klan wore hoods.
