NY Times: NOM "scuttles away from the light".

In a scathing editorial, the NY Times looks at the race-baiting politics of NOM, the National Organization for Marriage (inequality).  
When a light is shined into the dark corners of American politics, it’s never pleasant to see what scurries away. .... 
[NOM] uses its designation as a social welfare organization to avoid federal disclosure, but the memos dispel any notion that the claim has any legitimacy. National Organization for Marriage is a political group, through and through..... 
[T]he most appalling portions [of the documents] deal with the group’s racially and ethnically divisive strategies..... 
Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich have publicly aligned themselves with the group and signed its pledge to work aggressively from the White House against same-sex marriage. 
Now that the group’s poisonous political approach is out in the open, Mr. Romney and the others should be racing to make clear their disapproval. 
We detect no stampede.

I want to see folks challenge the Romney on this at every campaign stop.  Romney donated $10,000 to NOM and Prop8.  It's his group.  Let's see what he does with it.
