NOM Spent Over $700,000 In Anti-Gay Minnesota Fight


We all know that the National Organization for Marriage spent hundreds of thousands of dollars in their 2010 fight against marriage equality in Minnesota.

Now the Minnesota Independent tells us how much:

Findings by the Minnesota Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board show that the National Organization for Marriage spent $709,000 on radio and television ads during the gubernatorial campaign in 2010.

Those ads targeted [Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party member] Mark Dayton and Independence Party candidate Tom Horner for their support for marriage equality and lent support for the campaign of Republican Tom Emmer, who supported a constitutional amendment barring same-sex marriage.

The ads, paid for by the New Jersey-based NOM were created by the California-based Schubert Flint Public Affairs.

Just think of all the good NOM and their allies could have done with that money, rather than financing discrimination and hate.
