NOM Loses Appeal in Maine, Says it Will Go to Supreme Court

The National Organization for Marriage (NOM) lost another appeal today to keep its donor list secret in Maine, the AP reports:

Nom_maineThe decision pertains to ballot question committees in Maine and represents a second defeat for the National Organization for Marriage, which previously lost a challenge to the state's political action committee laws and laws governing independent expenditures and advertising attribution and disclaimers.

The latest appeal focused on part of the law that says groups that raise or spend more than $5,000 to influence elections must register and disclose their donors.

And despite being beaten down legally, NOM promised yesterday to pour money into Maine to oppose a new effort to pass marriage equality there.
