Fred Karger Files Complaint Against NOM with California Fair Political Practices Commission Over Romney Donation
Republican presidential candidate Fred Karger, who has been tracking the National Organization for Marriage's finances and attempts to seal away their donors from the light of day for years, has filed a complaint with the California Fair Political Practices Commission regarding the recent revelations that they tried to sneak a donation from Mitt Romney through an obscure Alabama PAC.
Recently unsealed documents by a federal judge from the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) indicate possible illegal campaign activities by the National Organization for Marriage in California. It appears that NOM attempted to hide a $10,000 contribution from Governor Mitt Romney in 2008.
NOM, acting via “National Organization for Marriage California – Yes on 8, Sponsored by National Organization for Marriage” is a primarily formed recipient committee that supported Proposition 8 in 2008. As a primarily formed recipient committee, NOM is required to report all receipts and disbursements...
...NOM did not report that contribution on any of its filings with the California Secretary of State in 2008 or 2009. Contributions larger and smaller received by NOM earlier and later in October 2008 appear to all be reported, but the Romney PAC contribution was not. There is also no record of NOM filing the mandatory 90-day election cycle report triggered by Governor Romney’s PAC contribution...
...It appears that the National Organization for Marriage attempted to hide the Romney PAC contribution because of the significant attention that it would have received.
I hereby request that the California Fair Political Practices Commission investigate this irregularity to determine if the National Organization for Marriage conspired with Governor Romney’s Alabama Free and Strong America PAC to hide his $10,000 contribution to its Yes on Proposition 8 Campaign.
Recently, NOM President Brian Brown has been bleating that NOM is the victim of a Watergate-style criminal act by HRC and an insider at the IRS, who released their tax returns without authorization.
