$550K Added to Fight for Marriage Equality in Maryland by Republican Billionaire Paul Singer and HRC

Money is pouring in to the Maryland campaign for marriage equality.

They report: MD

Republican Paul Singer today gave $250,000 to Marylanders for Marriage Equality, the lead group working to pass marriage equality in Maryland. Singer runs the firm Elliot Management in New York City and has given more than $10 million to marriage equality efforts across the country.

“Paul’s leadership on marriage equality continues to amaze and sets an example for other fair-minded members of the Republican Party,” said Chad Griffin, president of the Human Rights Campaign, a founder of Marylanders for Marriage Equality. “His investment in the equality and dignity of Marylanders reflects the growing bipartisan support to get Question 6 over the finish line in these critical final weeks.”

And HRC has added to its pledges as well:

This latest contribution includes $150,000 to Marylanders for Marriage Equality and another $150,000 to the NAACP Maryland Marriage PAC as part of the $1 million the organization gave to the four statewide marriage campaigns. HRC has given $1.53 million in cash and in-kind donations to the pro-Question 6 campaign — and a total of $7.3 million to efforts to defend same-sex marriage laws at the ballot in Maryland, Maine and Washington and defeat a proposed state constitutional amendment in Minnesota that would define marriage as between a man and a woman on Election Day.

  1. Just a clarification: Maryland has ALREADY passed marriage equality. But the bigot brigade led by Christo-fascists Maggie Gallagher, Brian Brown and Uncle Harry Jackson bribed enough fellow bigots to put our civil rights up for a repeal vote.

  2. Anyone in Maryland, get as many people out as you can to vote EARLY (meaning NOW) and vote FOR question 6.

  3. Mr. Singer has also given many millions to the Romney campaign.

  7. Live in MD? Nearby?
    PLEASE SHOW UP OUTSIDE CATHOLIC CHURCHES and many Black churches, the next 2 Sundays. Dress nicely, bring your partner, and ask people to vote for equality, no matter what the pope says and some Black preachers say.

  8. Bob, that's a winning strategy. I hope more people will do so.
