This cartoon comes from this week's edition of The New Yorker.

It's funny, I guess, but I can also see Christian conservatives like Bryan Fischer or Maggie Gallagher pointing to this and saying, "See, this is why gays shouldn't get married: no procreation!"

Fred Karger Files Complaint Against NOM with California Fair Political Practices Commission Over Romney Donation

M_gallagher

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.

Writes Karger: Karger

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.

Maggie Gallagher has been repeating the accusations. Watch her discuss it with Bruce DePuyt on NewsTalk, AFTER THE JUMP...

Maggie Gallagher: Whether I'm Married or Not is Irrelevant

Yesterday Republican presidential candidate and NOM investigator Fred Karger sent out an email speculating that 'marriage defender' Maggie Gallagher may not actually be married because she never wears a wedding ring in public or appears with her husband Roman Srivastav.

Maggie_gallagherGallagher spoke to Buzzfeed about Karger's accusations:

Gallagher laughed when asked about Karger's speculation, and said "I think I would know better than Fred."

Gallagher, who was a single mother for years after college, says she married her husband Raman Srivastav in Arizona in 1993: "We are still married and living together. He's a very private person."

"They just make up all kind of stuff about me," she said. "It doesn't really matter. I could be divorced and I still could not be for gay marriage. I don't really see that it's relevant. It is a fact — I am in fact married. I've only been married once. I am not about to get a divorce."

Said Karger, who has been pursuing NOM's corrupt election finances and tactics for years: "I'm taking the gloves off. I've been a little reticent to go after [Gallagher] personally, but no more."
