NOM Broke

Get out the tiny violin.

On Wednesday, the viciously anti-gay National Organization for Marriage finally released its 2013 tax filings—two days late, in direct violation of federal law. The results are nothing short of brutal. NOM raised $5.1 million last year—a 50 percent drop-off from its 2012 earnings. Two donors accounted for more than half of that money. And the group’s “Education Fund,” which churns out anti-gay propaganda and homophobic calumny, raised less than $1.7 million, a 70 percent decline from 2012. NOM closed out the year more than $2.5 million in debt.

Heh.  Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of bigots.

One bark on “NOM Broke

  1. NOM raised $5.1 million last year… Two donors accounted for more than half of that money.

    TWO donors.

    It’s always amazing to me that common-sense policy gets held hostage by single-digit-sized groups of wingnuts. I keep thinking of the Benny Hill skit where the business-owner (Hill) is being asked about his “quality product at popular prices” slogan, and when faced with a ridiculous price for something, says of the pricing “I like it.”
