My former AINN colleague Sofia Resnick reports at the American Independent that the National Organization for Marriage is running out of cash and desperately asking its followers to bail them out after spending far more money than they took in last year.
One day after The American Independent released an analysis of the National Organization for Marriage’s recently reported finances from 2010, which reveal that last year the organization spent more than $1 million than it earned, NOM President Brian Brown emailed supporters asking for help covering what he terms a “looming shortfall.”
- Should I abandon a state like Maryland, New Jersey or Rhode Island, where marriage is under fire?
- Should I scale back our efforts to repeal same-sex marriage in a state like Iowa, New Hampshire or New York?
- Should I stop our Washington-based lobbying efforts to protect the Defense of Marriage Act (there is new legislation to repeal DOMA) and just hope for the best?
- Should I scale back our plans for the presidential election, letting President Obama off the hook for the lies he will tell on the campaign trail?
Nope. You should just close your doors. You’re on the losing side of history, just like your predecessors were in opposing interracial marriage 45 years ago. Give up.
