Anti-gay NOM pledges another $2 million to promote bigotry across New York state

Anti-gay NOM pledges another $2 million to promote bigotry across New York state

Following passage of the Marriage Equality Act in the New York state legislature on Friday, the anti-gay National Organization for Marriage (NOM) announced last night that it would commit another $2 million to spreading hate and bigotry across the Empire State.

The NOM said it would target four Republicans — Jim Alesi, Roy McDonald, Steve Saland, and Mark Grisanti– who provided the margin of passage.

The National Organization for Marriage’s (NOM) president, Brian Brown doubled his previous pledge, promising to commit “at least $2 million” in elections in 2012 to make sure Republicans understand that voting for gay marriage has consequences:

“The Republican party has torn up its contract with the voters who trusted them in order to facilitate Andrew Cuomo’s bid to be president of the U.S. Selling out your principles to get elected is wrong. Selling out your principles to get the other guy elected is just plain dumb.


“We are not giving up, we will continue to fight to protect marriage in New York, as we are actively doing in New Hampshire and Iowa.”

“We were sold out by the Republican Party in New York,” whined Brown.
