Abstract

"The Talk of Maine" piece on how a group that worked successfully to repeal Maine's new law recognizing same sex marriage refuses to comply with Maine law in disclosing where its money came from. Stand for Marriage Maine, the principal organization supporting the repeal, has filed paperwork showing that 64 percent of its funding came from New Jersey-based National Organization for Marriage (NOM), which refuses to disclose the names of its donors. NOM has filed a suit against Maine's Commission on Governmental Ethics and Election Practices and a variety of other officials, claiming the disclosure requirements are an undue burden on their first amendment rights. NOM also asked the court to freeze the ethics investigation.
