That’s right. In their never-ending battle against same-sex marriage, the National Organization for Marriage has spent towards the campaign of Massachusetts Republican Scott Brown – the man who posed nude for Cosmo, and voted in favor of the Marriage Amendment in Massachusetts’ legislature – $50,000. Specifically, according to a NOM email sent today,
“That’s why NOM has endorsed Scott Brown for U.S. Senate and why we invested $50,000 in independent expenditures in this race over the past several days.”
A vote for Republican Scott Brown is a vote against marriage equality, against all LGBTQ rights, against healthcare reform, and against the memory of the Lion of the Senate, Ted Kennedy.
NOM calls Democrat Martha Coakley a “radical same-sex marriage activist.” because to take a stand for equality in the America of the National Organization for (Straights Only) Marriage, is to be a radical.
Since when was standing for equality in the United States of America radical?
Sadly, NOM has tons of cash on hand, the result of every gay marriage vote taken in any state that holds one, not to mention the rumors of their ties to the Mormon Church. (Because, really, do you think Myopic Maggie Gallagher can afford to spend $1.5 million on one TV ad without some help from a “higher power?”)
Please, defeat NOM. Defeat Scott Brown.
Make sure you – or your friends and family in Massachusetts vote tomorrow – for Martha Coakley. You’ll be protecting marriage equality and healthcare reform – two of the most important issues in America today.
