“Gay marriage opponents reveal donors from 2009 Maine campaign”

Portland Press Herald:

The National Organization for Marriage has filed its campaign finance report from its 2009 bid to overturn Maine’s marriage equality law, revealing its donors to the ballot initiative for the first time.

The report, released Monday, marks the culmination of a four-year-long battle between the country’s leading opponent of gay marriage and the Maine Ethics Commission.

The report shows that seven major donors gave NOM more than $2 million in 2009. The organization then funneled that money to Stand for Marriage Maine, the Maine-based political action committee that became the public face of the successful bid to overturn Maine’s marriage equality law.
