I'm guessing NOM's defense - If we release the names of our donors, the gay mafia will hunt them down and send their heads to MSNBC where they'll be labeled homophobes - didn't actually work and they have to follow the law.
U.S. Magistrate Judge John Rich III said in a document dated Sunday that the National Organization for Marriage, which contributed $1.9 million to the campaign to repeal Maine's gay marriage law, should turn over fundraising documents dating back to Jan. 1, 2009 to the Maine Commission on Governmental Ethics and Election Practices.
Not that they're likely to follow a judge's ruling if there isn't an immediate threat of jail time. NOM isn't known for their commitment to democracy or for actually listening to what activist judges have to say.
You see, they're on the right side of this battle, so they're above the law. Although it's interesting that that confidence is used as an excuse to stay in the closet.
