Karger files charges against National Organization Marriage in California for unreported $345,400 in Prop 8 contributionsBreaking News, Top Highlights Monday, May 21st, 2012
Fred Karger filed a sworn supplemental complaint Monday against the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) with the California Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC). The 37 page request for investigation accuses the National Organization of Marriage of not reporting $345,400 in contributions that it received from 11 donors in 2008, including GOP Presidential candidate Mitt Romney. NOM was the single largest contributor to California‘s Proposition 8 campaign that year.
Karger and his staff will learn more about its findings and whether the California Fair Political Practices Commission will look into the alleged charges.
NOM has taken center stage since its Prop 8 win in California in 2008 and poured money into half the states across the county to fight the freedom to marry, oppose pro marriage equality candidates, qualify constitutional amendments to ban gay marriage, force GOP Presidential candidates to sign its hateful “Marriage Pledge,” attack judges, governors, mayors, and even former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor.
Karger has promised to remain vigilant against the National Organization for Marriage to expose its numerous alleged illegal activities before the appropriate state and federal authorities.
