NOM Denied Nondislosure in Maine


A federal judge on Monday denied a request by the antigay National Organization for Marriage to suspend the reporting requirements for ballot initiatives in Maine.

NOM argued that the reporting requirements amounted to a violation of the group's First Amendment rights. The group is trying to pass Question 1, the ballot initiative that would ban same-sex marriage in Maine.

NOM's ability to continue to fund-raise for Question 1 will not be affected by the judge's decision, according to the Associated Press.

"The ethics commission voted Oct. 1 to examine contributions by the National Organization for Marriage after it was accused of not reporting the names of many donors," the AP reported. "But the commission's investigation won't be completed until long after Election Day."
