NOM Ruling Affects Campaign Ads


A federal judge in Maine ruled in favor of the National Organization for Marriage Thursday, which claimed that a campaign finance law for political action committees was too burdensome.

District judge Brock Hornby's ruling upholds most of Maine's regulations with regard to political action committees, but he also ruled the rule mandating PACs to disclose expenditures of more than $250 is unconstitutionally burdensome, according to the Associated Press.

The lawsuit stems from NOM's efforts to repeal marriage equality in Maine, at which it succeeded in November 2009 via ballot initiative. NOM wants to run advertisements related to the upcoming election in November.
