Courts Roundly Reject NOM’s False Cries of Harassment

It’s no secret the so-called National Organization for Marriage (NOM) has gone to great lengths to hide their big donors – they’ve filed challenges to disclosure laws in states across the country, claiming their supporters are often “harassed” by equality supporters.

A new HRC report is showing how that false claim is being roundly rejected by every single court in which NOM brings such challenges:

“…over the past few weeks and months, multiple federal judges and state boards have thrown out NOM-backed cases, concluding the reasons NOM cites for needing such secrecy – LGBT people are bullies and will harass NOM supporters – is bogus and without sufficient evidence. NOM has unsuccessfully challenged disclosure laws in Washington, Maine, Minnesota, New York, California, Rhode Island, and Iowa. In fact, in every jurisdiction that NOM and its allies have tried to undermine public disclosure they have lost.”

The Huffington Post today takes a look at NOM’s court losses. NOM did not respond to requests for a comment in the article.
