Today NOMExposed is launching an effort to fight back against what the National Organization for Marriage did in Iowa. NOM set its political bulls-eye on ousting three of Iowa’s Supreme Court justices who agreed that same-sex couples have a constitutional right to marry. On Election Day, all three lost. This was not about Iowa. (Marriage equality remains law in the state.) It was about scaring other judges across the country, including U.S. Supreme Court justices. NOM's message: either rule they way we want you to, or we’ll come after you. NOM’s actions were a heavy-handed assault on our nation’s courts. Sign our letter to U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts asking him to condemn NOM and to speak out for an independent judiciary free from bitter partisan political campaigns like the one waged in Iowa. Being virulently anti-LGBT is one thing. Tearing down our justice system is quite another.
