91% of Stand for Marriage Maine’s October Cash Came from 3 Religious Groups
A recently-released campaign finance report reveals that between October 1 and October 20, the anti-gay group “Stand for Marriage Maine” raised $1,410,689.80 in cash contributions. $1.4 million is a lot of money, especially for small-state Maine politics.
91% of that money came from just three sources:
The New Jersey based fundamentalist Christian organization called the National Organization for Marriage sent in $1,100,000.00.
The Rome, Italy based Christian organization called the Roman Catholic Church sent in $168,448.93.
The Colorado based fundamentalist Christian organization called Focus on the Family sent in $15,000.00.
Just so you know who propped up this anti-gay, anti-equality, discriminatory effort.
