Fred Karger zapping NOM in New England election ads

Karger, the ex-GOP operative (and current GOP presidential candidate) who has more than redeemed himself by single-handedly causing more trouble for the Mormon church and NOM than one would think possible, is now going after NOM again in his election ads. Killing two birds with one stone certainly saves money...

Karger has made ads before. Here's one in the 70s for Edge shaving cream.

Email from Fred Karger:

“Brian Brown, NOM’s President, threatened in a video on November 3rd — the day after the election last fall — that NOM was going to repeal gay marriage in New Hampshire just like it has done in California and Maine. Brown also said that NOM was going to qualify a Constitutional Amendment in New Hampshire to end marriage equality by writing a ban into the state Constitution.”
     “NOM is relentless and stops at nothing to hurt and demean people,” added Karger. “I want to let the citizens of New Hampshire know exactly what they are up against. This is the group that spent $1.5 MILLION to try and defeat Governor Lynch in the November election with their nasty commercials. NOM spent millions more in direct mail, robo calls, radio and TV commercials to overthrow the statehouse. NOM recently hit a roadblock, however, when Republican House Majority leader D. J. Bettencourt said that the Marriage issue would have to wait until 2012. NOM’s response: a direct mail piece viciously attacking him to all the voters in his district.”
     “NOM plays hardball and will not stop. I know better than anyone, I have been tracking the National Organization for Marriage since they began in California in 2008 to qualify and pass Proposition 8.”
