HRC exposes Iowa Family Leader partner, National Organization for Marriage, as phony grassroots lobby

Bob Vander Plaats and Tamara Scott got up to $100,000 in matching funds in their recent, failed character assasssination Jihad to remove Justice David Wiggins from Iowa's Supreme Court because he was part of a unanimous 2009 decision which ruled that denying same sex couples civil marriage licenses violated the equal protection clause in Iowa's constitution. Yesterday, the Human Rights Campaign showed up at the Washington offices of the National Organization for Marriage to request their latest 990 form. Given the pathetically small turnouts at NOM-sponsored bus tours, HRC's discovery is less than shocking:
NOM’s 2011 990 is available here. In addition to illustrating that more than $4.7 million of NOM’s total $6.2 million reported came from just two mysterious mega-donors, the documents also reveal some interesting information about NOM’s closest affiliates. For example, NOM paid $870,000 to CC Advertising – a group HRC recently filed an FCC complaint against for spamming unsuspecting cell phone users with anti-gay, anti-Obama text messages. The organization also paid nearly $375,000 to Frank Schubert, their ad guru who makes his living largely off of promoting anti-LGBT propaganda.
