    "In 2010 the organization had a 17-member staff and no volunteers, and yet only four are listed as being paid: president Brian Brown ($212,500), then-board chair Gallagher ($152,500), treasurer Corkery ($25,000), and Jennifer Morse ($116,667). Morse is listed on the form as simply “employee,” but she is actually the founder and president of the Ruth Institute, which is a project of NOM’s 501(c)3, the NOM Education Fund – though Morse’s name does not appear on the Form 990 for this fund."

    If I was going to guess who one of the largest donors was, it would be Howard Ahmanson, Jr.

    Got any guesses on who they are?

    So two wealthy Mormons start a front group to spread their bigotry, and the media treats them like they're on par with HRC, which has tens of thousands of individual donors. I have read countless news articles about the fight for marriage equality that will quote a legitimate grassroots equality group and then counter with an anti-gay quote from NOM, which I'm sure is "in the interest of fairness" in the mind of a some journalist or editor who is fooled by these con artists.

    The fact that they have no real members might explain why they have to steal photos of Obama rallies and photoshop them to look like huge crowds turned out for their non-events.

    That should make it easy to snuff them out and get rid of the whole group. icon_wink.gif
