    I'm sure some of his donors would like their mony back. In the light of his recent "successes" in Maryland, Wahsington, Maine and Minnessota they can't even pretend that he has earned every cent of his compensation.

    I'm trying to find a way to be outraged by this, but I can't. if NOM is willing to throw crazy amounts of money at a man who failed four times over last November; who am I to argue? In fact, I kinda wish they'd given him more money. That way NOM crumbles to pieces even faster.

    He might be a secret gay SPY bringing the institution down from inside.

    To be fair, he does need to be heavily compensated for all the negativity he must deal with in a position like that...

    Whenever giving to charity or other nonprofit, loving donors probably expect reasonable administrative costs.

    Hope they continue to throw good money after bad. I am sure many of the NOM members would like some of their money back. I am also sure we have not heard the end of this.

    IRS should look into it. My bet is this violates their guidelines for non-profit compensation.
