NOM: Supreme Court Refuses to Review Maine Election Laws

The Supreme Court today refused to consider whether Maine election disclosure laws unfairly affected the effort of anti-gay group, National Organization for Marriage.

NOM steered hundreds of thousands of dollars to another anti-gay group  Stand for Marriage in Maine. Maine has adopted laws that institute contribution limits, a public financing system for state-office candidates, and various reporting and disclosure requirements for groups that advocate for political issues. NOM has repeatedly refused to comply with various state disclosure laws     including Maine's.

A "People's Veto" in 2009 has left Maine as the only state in New England that does not recognize marriage equality. Marriage equality supporters have put the issue on the ballot again in 2012.
