NOM gives up on persuasion in Illinois as it resorts to threats

Apparently National Organization for Marriage has given up on convincing Republican legislators to vote for marriage discrimination. In a press release issued this morning:
"Any Republican in Illinois who betrays the cause of marriage will be casting a career-ending vote and will be held accountable to their constituents," said Brian Brown, NOM's president. "We will spend whatever it takes—hundreds of thousands of dollars if necessary—to remove them from office, just as we did three of the four turncoat Republican state Senators in New York who were responsible for gay 'marriage' passing there. We will not hesitate to support pro-family Democrats to replace them, as our record in New York proves."
In point of fact, NOM spent a few thousand dollars in New York and might have unseated one legislator. In fact their prime target, Senator Mark Grisanti, won reelection with impressive margins. Presumably even Sean Fieler, NOM's biggest donor, has his limits given diminishing returns.
