Breaking: Iowa ethics board will investigate National Organization for Marriage

Brian S. Brown
The Iowa Ethics and Campaign Disclosure Board has voted unanimously to investigate the National Organization for Marriage, saying that if the allegations against it are proven true, NOM violated state law.

The decision to investigate is an important victory for Fred Karger, who filed the complaint against NOM on June 13.

Karger said the group spent $635,000 in 2010 and about $100,000 in 2012 to try to oust four of the justices who were part of a unanimous 2009 decision that allowed same-sex marriag in Iowa. Karger's complaint is that, once again, National Organization for Marriage failed to disclose its donors as required by state law.

Megan Tooker, the ethics board’s lawyer and executive director, noted that the National Organization for Marriage was “absolutely wrong” in several of its interpretations of state law.
