Brian S. Brown is coming for your money

Greedy Guy
National Organization for Marriage is still looking for more money using the matching donor scam. I would anyone donate to an organization that has been so consistently inept? Links removed:
Many people have responded with support for our critically-important Spring Matching Fund Drive, but with just one week to go, we really need your help. Every contribution we receive between now and midnight on May 1st will be matched, dollar for dollar. Unless we hit our goal of raising $100,000 during this time, we're going to have to make drastic budget cuts. Can you help with an immediate financial contribution?

Brian, I'll help with $15, which will be matched, doubling in effectiveness.
Brian, I'll help with $25, which will be matched, doubling in effectiveness.
Brian, I'll help with $50, which will be matched, doubling in effectiveness.
Brian, I'll help with $100, which will be matched, doubling in effectiveness.
Brian, I'll help with $250, which will be matched, doubling in effectiveness.
Brian, I'll help with $500, which will be matched, doubling in effectiveness.
Brian, I'll help with $1,000 or more, which will be matched, doubling in effectiveness.
Brian, I'll take grifters for 200.

I have no idea what NOM's payroll looks like today. During 2015 there were 16 full time employees. They 1099'd another 28 (39 the prior year). They claimed to have net asset of  negative $1.2 million. The deficit is understated. I cannot imagine that things are any better now. Stunts like the hate bus rarely work but I concede that Brian Brown understands his constituency much better than I do. In spite of insolvency and ineptitude, the faithful might still be willing to fork over some bucks.

Looking at accounts payable turnover it looks like vendors are not getting paid which means that contributions are liquidating old debts. I would bet my orbs that they have an unhappy landlord. Hidden in the numbers is the fact that Mr. Misadventure, old Reverse-Midas himself, is commuting from Philadelphia to DC at times and is probably staying in DC at NOM's expense.
