No on 1: How much hate can $1.4 million buy?

No on 1/Protect Maine Equality
October 24, 2009

No on 1/Protect Maine Equality: Anti-gay group, Yes on 1, has filed a fundraising report showing they raised $1.4 million in just 20 days. Over $1.1 million of that came from the National Organization for Marriage, a radical anti-equality group from New Jersey. $1.4 million buys a lot of airtime in Maine, and their latest ad is just more of the same misleading scare tactics they've been using all along.

We need your help as we enter the final 10 days of this campaign. We know that with their new, 1.4 million-dollar war chest, mostly from one of the country's most radical anti-equality groups, the opposition's most vitriolic attack is right around the corner.
