Maybe we'll find out that old POS asstroll's name from Holyoke, that has been switching names and spouting hate speech on here for years. The consequences for your actions are coming just for you asstroll.

How many years can they keep dragging this out?

Our judicial system sucks.

It takes 8-10 years for a case to be resolved, then the losers can just ignore the ruling.

I thought NOM had lost its case more times than Lisa Miller. Why haven't Maggie and Brian gone to jail yet?

And what good is campaign disclosure four years after the fact? The only effective punishment would be to halt the election in question.

Actualy, the U.S. Constitution gives some poeple "SPECIAL RIGHTS". The First Amendment grants "SPECIAL RIGHTS" to some people". For instance, right now both conservatives and liberals have agrred with one another and have joined forces to protect a reporter, Jana Winter, from divulging information in a court case, BECAUSE SHE IS A REPORTER. If she were NOT a reporter, there would be no question that she would have to testify.

Also, clergymen, and many physicians, such as psychiatrists cannot be compelled to divulge information, where a person who was not a member of those professions would have to do so.

Many states have a long list of prefessions whose members are exempted from jury duty.

A person who is at least 35 years old has a "special right" to be POTUS while a 34 year old person does not.

And many members of racial minority groups have "SPECIAL RIGHTS" to certain government programs thatteh average person does not.

So knock it off with this "SPECIAL RIGHTS" crap.

Why don't you just ignore the haters and pretend that they don't exist ?

We already know you're a "wide stance" right winger or fundamentalist. It's not news. Now plead no contest.

What little is known about NOM's finances is that nearly 75% of their funding is coming from only a half dozen or so sources. They've been laundering money for these individuals or groups since the Prop 8 campaign. As long as they keep their mouths shut as to who is funding them, it keeps rolling in.

You don't have to be psychic to see exactly how this will play out. Maine's Court will politely listen to their arguments and politely tell them no. This will immediately be appealed to the SCOTUS, which will of course, not give it a hearing. NOM will then immediately file in federal court against the ruling.

They'll die out soon enough. They're on the losing side of history.

Actually, their donors already see the writing on the stall. NOM's funding has dried up. If they could win this battle, the spigots would reopen. As it is, the donors don't want their identities known. So they give NOM just enough money to keep fighting to protect their identities.

I imagine that their success in the last elections hasn't helped their future prospects, but they still had enough coming in before then to meddle everywhere they said they would. As far as I've heard, they aren't bouncing any checks yet. Their days as a force to be reckoned with are seriously over, but there is still going to be good money to be made by them for years to come. Even if they lose 99% of the folk who have written checks to them over the years, they still have that 1%, that at this point, can't afford not to keep them happy, well funded and in court trying to keep their little black book out of the public record.

Why do you want our numbers?

We don't have the cure for anal prolapse, AIDS, or meningitis.

No one does.

I'm better than you.

Actually, I don't believe they lived up to their promises to help defeat Republicans who voted against them. And they've made smaller threats against recent defectors.

I find it fascinating that they still call themselves non-partisan, but they focus on Republican candidates. If they were non-partisan and they had the resources, they would attack ALL legislators who voted against their wishes. But their real goal is only to keep the Republicans in-line, because they know they've lost the larger fight.

Even their donors must see the foolishness of using resources to attack only members of their preferred party. It's a great way to throw elections to the opposition party.

The only thing NOM has left is their fear of being outed.

Yep, maybe in another 20 years they'll finally be forced to release the donor names.

Gotta love our moronic judicial system.
