Protectmarriage.com and the National Organization for Marriage (NOM), the groups that supported the passage of Proposition 8, have lost their suit for exemption from California’s campaign finance disclosure laws. U.S. District Judge Morrison England Jr. ruled the groups had to comply with all disclosure laws, including listing any donor who gives $100 or more in any future campaigns.
