Weeks after documents revealed that one Mitt Romney’s political action committees made an undisclosed $10,000 contribution in 2008 to the National Organization for Marriage (NOM), the California state government has begun an investigation of the anti-LGBT group’s finances. In response to a complaint filed by openly gay Republican presidential candidate Fred Karger, the California Fair Political Practices Commission said this week it has opened an investigation into the nearly $350,000 secretly raised by NOM for its pro-Proposition 8 efforts in the state. NOM has frequently sought to avoid state disclosure laws to avoid identifying its donors.
