$37,082.85: Amount Spent By National Anti-Gay Group To Turn Local Iowa Election Into Marriage Referendum

The National Organization for Marriage continues to meddle in the Iowa special state Senate race between Democrat Liz Mathis and Republican Cindy Golding. NOM has now spent over $37,000 supporting Golding in hopes of eliminating the Democratic majority in the Iowa Senate to allow for a rollback of marriage equality — even though Golding has repeatedly said the race should focus on local issues like jobs and economic development. Using an alliance with Iowa’s FAMiLY LEADER to compensate for its lack of on-the-ground presence, NOM is injecting an incredible amount of national money into a local race with absolutely no accountability for where the money is coming from.
