National Organization for Marriage Files Suit against IRS
by Terri Eyden on
Included in the article is a link to a PDF of NOM's Schedule B, which includes the names and addresses of NOM donors, the Huffington Post said it received from HRC. HRC stated it received the document from a "whistleblower." The Huffington Post has refused to take the article off of its website.
In a press release dated March 30, 2012, HRC also confirmed Romney's PAC donation to NOM, based on "never-before-seen financial documents from the National Organization for Marriage."
HRC claimed it reviewed copies of Romney's Free and Strong America PAC filings with the Federal Election Commission, and no contribution to NOM was disclosed in 2008.
"However, knowing that oftentimes federal leadership PACs create state PAC entities in places where contribution limits do not exist or disclosure laws are lax, HRC did discover an Alabama-based Free and Strong America PAC that in 2008 does disclose the $10,000 contribution to NOM," HRC stated in the release.
HRC also cited an October 28, 2008, article in Utah's Deseret News in which a Romney spokesperson claims a contribution to Prop 8 was made, but there is no evidence of disclosure of a contribution to the effort.
"If Romney's spokesperson is accurate, then both Romney's PAC and NOM may have violated California disclosure laws," HRC stated.
NOM Chairman John Eastman testified on June 4, 2013, before the House Ways and Means Committee about the leak of the organization's confidential tax return information. He said NOM filed written requests for investigation on April 11, 2012, with both the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) and the US Department of Justice.
