NOM Says It Will Continue To Purposely Defy Campaign Disclosure Laws in Minnesota – Wheres The Justice?

The Minnesota Independent reports:

Last week, the Minnesota Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board announced it was considering updating its rules to close loopholes in the ballot initiative’s reporting requirements. The board released guidance to outside groups that want to donate to ballot campaigns such as Minnesota for Marriage which supports the amendment or Minnesotans United for All Families which opposes the amendment, and spelled out how those donations would be disclosed.

The guidance would heighten public disclosure around campaign spending and will be debated before the board this week. On Tuesday, Minnesota for Marriage (working alongside with the National Organization for Marriage) cried foul and said it would only do what it had planned to in the past, calling the new guidance “illegal.”

The National Organization for Marriage has already broken the law in Maine and Rhode Island where the courts have ruled against it but continues to hide the names of its donors.

Where are the legal ramifications and punishments that NOM should be facing for for blatantly ignoring the law?

Would ANY group get away with this behavior? Is justice BLIND, DEAF and DUMB?  Or just afraid of a quasi-religious organization with low friends in high places?

MAINE. RHODE ISLAND, AND MINNESOTA.  STAND BY YOUR LAWS AND COURT RULINGS AND PROSCECUTE AND PUNISH THE NATIONAL ORGANIZATION FOR MARRIAGE WITH BREAKING THE LAW!
