State Ethics Panel to Investigate NOM
In a surprise move, the state of California’s ethics office announced Wednesday that it will investigate Fred Karger’s complaint against the anti-gay National Organization for Marriage (NOM).
In his sworn complaint of May 17, Karger alleged that NOM did not report over $340,000 that it raised to pass Proposition 8 four years ago. California joins the state of Maine which is in its third year of its investigation of NOM, the leading anti-gay marriage organization in the country.
Karger received a notification letter dated May 28, 2012 on Tuesday from Gary Winuk, the Chief Enforcement Officer of the California Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC).
