Only one Mainer gave to anti-gay marriage PAC

Press Herald - The National Organization for Marriage has filed its campaign finance report from its 2009 bid to overturn Maine’s marriage equality law, revealing its donors to the ballot initiative for the first time. The report, released Monday, marks the culmination of a four-year-long battle between the country’s leading opponent of gay marriage and the Maine Ethics Commission.

The list of donors includes one person from Maine: Richard Kurtz of Cape Elizabeth. Kurtz, who along with his wife, Virginia, has donated to Gov. Paul LePage and the Maine Republican Party, donated $50,000 to NOM in 2009. Kurtz is also listed as giving $1,000 to the 2008 campaign to overturn California’s marriage equality law.
