MINNESOTA: NOM Pledges $500K Towards Defeat Of Pro-Gay Republicans

"Republicans like Branden Petersen don't realize that not only is voting to redefine marriage a terrible policy, it is also a career-ending vote for a Republican. NOM will do everything in our power to defeat any Republican who votes in favor of same-sex marriage. Legislators need look no further than what happened to GOP Senators in New York. Four of them were responsible for passing gay marriage. We helped take out three of those Senators by repeatedly informing their constituents of their betrayal on marriage. They are now out of office. We will not hesitate to do the same thing in Minnesota." - Hate group leader and secret Vatican employee Brian Brown, today pledging $500,000 towards the defeat of any Minnesota Republican who votes for marriage equality.

FACT CHECK: As I've pointed out here many times: The actual fact is that New York GOP Sen. James Alesi did not run because of a scandal involving a lawsuit he filed after being injured while trespassing at a stranger's house. The actual fact is that Sen. Shirley Huntley lost because she was arrested (and later pleaded guilty) to federal corruption charges. The actual fact is that former Sen. Carl Kruger is in prison right now.  And still NOM takes credit.
