NOM Sinks $75K Into Weiner Race

NOM is spending $75,000 in support of Bob Turner, the GOP candidate hoping to replace Rep. Anthony Weiner. NOM doesn't necessarily like Turner, he's just not David Weprin, the state assemblyman who voted to approve same-sex marriage.
The organization disclosed in a filing with the Federal Election Commission on Tuesday that it spent $26,000 on direct-mail advertising in opposition to Mr. Weprin, who voted in favor of the marriage bill, and $19,000 in support of his Republican opponent, Bob Turner, who opposes same-sex marriage. Brian S. Brown, the president of the National Organization for Marriage, said in a telephone interview that the group planned to spend more money, about $30,000, on automated phone calls, additional mailings and get-out-the-vote efforts before the election, scheduled for Tuesday. “David Weprin made a terrible mistake when he voted for same-sex marriage,” Mr. Brown said, “and I think his community is going to hold him accountable.”
Support David Weprin.
