Dear Mr. Brown:
With this week’s court-ordered release of previously classified NOM strategy documents, there are way more questions than answers. I know that you’re one to keep your cards pretty close to the vest and that you aren’t likely to spill the beans on any number of questions, but I’d like to pose a few queries nonetheless.
First, how can you think you’re winning when the American people are so clearly moving toward fairness? You write that “victory is possible, even likely…” Before you get too far ahead of yourself, you should take a look at a few non-partisan public polls (like Gallup for instance) that shows majority support for equal marriage. And don’t forget young people where support is off the charts and nothing indicates that as that cohort ages they’ll suddenly be inclined to reverse their support for marriage.
Where are all of these supposedly unhappy kids of gay parents? I’ve got to be honest, one of the most bizarre parts of these documents was your goal of paying an outreach coordinator to find kids of gay parents to speak on camera. Aside from how patently offensive that is, how’d it turn out? My guess is that you didn’t have a lot of takers?
Does Mitt Romney buy into your strategy of racial division, rebuffing disclosure laws and lying about people of faith? You are clear about your close working relationship with Rick Santorum, but Mitt Romney has also signed your horrendous pledge to fight against equal marriage and investigate your made up harassment. Has Romney signed on to your agenda lock, stock and barrel?
Will you continue to insist that you’re more than just a front for a small cabal of donors? You take great pains to paint yourselves as a large grassroots force but everything suggests the opposite. Five mega-donors make up 88% of your funding.
