National Organization for Marriage (NOM) 2007 Tax Return (Form 990)

National Organization for Marriage Inc. Tax Return for the 2007 calendar year (beginning June 1 and ending December 31).

Note the $166K paid to Common Sense America, a 501(c)(4) chaired by NOM's executive director, Brian Brown.

Common Sense America's address is listed as a PO Box in this Form 990. An online search quickly turns up a familiar street address:

20 Nassau St, Princeton, New Jersey.

Update: NOM's 2008 return is now available here.

Some background on the activities of Common Sense America in New Jersey in 2007: here.
To date, [Common Sense America] has not disclosed their Board of Directors, how they are funded, or how they are spending their financial resources ...

Now I'm all keen to do a side-by-side comparison of CSA's and NOM's 2007 returns.

But until CSA's return from that year becomes available, the $166K listed in NOM's return raises more questions than it answers.

Meanwhile, Matt Algren flags another discrepancy.

Wow, they're keeping Lisa Webb pretty busy over there.


Sheesh, how did I forget about this photo?

With apologies to Tolkien fans ...
