USA: Anti Marriage Equality Group Running Out of Money

Protect Marriage LogoAccording to Reuters, Protect Marriage ran a huge shortfall in 2011:

ProtectMarriage.com, the advocacy group defending a California gay marriage ban now under review by the high court, showed a $2 million deficit in its legal fund at the end of 2011 – the third year in a row that expenses exceeded donations, federal tax records show.

Not only that, but they’re $700K short in their fundraising for the US Supreme Court cases:

The 2012 accounts are not yet available. ProtectMarriage.com says it has since covered the 2011 shortfall. However, it is still $700,000 short in fundraising for its Supreme Court costs, according to a ProtectMarriage.com attorney, Andrew Pugno. That message has gone out to donors, with some urgency, as the Supreme Court prepares to hear arguments in March in its first thorough review of same-sex marriage.

Where are the Knights of Columbus when you need them?
