NY Daily News: NOM Targets "Benedict Arnolds" of the State Senate Who Voted for Gay Marriage


The New York Daily News reports on our first salvo:

The National Organization for Marriage launched the first salvo this morning of its previously-promised $2 million campaign to defeat the seven state Senators who switched their votes to back same-sex marriage.

Mailings are being sent to homes in the district of each senator comparing the lawmaker to the legendary Revolutionary War traitor Benedict Arnold. The group claims it will spend $150,000 on the mailings.

“This is the first step in what will be a sustained, determined effort to make sure the constituents of these cowardly Senators know what they have done,” said Brian Brown, NOM’s president.
