Group turns over donor list from gay marriage fight in Maine

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) – The National Organization for Marriage has revealed the list of donors who contributed to its effort to defeat the state’s gay marriage law in 2009.

The anti-gay marriage group fought to shield its donor list but submitted the report, dated Friday, after the Maine supreme court this month rejected a move to further delay its release.

The financial disclosure filed with the Maine Commission on Governmental Ethics and Election Practices indicates the biggest donor, at $1.25 million, was Sean Fieler, a hedge fund president from New Jersey. A Pennsylvania physician and a San Diego businessman donated $300,000 apiece.

The gay marriage law was overturned by the 2009 referendum and never went into effect, but Maine voters returned to the ballot box to legalize same-sex marriage in 2012.
