North Carolina: NOM Runs LYING Ad Against Kay Hagen

The virulently anti-gay is dumping money into North Carolina’s Senate race, but in doing so NOM is literally LYING by rewriting history and how the government works.

It’s important to note that although NOM would like you think differently, Sen. Kay Hagen did not “handpick” the judge who ruled in favor of marriage equality bringing the freedom to marry to the state.

As a matter of fact, Judge Coburn was UNANIMOUSLY confirmed by the Senate. And that includes the vote from Hagen’s fellow NC Senator Richard Burr (R).

Oh – and senators don’t “handpick” any judge. Judges are nominated by the President and confirmed by the Senate.

But NOM hopes their ilk doesn’t know how history or the government works.

Sen. Kay Hagen supports marriage equality

Sen. Kay Hagen of North Carolina has come out in favor of marriage equality:

“I know there are strong feelings on both sides, and I have a great deal of respect for their opinions, but after much thought and prayer on my part this is where I am today.

“I know all our families do not look alike. We all want the same thing for our families. We want happiness, we want health, prosperity, a bright future for our children and grandchildren. After conversations I’ve had with family members, with people I go to church with and with North Carolinians from all walks of life, I’ve come to my own personal conclusion that we should not tell people who they can love, or who they can marry. It’s time to move forward with this issue.”
