Salt Lake City (AP) - A California gay rights activist has added new allegations to his formal complaint accusing the Mormon Church of understating the financial backing it gave to help pass a gay marriage ban in California.
Fred Karger, founder of Californians Against Hate, says the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints hid its role in establishing the National Organization for Marriage, a New Jersey-based group that opened a California office last year.
Karger filed his supplemental complaint Thursday with the California Fair Political Practices Commission, which already is investigating his earlier allegations against the church.
A spokeswoman says the church did not establish NOM and has already reported the $190,000 of in-kind contributions it made to the ‘Yes on 8’ campaign.
