Gay Marriage Law Gains National Attention 

A California-based gay rights group has filed a complaint with Maine’s campaign oversight agency against groups pushing for a people’s veto vote in November on Maine’s new gay marriage law. Californians Against Hate founder Fred Karger filed a complaint with the ethics commission asking for an investigation into what he alleges is illegal fundraising reporting. Karger says the groups are contributing to the Stand for Marriage campaign without reporting the names of their donors. The ethics commission is likely to decide whether to order aninvestigation during its October meeting, according to its executive director Jonathan Wayne. Stand for Marriage co-chair Bob Emrich said Wednesday the complaint is bogus and that the groups have been very careful to follow the reporting law. (AP)
