Gay Group Defends Failed Effort to Block Maryland Gambling Vote

Task Force has declined to reveal who paid for mailers.

Following the Maryland legislature's vote to put Gov. Martin O'Malley's gambling expansion plan on the ballot this November, legislation signed by the governor today, the National Gay & Lesbian Task Force — which sent a mailer to Maryland Democrats urging them to oppose the legislative action — released a statement this afternoon regarding the efforts.

The statement, published a week after the mailing was delivered and after the vote the group had been attempting to influence had passed, was posted on the organization's blog today.
