The National Organization for Marriage is demanding a criminal investigation after The Huffington Post published a copy of the group's private tax form, listing confidential donor information.
The news organization, which published the 2008 form on March 30, claims it obtained the tax return from one of NOM's political opponents, the Human Rights Campaign.
The Human Rights Campaign finally removed all posted references to the un-redacted tax forms after NOM attorneys contacted the group with released proof that the Internal Revenue Service had leaked the information.
"We demand that federal authorities immediately launch an investigation into this crime," NOM president Brian Brown said.
Brown compared the leak to the 1970s Watergate scandal and went on to question whether people within the Obama administration or the HRC were co-conspirators.
HRC president Joe Solmonese co-chairs President Obama's reelection campaign.
Thomas Peters, with the National Organization of Marriage, spoke with CBN News about the illegal leak and its potential connection to President Obama's re-election campaign, on CBN Newswatch, Tuesday, April 17.
