Washington, D.C. — The following should be attributed to Brian Brown, president of the National Organization for Marriage (NOM).

"The National Organization for Marriage made known to the Board its serious concerns about the possible prejudice against NOM by the Executive Director and Legal Counsel. The Board made a decision which dismissed NOM's concerns, but at the same time, the Board reaffirmed to NOM that it has not made a determination in any manner whatsoever that NOM has violated Iowa law, contrary to previous press reports. The Board has confirmed that it has no facts to support such a finding and that it is incumbent upon the Board to now gather the facts that will inform the Board whether a violation has occurred. NOM will continue to fully cooperate with the Board to furnish the evidence which will clearly demonstrate that no violation of the law occurred. NOM takes very seriously its legal compliance obligations and NOM is confident that once the Board reviews the facts and the evidence, this frivolous complaint will be dismissed."
