Let's Play 'Spot Yes on 1's Lie!'

Can anyone spot the lie below?

If the NO on 1/Protect Marriage Equality campaign knew $5 million was coming from HRC, WE'D KNOW IT!

Maybe they got their numbers wrong. Maybe it was a typo. Maybe they meant to tell the quasi-truth and write $.5 million, but that would still be more than how much HRC really has donated to NO on 1. (HRC has donated roughly $140,000 plus another $80,000 in goods, services and staff time. See NO on 1's contributions report and an article. Thanks HRC!)

Or not.

The hypocrisy is staggering, considering that 60% of the Yes on 1 campaign has been bankrolled by none other than the National Organization for Marriage (NOM), who have said they want to be the anti-marriage equality answer to HRC.

Guess they overshot that goal a bit, you think?
