Leading Anti-Gay-Marriage Group Names New Chairman

Thursday, 22 Sep 2011 04:12 PM

 

NEW YORK — A law professor from Southern California has been named as the new chairman of the National Organization for Marriage, one of the most active groups opposed to the legalization of same-sex marriage.

John Eastman, a professor and former dean at Chapman University Law School in Orange, Calif., will replace NOM's co-founder, Maggie Gallagher, who will remain a member of the board while devoting some of her time to finishing a book about the same-sex marriage debate.

Eastman, a former clerk to U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, ran unsuccessfully last year for state attorney general in California, though he did garner support from some tea party activists.

NOM has been a leading player in many of the recent electoral battles nationwide over same-sex marriage.
