The group trying to repeal Maryland's new same-sex marriage law filed more than enough signatures to trigger a referendum, but their finances looked far less impressive.
The Maryland Marriage Alliance raised a mere $5,000 in the past month -- and owes $88,000 to various vendors. The biggest unpaid bill, $74,000, is to MDPetitions.com, the outfit run by Del. Neil Parrott, a Washington County Republican. The group also owes about $5,000 in legal fees.
