USA Religious Right funds Vote No

According to an article in The Herald headlined “US funding for ‘no’ vote”, one of the core groups behind the referendum and Vote No campaign has received over $1m in funding from a conservative American religious group.  Funding has increased recently to over $200,000 per year.

Focus on the Family’s US spokesman Gary Schneeberger said his organisation involved itself in political debate: “We absolutely do – and certainly in the United States we have advanced Biblical values in the public square, without question.”

Are we allowing foreign political interests to meddle in New Zealand’s electoral process?  If so that’s very scary!
