No "National Organization for Marriage" contribution figures?

I got my numbers strictly from this article. The article did not report money from the national organization for marriage.

Are they based outside of California?

Do you have figures from them, or others?

The Cali Sec of State keeps tabs on Prop 8 contributions (with downloadable Excel worksheets no less).

I shoulda checked there before I opened my big mouth and got it wrong ... NOM registered themselves in CA.
