An item about the same-sex marriage issue that was under-reported in Maine during the campaign was S. Donald Sussman's donation. In brief references, the Bangor Daily News and a few others reported that Sussman raised $500,000 for the "No on 1" campaign.
That's a huge chunk of cash by any standard, let alone Maine's, so why did it get such subdued coverage in the media? Mega donations are always of interest and when it comes to donors to political causes, locally and nationally, few have deeper pockets than Donald Sussman.
Why, then, hasn't Sussman become a household name?
