News Bad News for Seattle Storm Fans?

A tipster says Tom Ward, one of the new co-owners of the Seattle Sonics/Storm contributed $100,000 to a 527 called Americans United to Preserve Marriage.
(Yikes. Sounds like one of those Citizens Councils from Mississippi in the 1950s that was fighting to preserve the tradition of segregation.)
The conservative 527 doled out $1,056,962 in the 2004 election cycle and $162,322 in the 2006 cycle.
I have not confirmed Ward’s donation to the group yet.
Ward also contributed $1,000 to Bill Spadea, a GOP candidate in New Jersey for U.S. Congress in 2004.
I’ll do some more reporting on this tomorrow.
