QUESTION: addresses of DOMA supporters

question / pregunta: 

I'm looking for the amount of money spent lobbying in support of the Defense of Marriage Act and the addresses of major players in the effort to pass the act and the name of a person to whom one would address such a letter. I am also looking for names & addresses for big-name/celebrity supporters of Occupy Boston. Background: on Jan. 30 the Creative Arts and Subversive Action (CASA) Working Group of Occupy Boston will be hosting a Valentine making workshop where individuals will make Valentines for "the Beloved Opposition" and some of our supporters. I'd like to give the artists just a little information of a financial nature with which to work and of course addresses of where to send the Valentines. I hope this is description is specific enough for your purposes and I would be twinkle fingers happy if Radical Reference would like to include their own suggestions (with the appropriate information) for this workshop. It doesn't have to be on DOMA, it does have to an a financial angle, and some connection to love, lust, etc....(after thought) Some data to contrast with the amount of money spent lobbying for DOMA would be great too....maybe something like....amount of money spent on pre-natal care....or fighting domestic violence. Thanks.
