MoveOn.org has been quite critical of George W. Bush throughout the years, yet has retained it's 501c4 status.






MoveOn.org is actually a couple of organizations. One is a PAC and one is a 501(c)4. The former is allowed to directly campaign.

So is it your contention that the 501(c)4 tax-exempt portion of MoveOn.org has never been critical of George W. Bush?

Your analogy is poor because the football example is indicative of the referees trying to "right" a bad law.


quote:

Your analogy would be perfect if the referees would have continuously chosen not to fix the problem for A&M, but then decided to "fix" the problem for Alabama...because they are Alabama fans.


Actually I should have added the part in my analogy that the refs were Alabama fans as an example to make it more than them just righting a bad rule, that they were taking it a step further by showing bias. You are correct, I failed to add that point.

strange...we paid the church to let us park in the parking lot because there wasn't enough student parking. And of course they didn't pay taxes on that money either....
If the church didn't pay tax on the unrelated business income of renting space in its parking lot, then it was breaking the law. The income from renting parking space had no connection with the church's charitable function, and it would be subject to tax.

LINK
Your link doesn't say anything about targeting "Pro-Obama" groups. It says they flagged progressive groups, which are sometimes anti-Obama, as well.

Even so, as we all know, the progressive groups did end up getting approved while conservative groups got delayed or left in limbo.
