  1. unless the non profit specifically campaigned for or endorsed a specific candidate or party, im not sure there is anything the irs can do to them….its issue based

    this is how right wing churches get around tax law too

    they campaign for issues…like going around talking about abortion

        1. I wrote this in 2008:

          Shore’s other website, Radical Islam, featured an editorial endorsing McCain for president. When an enterprising reporter pointed this out to Clarion’s PR flack, he was ‘appalled’ and promised it would be removed. But before he did, the reporter did us the favor of quoting it:

          The article discusses both candidates and concludes:

          McCain’s policies seek to confront radical Islamic extremism and terrorism and roll it back while Obama’s, although intending to do the same, could in fact make the situation facing the West even worse.”

          Ross said the article “crossed the line” into an endorsement of sorts and would be taken down. He added he had not been aware of the article on the site, which he said will be officially launched next week.

          “I was completely appalled and taken by surprise at the article … put on our Web site. It will be taken down immediately,” Ross said. “If I had seen that article, it would never have gone up.”

    MY COMMENT: Don’t “bet the farm” on it!
