    Anit gun group takes illegal contributions

    Looks like Gabby Giffords Anti Gun Organization got their collective hands caught in the illegal "cookie jar". Can't really blame her. I don't think she has the mental capacity to do much, she is their "poster child", but her husband and the others who are "using" her should be ashamed and then held to the letter of the law.

    ALL political groups accept questionable or illegal money. Doesn't matter if it is a left group or a right one.

    Nope it does not matter if its a left wing or right wing group. It just happens to be an anti gun group. I for one am glad they got caught....

    So am I.

    But, as the story shows, it made not one bit of difference in their ability to raise funds. The folks "caught" simply wrote personal checks instead.

    And these super-duper PACs are designed around political campaigns and lobbying efforts, in this case seeking direct infringement upon the 2A-protected rights of all citizens. And the IRS and rest of government allows it to occur. So do we, by and large, as citizens. It's a sorry situation all the way around.

    But let's see if this has the IRS investigating their tax free status.

    I'm going to start a new group, "Legal Gun Owners Against Illegal Anti-gun Liberal Nimrods Pimping Gun Control Because They Don't Have Any Other Relevance."

    Do I need to shorten it up a bit???

    Wow. $6.6 million. That's more than the largest autism research charity I can find...

    The only acceptable long-term outcome is to find a cure. We currently spend 1000x more on care than finding a cure.
    It requires, though, people to be occasionally intentionally proactive.

    Just for the record, the headline and this thread title appear to be inaccurate based on the article and the laws cited therein. It wasn't illegal for Gifford's organization to accept the money. It was illegal for the *other* organizations, granted tax exempt status specifically on the condition that they not get involved in political activities, or the funding thereof, to donate the funds to Gifford's PAC.

    The article certainly paints the recipient charity as morally complicit.

    Well let's see, first Kelly gets caught red handed buying one of those nasty "assault rifles" and now he and his wife accepted illegal contributions for their PAC. I don't why we would look at them with a jaundiced eye, do you?

    Hard to imagine tax-free status for any group actively promoting tearing down of the Constitution. How that ever got to be acceptable, lawfully, is beyond me. That the courts allow any such thing frosts me to no end.
