Tobin Presents Political Intervention by Religious Organizations: Right or Wrong? Today at the Ohio Legal Scholarship Workshop

Tobin_1Donald Tobin (Ohio State) presents Political Intervention by Religious Organizations: Right or Wrong? today at the Ohio Legal Scholarship Workshop.  Here is the abstract:

The project exams the election activities of 501(c)(3) organizations, and argues that the prohibition on intervening in a political campaign contained in 501(c)(3) should be strictly enforced. I argue that the use of taxpayer subsidized organizations to promote particular candidates is bad for democracy and places too much power in those organizations. I further argue that the existing framework for regulating political intervention by 501(c)(3)'s is insufficient and suggest an alternative test and an alternative structure for regulating and enforcing the prohibition.
