The IRS Scandal, Day 880

IRS Logo 2Ben Carson For President 2016, IRS: Take Away Muslim Group’s Tax-Exempt Status:

The Council on Islamic-American Relations (CAIR), a U.S. Muslim group, recently demanded that I withdraw as candidate for the 2016 presidential race. By doing so, the organization has brazenly violated IRS rules prohibiting tax-exempt nonprofits like CAIR to intervene in a political campaign on behalf of—or in opposition to—a candidate. (Click video link to witness the violation.)

This is not the first time that CAIR has disrespected U.S. laws or America. It has previously lost its tax-exempt status by failing to file federal taxes three years in a row. It had also been named by federal prosecutors as an unindicted co-conspirator in a criminal conspiracy to funnel money to Hamas, a terrorist organization.

The IRS should immediately revoke CAIR’s tax-exempt status. Under the Obama administration, the IRS has systematically targeted conservative nonprofit groups for politically motivated audits and harassment. The agency should now properly do its job and punish the real violators of America’s laws and regulations.

Sign this petition to demand that the IRS revoke CAIR’s nonprofit tax-exempt status.

CAIR is a dastardly group but I don't support taking away their tax exempt status.

This does illustrate nicely though how everything the Democrats say about nonprofits and politics is BS. Democrats have zero issues with nonprofits engaging in activism or politics as long as they support Democrats, like CAIR does.
