Leftist Group Could Lose Nonprofit Status

The Women’s March organization may have violated IRS rules for qualifying as a non-profit entity. The Daily Caller reports:

Left-wing nonprofit groups that orchestrated disruptions during Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation hearings likely violated IRS rules, which can result in their loss of tax-exempt status, according to an investigation by The Daily Caller News Foundation.

TheDCNF listened in on a conference call Monday where organizers for three groups behind the protests called on activists to continue their “civil disobedience” as part of their efforts to “shut down” Monday’s upcoming confirmation proceedings.

These activist organizations — which include Women’s March, the Center for Popular Democracy and Housing Works — provided cash for the post-and-forfeits to protesters who didn’t show up with their own money before they faced arrest for their conduct, CPD Action national field organizer Darius Gordon and Housing Works national advocacy coordinator Paul Davis both said on Monday’s call.

Post-and-forfeit payments are small cash sums paid to resolve low-level misdemeanor crimes and avoid jail time.

Will the IRS enforce the law as it is written, instead of prosecuting Tea Party groups?
