Being C.A.R.E.-less about in kind donations

Yup, been busy, perhaps I’ll blog some of it at a later date.

Meanwhile, here’s a brief note that we can add to the growing pile of C.A.R.E. abominations.


Just go read B.B. Church’s latest piece-  C.A.R.E. Pays for Play?

Also be sure to note, (particularly in light of in-kind donations and potentially jeopardizing an organizational tax status, which Ron summarizes here-)

This is because this “celebration” is a thinly disguised fundraiser for Assemblywoman Fiona Ma, (“make the checks out to Fiona2010”) and C.A.R.E. could jeopardize its 501(c)4 status if it donated money or in-kind resources directly to a candidate.

(Emphasis added- BLC)

that the RSVPs go to (link goes to the PDF copy of the invite B.B. has up.) That would be a C.A.R.E organizational e-mail address, not an individual member’s personal e-mail address.

<sarcasm on>

Damn good thing C.A.R.E. itself wouldn’t be caught dead organizing a fundraising event for the California Assembly member who introduced their (disastrous) AB 372, right?… Right?

Nah, certainly not!

<sarcasm off>
