Maybe the IRS should have been investigating those non-profits a little harder for political activity...

No farking shiat.

Wow, just wow.

Such a vile little scam.

Steal stories and pictures from other legitimate charities to sell the idea you are a real charity.

Get lots of people to send $24.99 so these scam artists can allegedly send care packages off to troops serving overseas.

Use only donated things and use volunteers to put those inside the "care packages".

Send maybe a few off to some troops at some point and then claim to have delivered "315 tons" of such goods knowing full well that number is bullshiat but that it can never be proven one way or another.

Funnel millions of dollars directly into the pockets of the people running the scam.

Man, I though Hannity was a total POS for doing what he did to make bank from his fake charity scam but he was an amateur compared to these guys. Who are these pros?

Move America Forward calls itself the nation's "largest grassroots pro-troop organization," and has recruited a bevy of Republican luminaries, including former Presidents  George HW Bush, George W Bush and and former Vice President Dick Cheney...

Ah there we go, big league scammers are big league.

All the people who donated to this scam can have a nice little talk about it over the collection plate at church.

Of course. Now they can cry political persecution if anyone dares call them on their bullshiat.

This was one of my evil living in a mountain guy plans to leech poor GOP voters of their disposable cash too.

Setup vaguely jesus themed, descent is the highest form of patriotic, love the troops and rally for them to do jesusy things for real patriot jesus people pac.

Then make sure to pump it in adverts right here on Fark, the land of obnoxious right wing troll banner adverts.

Step 3: profit

Fat chance. After spending oodles of time demonizing IRS agents for daring to do their jobs, the House then gutted their budget specifically to prevent them from doing their jobs.

Yet another hurdle removed from the path to an America ruled by a pure corporatocracy.

Yeah I was wondering what happened with the whole Hannity charity concert scam. Even conservatives were publicly pissed about that one but it just fell under the radar.

This is same basic scam that was featured in yesterday's thread on Steve Latourette article

It's a tax on gullibilty, enabled by the lack of regulations on charities

Would be very easy to require all charities to publicize on their website, an exact breakdown of how each dollar is spent.

Iraq was a scam to leech money off of the American taxpayer, so maybe this was nice little way to get a little sumn off of Afghanistan too.

It may be, but I don't care for who is getting subsidized by it.
 
2014-08-05 06:48:53 PM
I thought that funneling money into the pockets of friends and family was the primary purpose of all political charities and political action committees.

My assumption has always been that organizations like the "Dick Morris Charity for Protection from Robots" gave half of its money to "Dick Morris Rent Boy's Management Consulting, LLC", and the other half to the "Dick Morris PAC for Starving Baby Ocelots", which in turn gave all of its money to the "Dick Morris Real Estate Trust for Renting a Spare Bedroom to Charities as Overpriced Office Space."

But maybe I'm just cynical.

2014-08-05 06:56:53 PM
Honestly though, can we not blame Obama for some of this? If he wasn't yanking all the support structures out from under our brave men and women who serve, then there wouldn't be a need for so many charities to make up the difference? I mean.. he's gotta be tied to this in some way, and if he's not, then maybe this is yet another distraction so we don't focus on Benghazi or audit the Fed or finally figure out who killed Vince Foster.

Mega-church tithers and people that give to this type of group are truly those easily parted with their money. Not only are they fools, they are emotionally malleable fools who express their feelings with money. It's as if PT Barnum had a dream come true and all the suckers were conveniently grouped together for easy shearing.

Well, looks like I found a nice way to fund my retirement. Set up some bullshiat charity,then send mailings to "the villages" down in florida.

As long as you say it's for the troops, you're good to go.Do some cutting and pasting to get your favorite right wing nutjob to "endorse" you.

I mean really, how hard can this be? As long as you don't get greedy, you'll be fine. Offshore bank account, vpn for your website, ect.

You do one good professional looking mailing, take the money and vamoose!

Really it should be a requirement of having charity status, maybe scaled based on the the amount of money changing hands.

Something along these lines maybe:
