The Devil and Mother Jones
During the hearing of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Financial Services and General Government Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur did us something less than proud with her attack on groups seeking 501(c)(4) tax status. The aging legislator quoted Mother Jones Magazine, the same organization that published the illegally recorded conversation of Senator Mitch McConnell and his staff. The Foundation for National Progress which publishes Mother Jones is registered as a 501(c)(3) meaning it is is technically a public charity. Most churches have the same exempt status. If Kaptur is so intent on finding organizations that abuse the spirit of tax exempt rules she need look no further than Mother Jones.
