Politifact Oregon: Rep. Blumenauer's Tax-Exempt Claim Was "False"

 

Our Chairman John Eastman told Rep. Blumenauer during his testimony before Congress that the congressman's claim was "preposterous" that groups such as NOM should not be considered a social welfare group. Politifact Oregon agrees with our Chairman and rated Rep. Bluemenauer's claim false:

"Blumenauer said that "the statute a hundred years ago said that they were prohibited."  There was no prohibition in the 1913 Act. The 1913 Act was silent on political activity, for whatever reasons. We rate his statement False."
