Yesterday the New York Times released this article detailing the IRS’s look into the private right-wing group the Friends of Abe. The group keeps its member list and activities under lock and key and is currently applying for non-profit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) status.
Applying for such a status requires that your group does not involve itself in partisan political election support and the IRS is investigating the Friends of Abe on suspicions that the group in fact does just that.
Our forthcoming Feral House release Republican Party Animal gives an unprecedented behind-the-scenes view of Friends of Abe and contains a wealth of information that would interest the IRS. It turns out they are involved in partisan political activities and so much more.
Coming May 2014, this book will be the first-ever exposé of the secretive Hollywood far-right underground.
