Christine O'Donnell Fights Back

Weeks after Christine O'Donnell U.S. Attorney's Office dismissed a politically motivated and fraudulent lawsuit stating Christine misused campaign contributions, she is fighting back.  Today, she announced she has filed a lawsuit asking the Internal Revenue Services to strip Citizens for the Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) of their 501(c)3 tax-exempt status.

Christine O'Donnell, and ChristinePAC attorney Cleta Mitchell appeared on Fox and Friends this morning to kick off the media event surrounding this lawsuit.  The media event is important to inform the public of the abuses by CREW of U.S. tax code, and why their tax status must be revoked.

The basis of this lawsuit is simple. Since CREW misused its own campaign donors funds, and U.S. taxpayers funds due to its tax-exempt status in political campaigns, it violated IRS tax law.  Here's how they fail the litmus test of a true tax-exempt 501(c)3:

  • CREW Director Melanie Sloan, former aide to now VP Joe Biden uses parents''complaint' to file baseless lawsuit against Christine O'Donnell.  Proof complainant is parents of Melanie Sloan here.
  • By filing baseless lawsuit CREW knowingly and willingly misuse state federal resources (FEC, FBI, U.S. Attorney Office) to investigate a fraudulent claim.
  • CREW historically only goes after Republicans (80% vs 20% for Democrats), which proves CREW is politically motivated to derail Republicans.  This partisan behavior violates U.S. tax code for a 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization.
Let's hope justice is served here, and CREW's tax-exempt status is revoked.  In our opinion, the law is the law and CREW overstepped the boundaries of the law.  And now they need to pay the consequences.
