Yesterday, Conservative Belle scooped the entire blogosphere and the mainstream media. Her detective work links the Democratic front-group Media Matters directly with Clinton Staffers Rick Ridder and Craig Hughes.
This is the same Media Matters that claims tax-exempt status as a non-partisan IRS 501(c)(3) organization. Because they are so obviously partisan, many observers believe they are clearly in violation of the tax code.
|...when I did a record search on Media Matters in the business center section of the Colorado SOS's site, I found something curious. They have registered under ID 20061240245 with a statement of foreign entity authority and according to the filing results, their 'registered agent' is listed as Ridder-Braden, Inc. in Denver, CO. Next, I looked up Ridder-Braden, Inc and found who they are (emphasis mine).|
Belle also has concerns that Media Matters may be violating Maryland law.
If attorney Mark Levin is right, It's only a matter of time before Media Matters is shuttered as a "criminal enterprise".
