Thank you.
I'm no lawyer, but I don't see a crime.
How did she break the law?

The quoted text above says churches can't do such and such, or they may lose their tax-exempt status.

What did the churches do?

They can't watch a political video?

Did the churches pay for her to do the video?


But in America, white men can kill with impunity - seems that should be a crime, but it is not.

So much for my ability to spot a crime in America.

Thanks for sharing with me.

Love You!

We're in the same boat, however, here's how the news article explains it ...



“[Harris’s] video is unequivocally expressing advocacy, so charities and churches should not be involved in its production or distribution. It would be a violation of the tax code for charities and churches to do so,” said Craig Holman of Public Citizen, a government watchdog group.

Okay, thank you. It says they should not be involved.

Is there evidence they were involved?

It seems the problem is the audience the ad speaks to, churchgoers...


In the message, Harris urges churchgoers to vote for McAuliffe.
“I believe that my friend Terry McAuliffe is the leader Virginia needs at this moment,” Harris tells viewers, touting Democrats' “long track record of getting things done for the people of Virginia.”
Harris adds: “So please, vote after today’s service. And if you cannot vote today, make a plan to go vote.”
It has drawn criticism from legal and ethics experts.
Politicians have long attended Sunday services in key constituent communities in a transparent bid to court congregations. But the playing of a videotaped endorsement goes too far, said Rob Boston, senior adviser at Americans United for Separation of Church and State, and editor of Church & State magazine.

Here’s Why Kamala Didn’t Hesitate to Trust Jussie Smollett


For many progressives, the story was “too good to check”—so they didn’t.

It's been a good while, but this place has always been home. Thankful to be here.
Hi! I'm not as active on this account as I want to be. For one I tend to forget that this site exists until I check my email. Two, I'm currently in the process of building up a fine art site for Oklahoma black and native historical references. The references correlate with another site that will be a storytelling site that has not yet been produced.
Happy to be back and gaining more knowledge!
