Joe Arpaio Birther Club Hit With IRS Complaint Pegging "Investigator" Mike Zullo

Categories: Birthers (sigh)

At least one person doesn't think this is "charity" work.
Believe it or not, someone out there doesn't believe Sheriff Joe Arpaio's Cold Case Posse/birther club qualifies as a "charity."

A complaint to that effect was filed with the Internal Revenue Service a few weeks ago, which is referenced through the Fogbow's extensive library of information on Arpaio's "investigation" into President Obama's birth certificate.

The identity of the accuser is redacted, but the complaint pegs "investigator" Mike Zullo with accusations of using the so-called "charity" for political purposes, and with the intent to turn a profit.

According to the Arizona Corporation Commission's rules, you can't run a charity with the purpose of "carrying on of propaganda," among other things, and the IRS says the type of charity that the posse claims to be can't just "[participate or intervene], directly or indirectly, in any political campaign on behalf of or in opposition to any candidate for public office."

For those who have followed the actions of the posse, it probably seems like that's exactly what it's doing.

Whoever filed the complaint claims the posse is in direct opposition to the campaign of President Obama -- and is very heavily tied to tea party activists -- and points to the evidence that people are profiting off the posse.

The person who filed the complaint probably thinks people are profiting from the posse because conspiracy theorist Jerome Corsi said so. He told Channel 3 that he and Zullo are selling an e-book online about the Cold Case Posse's "investigation" online, and they're splitting the profits.

On top of that, the entire "investigation" is a sham, so that probably won't help the posse's case.

Zullo's listed as the chief officer of the posse, so the complaint points to him and his failure to keep the Cold Case Posse legitimate as a "charity."

The complaint asks to revoke the posse's status as a charity -- which could increase the visibility of the financial numbers in the future -- and suggests a series of penalty taxes the IRS could impose if it investigates and eventually agrees with the complaint's allegations.

Another document from the IRS shows that it has received the complaint, and it's being "considered."

Clearly Stump300 (Melvin) and brennans.ca (Curtis) are one and the same.  Notice how Curtis has been arguing all day until Melvin came along and now Curtis is nowhere to be seen.  

 

Neither one answered the questions posed.

 

Cowards... both of him.  What a sad sack of crap on the "birther" side.

Good point ... "faithkills"!  I would love the opportunity to get to court.  Then we can present all of the evidence!  That aside, Mike will not fail.  We aree 20 million strong now and growing. Obama has already lost, he is just too stupid to know it yet.  We will donate whatever it takes to slam the IRS down.  We stopped the FDA going after Dr. Burzynski for his cancer cure, and we will stop these clowns too!

 @brennans.ca Ok, I will continue to feed the Troll.

 

Since you can't argue with facts, we can take your clown car out for a spin.  So, I will ask you again:

 

First of all, show me where I have made posts that are "protecting Obama".  The fact that I am happy that the Cold Case Posse got busted for fraudulent activity has nothing to do with Obama.  It has to do with Arpaio and his media-whoring and his waste of tax payer money (across the board - not just with the birth certificate "investigation") and putting the extremists of the Tea Baggers on notice (again).

 

Second, again, let's assume you are right and Obama's birth certificate is a forgery.  Answer the question I asked you before:  Now, what are you going to do about it?  Turn the calendar back 3 1/2 years?  This issue wasn't resolved in the summer of 2008 so I don't see what you hope to accomplish now.  His four year term is nearing an end.

 

Oh - wait.  Yes, I do know.  You are scared shitless that Obama is going to win in November and you're trying to get his name off the ballot.  Ah!  I see the method to your madness.

 

Well, good luck with that.  It would have been more effective to run a decent Republican against him.

 

Instead of wasting your life out here calling me a zombie, why don't you spend some time calling your party headquarters and telling them what you want in a candidate that can actually win an election?

 @brennans.ca Also, I think it's funny that you say "everyone can see through it".  It appears you and I are the only ones here, where, by the way, I have been posting for years and mostly about Arpaio and Pearce and Brewer.  Sadly, I don't really have much to say about Obama.  Now, you, on the other hand, show up yesterday and start shilling about what you claim to "know" about me and insult my intelligence with comments like "move out of your mom's basement" and think you are gaining credibility?  Anyone who knows me knows that I moved out of my mom's basement in 1976 and have been gainfully employed since 1973.  Now, you, on the other hand, seem to have plenty of time to investigate Obama's birth certificate independently, which suggests that YOU are the one who lives in your mom's basement and YOU are the one who has too much time on your hands.  I am simply enjoying setting off your little implosions, in between laundry, dishes, and scrubbing my toilets.  It's so much funny to make the piglets squeal.

 @brennans.ca You're not too bright, are you?  We can again pretend for a moment that your ASSUMPTION is correct.  And now you are saying that I am "busted" for exercising my right to vote for the candidate of my choice (along with nearly 69,500,000 US Citizens who voted for Obama)?  Rather anti-American of you!

 

Since clearly, you didn't vote for Obama, then you must have voted for that RINO McCain and his neurotic side-kick Palin.  Shall I say that you're "busted" for joining millions of Americans in exercising your right to vote?

 

If you must know, I voted for Nader/Gonzalez in 2008.  I will most likely vote the Johnson/Gray ticket this November.

 

Now, back to the topic at hand.  The IRS complaint alleges that the Cold Case Posse is violating the rules of a non-profit organization because of two primary things:  it is a party to political activism and there are parties involved who are profiting from the activities in which they are engaged.

 

Your political SCREECHING AND YELLING AND SHILLING AND CHILDISH RANTS AND SPINNING IN CIRCLES AND DIVERTING ATTENTION FROM THE TRUTH AND NAME CALLING clearly bolsters the allegation that there is political motivation behind the activity of looking into the validity or lack thereof of Obama's birth certificate (as well as bolstering the allegation that you have run out of your prozac).  When raving lunatics such as yourself go on internet rampages like so many suicide bombers, you kind of highlight the worst of the worst in politics.  So, I think, based on your posts, the complaintant's suggestion that the CCP is acting as a PAC is most likely TRUE.

 

Corsi was televised stating that he was selling the book.  This is a form of profit.  What he does with the money once it is received is irrelevant.  Furthermore, the MCSO deputy that went along on the Hawaii junket profited.  He received a tax-payer funded all expense paid trip for 11 days, plus salary and overtime, worth nearly $10,000.  That's a nice bonus for a lowly deputy, isn't it?

 

And how dare you scream that there was no tax payer money spent on this investigation and then tell ME that I need to get "informed" in the same post?  Next thing you know, you'll be telling me the earth is flat...

 

Now - argue FACTS or shut the fuck up because no one gives a rat's ass about your opinion or your assumptions or your political bias.  Nimrod.

 @brennans.ca Well, if you're not a tea bagger, than you're a loony birther, which is worse.  Yes, Arpaio has spent almost $10,000 of tax payer money (so far).  Also, as long as his attention is on playing to the tin foil hat club at WND, he is not paying attention to Maricopa County.  (Come to think of it, that could be a good thing...)

 

Also, I'll point out to you that my comments are almost always about LOCAL politics or non-political articles.  I don't like Obama OR Romney and I wish both parties would give us better options.  I do not participate in the national political debate online, so you have no idea how I voted in the past or how I will vote in November, so to project your idiotic ramblings as you do is extremely ignorant and childish.

 

Finally, I am probably far more informed than you are on things that MATTER.   Let's assume for an irrational moment that you are correct and that Obama's birth certificate is a forgery.  What are you going to do about it now?  Turn the calendar back 3 1/2 years?  You waste your few brain cells screeching about conspiracy theories and fabricating reasons to toss around baseless insults.  This speaks volumes about your character.  Therefore, I am proud that you dislike my comments.  It affirms my sanity and integrity.

 @wherewasi 1st, I'm not a "tea-bagger" (fail) 2nd Arpaio never spent any tax money investigating Obummer (fail). 3rd, You don't believe the birth certificate is a forgery.....based on WHAT investigating of your OWN?? (fail). 4th if Obummer were legit, WHY did he delay showing his paperwork for so long, and WHY did he spend MILLIONS to cover his school records, etc, etc. UNLESS HE HAS SOMETHING TO HIDE??  I think that you ObommaZombie LOONIES who protect this man are IGNORANT losers with nothing better to do.  You probably voted for him the first time around and are now EMBARRASSED to vote for anyone else because now you look STUPID.

 @wherewasi We told the FDA that the court hearing for Burzynski that was to held on April 14th, would be attended by one million of us.  We would not come to the Texas Medical board to hear the hearing, but rather to through out the USFDA.  We did a lot of background work and finally the Texas Medica board saw the light.  They dropped their case again Dr. Burzynski.

 @wherewasi Your Liberal tactics no longer work Yawn....   If you were so inclined, you could go to Quantcast.com and do some research.  The numbers that support getting rid of this disease you call "Obama" or Soetoro or whatever... is easily 20 million.  But Liberals don't like facts, so you just toss out ad hominem attacks. Well that isn't working.  Obama continues to slide.  The birth cert issue is a slam dunk.  I analysed it myself on April 28th. I'm 35 years in Info technology.  I knew immediately it was a forgery.  The real question is - how did we let you communists get so far without beating you back.  We'll have to pay closer attention in the future I think.

 @faithkills  You're as much of an idiot as Arpaio is.  An IRS complaint has nothing to do with determining whether or not there is "proof" of whether or not the birth certificate is authentic.  It has to do with fraudulently using a tax exempt organization to pursue political activities.  It will determine whether they are following the rules for the use of funds donated to "non-profit organization" and if you were smart enough to read the complaint, you would know that they do NOT pass the smell test.

I don't know a lot about charitable donations and tax law, but I would guess that Arpaio's attempt to cover the expenses of the deputy he sent to Hawaii with donations made to a non-profit to pay for salary and over-time for an MCSO employee who was allegedly On Duty might create a bit of a bunching of Uncle Sam's drawers.
