Watchdog balks at SPLC's tax-exempt status, cites group's air of partisanship
A group favoring limits on immigration said this week it will ask the Internal Revenue Service to investigate the Southern Poverty Law Center and strip the hate-watchdog's tax-exempt status over what it described as illegal political activity undertaken before the Nov. 8 presidential election.
The Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) says its legal affiliate expects to file a tax complaint with the IRS challenging the SPLC's standing as a nonprofit organization.
Dan Stein, president of FAIR, said his immigration reform group plans to provide the IRS with 100 pages' worth of information showing “in laborious detail how the SPLC operates as a campaign operation for one political party and nothing more.”
“The SPLC is deeply invested in promoting mass immigration, bullying political opponents into silence, and is nothing more than a daily smear machine uninterested in the free exchange of ideas. It uses the same ad hominem tactics year in and year out to try to manage political speech in the interests of its own agenda,” Mr. Stein said in a statement that didn't detail the SPLC's purported law-breaking.
“The SPLC is simply not a credible source of accurate or truthful information,” he added, but a “basket of partisan propaganda artists masquerading as public policy advocates.”
FAIR's threat marks only the latest development in a row between the two groups dating back several years.
