Ben Smith at Politico reports:
The Council on American-Islamic Relations has lost its nonprofit status, according to the Internal Revenue Service.
The civil rights group, long accused of ties to radical Islam, is on a list of 275,000 organizations who have not filed the requisite paperwork with the IRS to maintain nonprofit status. Tax law requires annual disclosure of assets, expenditures and salaries for 501(c) nonprofits. Both CAIR and sister organization CAIR Foundation have lost their status.
CAIR chief Ibrahim Hooper is now claiming that it’s all a mistake by the IRS. I guess we’ll see if the IRS admits fault next week.
