The Mormon Church owned Media, primarily KSL and the Deseret News have placed the Church’s 501C3 Status in Jeopardy. Under IRS Code 501C3:
Under the Internal Revenue Code, all section 501(c)(3) organizations are absolutely prohibited from directly or indirectly participating in, or intervening in, any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for elective public office. Contributions to political campaign funds or public statements of position (verbal or written) made on behalf of the organization in favor of or in opposition to any candidate for public office clearly violate the prohibition against political campaign activity. Violating this prohibition may result in denial or revocation of tax-exempt status and the imposition of certain excise taxes.
…voter education or registration activities with evidence of bias that (a) would favor one candidate over another; (b) oppose a candidate in some manner; or (c) have the effect of favoring a candidate or group of candidates, will constitute prohibited participation or intervention.
The Mormon Church, through its media, clearly campaigned against Donald Trump and showed a clear bias towards Hillary Clinton. This is evidenced by the fact that almost all articles were slanted against Donald Trump and towards Clinton.
To aggravate matters, Keith McMullin, who presides over Deseret Management as an LDS General Authority, permitted both Deseret News and KSL.com to promote the candidacy of Evan McMullin, a close relative.
The Trump Attorney General, will undoubtedly be taking a close look at these glaring violations once Donald Trump takes office. This will likely lead to subpoenas of Mormon Church leaders communications with McMullin via email or text. The end result very likely could lead to a revocation of the Church’s tax exempt status.
With $40 billion in Assets, this would lead to a massive windfall estimated at over 20 billion dollars for the US Treasury. Money the Trump Administration could use to build the Wall between the United States and Mexico.
Mitt Romney’s influence over the Mormon Church will prove to be more costly than its worth. He has already alienated Russia, which has since banned Mormon missionaries, and his feud with President Elect Trump places all of Mormondom in jeopardy. Mormons need to contact their Church Leaders and put an end to the Romneyite influence in their Church.
Otherwise they will undoubtedly pay an exorbitant price.
