Honest Ibe or Outlaw Ibe?
Why? Because CAIR doesn’t exist. More on this story, and more hot water for the unindicted co-conspirators who continue to enjoy access to and influence over willfully blind media ops and public officials. “Updated with Letter to the IRS: CAIR in violation of IRS 501c3 statute,” from SANE, November 30:
One of the important discoveries emanating from the lawsuit by former CAIR clients against CAIR for fraud and racketeering is the fact that the law firm prosecuting this lawsuit (Law Offices of David Yerushalmi) discovered that CAIR’s corporate charter in the District of Columbia had been revoked as of September 8, 2008. That means pursuant to DC law that the only thing CAIR can do is engage in those necessary acts to dissolve the corporation and to distribute its assets (and to defend itself in litigation for fraud and racketeering).
But it also means per the IRS code, that CAIR is no longer a valid 501c3 tax exempt organization because it is no longer a valid organization (see here).
Here is what we know from the attached pdf files (go to this entry’s unique web page to download):
The Council on American-Islamic Relations, Inc. was legally formed on September 15, 1994.
On June 15, 2007, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, Inc. changed its name to the Council on American-Islamic Relations Action Network, Inc. (Our research indicates that this was done when CAIR sought to convert from a 501c4 lobby group to a 501c3 “non-lobby” group. See, e.g., the most recent available 990 of the organization for the year 2006, also attached above [here].)
In any event, on September 8, 2008, the Council on American-Islamic Relations Action Network, Inc.’s corporate certificate and articles of incorporation were revoked by the DC Corporations Division for failure to make the necessary filings.
The same fate befell CAIR Foundation, Inc., which was originally created to be the 501c3-arm of CAIR.
That corporation (CAIR Foundation, Inc.) was created February 15, 2005.
Corporate status revoked September 8, 2008.
We understand from very reliable sources (see attached letter from David Yerushalmi to IRS [here]) that this information has been forwarded to the D.C. office of the IRS. We await word on any investigation and final disposition.
By the by, every act by CAIR that is not one toward dissolution is a misdemeanor in the District of Columbia (D.C. Code Â§ 29-301.87). That means its 14th Annual Dinner was illegal; it means its website is illegal; it means that anyone who contributes money after September 8, 2008 thinking CAIR is a legitimate 501c3 organization has been defrauded (truth be told, the fraud began long ago but it is now quite patently a fraud).
