Tax-exempt Media Matters hires Clinton advisor as 2016 campaign heats up

American ThinkerLast week, the Democratic party website Media Matters hired long time Clinton family friend and advisor James Carville to write for the site. This is just the latest in a series of moves made by the Democratic party organ to boost the candidacy of Hillary Clinton.

But, as the Washington Examiner points out, Media Matters is a tax exempt organization, prohibited by law from engaging in political activity. The site is run by another Clinton confidante, David Brock, and the website hasn't been shy about defending Mrs. Clinton in this latest scandal over her emails.

It's fine for Democrats to do this, but the IRS will come down on you like a ton of bricks if a conservative organization tries to get a tax exemption for engaging in politics. Rules are for suckers. And the fact-checking organizations are political propaganda anyway. And, oh yes...

The FederalistPhil Kerpen notes on Twitter that PunditFact and PolitiFact are funded by a large and active Clinton Foundation donor and partner, a fact PunditFact conveniently failed to disclose in its defense of the Clinton Foundation.

... also funded by people linked to the Clintons.
