    Who knew the L. Ron Hubbard House in Washington was open for parties?
    Actress and Scientologist Jenna Elfman (Darma of Darma & Greg) and Greg Mitchell of The Mitchell Firm, which lobbies for the Church of Scientology, are throwing a party Thursday at the restored townhouse near Dupont Circle where Hubbard got his start and held the first Scientology wedding.
    It is a time for us to thank you for your hard work and dedication, celebrate our successes, and look ahead to many shared wins in 2007! the invitation reads.

    Are there any records of people in public office having received gifts, funds, assistance from The Mitchell Firm?

    Lobbying is legalised bribery/influence peddling, is it not?

    Does any other church have Washington lobbyists? Or do they all, nowadays?

  37. ITS ALIVE!!

    I've been investigating into scilon DC lobbying for quite a while now and I came across that churches and religious organizations may not endorse political canidates, but they can lobby the fuck out of them.

    That may sound unfair however, there are 2 types of tests to determine said groups are abusing this liberty and that is the Substantial Part Test and the Expenditures Test.

    Churches are not eligible for the Expenditures Test, therefore the Substantial Part Test is the only available one and several factors such as lobbying time spent and funds spent determine if the lobbying spending is substantial.

    Now $30,000 doesn't look too substantial but they have been lobbying since 2008, which relates to this:

    Now the question here is how much lobbying is excessive lobbying and if their lobbying spending does indeed qualify as substantial.

    The only way to find out for now is to get hold of a copy of their Form 990 which requires all tax exempt organizations to fill out when more than $25,000 is spent for lobbying on legislation.

    You won't find it online for DC since it looks like they haven't released one to the sites or none at all.


    tl;dr:
    I did research but I need further smart people help.
    All the other dumb people can suck my ass.

    They can do that?

    I thought that:

    Although that does talk about releasing the forms to anyone who walks into the shop.

  39. Apparently they either haven't released online and a copy of it is up for grabs or they haven't filled one out and somehow the IRS didn't even notice.

    For now I have some difficulty as to how to ask the IRS if they filled the 990 out or not and if it is considered excessive lobbying since it probably violates privacy policy.
