There Is a God! Porno Pete LaBarbera and Hate Group AFTAH Loses Its IRS Tax Exempt Status!

 Ex-Gay Watch has reported that the IRS  has revoked the tax-exempt status of Porno Pete LaBarbera’s Americans for Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH)  on 5/10/2010 (PDF). The reasons?  A “failure to file a Form 990, 990-EZ, 990-N, or 990-PF for 3 consecutive years.”  These forms are required of all legitimate non-profit organizations for review by the IRS and the public which Peter LaBarbera’s certainly is not.

“While the current incarnation of AFTAH appears to have been active since 2006, we found only one form 990-EZ on file — for the year 2009 (PDF).  In this, total receipts are listed as $110.000, out of which Peter LaBarbera received a salary of $75,000.  For perspective, this is approximately the same salary plus benefits claimed by Exodus president Alan Chambers.  Exodus lists eleven employees and a million dollar budget.”

Of course even 3 months after losing its IRS exempt status (which Porno Pete has been hiding to the public) LaBarbera still has  AFTAH’s “about” page  CLAIMING  that donations are tax-exempt.

It couldn’t happen to douchier hate grifter.

SUCK IT PETEY!

  1. I think I’m going to love it when people who donated to his cause bitch and moan when they get audited by the IRS for claiming a exemption for donating to an organization that’s not even a non-profit. He doesn’t even care about his supporters. What an ass.

What do you think?
