DCCC Wants IRS To Check Freedom's Watch

April 29, 2008

House Races. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee today asked the IRS to investigate whether an organization that supports Republican candidates should lose its tax-exempt status. DCCC Executive Director Brian Wolff said Freedom's Watch "is trying to avoid paying taxes by claiming to be tax exempt, while running campaign ads that benefit a Republican candidate and the [National Republican Campaign Committee]." The group has used ads to raise questions about Democratic state Rep. Don Cazayoux, who is running against former GOP state Rep. Woody Jenkins in a special House election Saturday in Louisiana. Freedom's Watch spokesman Ed Patru said in a statement that the Democratic committee "seems to have an aversion to a robust public policy debate on the important issues of the day. But given the positions on the issues they're forced to defend, I guess it's to be expected that they'd try to muzzle Freedom's Watch's First Amendment rights." He said the ads were issue-based.
