Now I'm no expert on civic associations, 501c organizations or tax exempt status stuff, but I don't believe a civic organization can contribute to a political campaign without losing their tax exempt status. Maybe, you can contribute but you have to contribute equally to all candidates? Is there anyone out there who can shed some light on this?
I wonder if the members of the Juniper Park Civic Association voted on these contributions. Either way, it looks like Bobby smells like a lobby!
