Odd, but I doubt it will effect much. How many GOTV organisations build houses?

But then I read the section itself and it's even more odd. For example FOR PROFIT groups are not prohibited from GOTV activities. I guess that's to allow the Rebublicans to keep doing it?


"(2) ADDITIONAL REQUIREMENTS FOR RECIPI-
ENTS OTHER THAN FOR-PROFIT ENTITIES.—The requirements under this paragraph with respect to any organization, agency, or entity that is not a for-profit entity or a government agency or authority are that the organization, agency, or entity--"

And the organisation can't have any relation at all with any group that has ever done GOTV (within the last year):

"(iv) maintain any affiliation with any
organization, agency, or other entity that does not comply with clauses (i), (ii), and (iii) of this subparagraph."

This is pointed straight at ACORN, though I'm sure there are other groups affected.

And DavidByron, many low-income housing complexes are financed and managed by non-profits. That's one of the legitimate 501(c)(3) projects, as is non-partisan voter registration.

Oh I see. Thanks.

  • "[O]ur time, our energy, should be spent in educating, agitating, organizing our fellow citizens in the workplace, in the neighborhood, in the schools. Our objective should be to build, painstakingly, patiently but energetically, a movement that, when it reaches a certain critical mass, would shake whoever is in the White House, in Congress, into changing national policy on matters of war and social justice."

    Mr. President, we love America, not because of all of us have seen the beauty all the time.

    But we believed if we kept on working, if we kept on marching, if we kept on voting, if we kept on believing, we would make America beautiful for everybody.

Marx


  • ''With adequate profit, capital is very bold. A certain 10 percent will ensure its employment anywhere; 20 percent will produce eagerness, 50 percent positive audacity; 100 percent will make it ready to trample on all human laws; 300 percent, and there is not a crime which it will not scruple, nor a risk it will not run, even to the chance of its owner being hanged.''
