hannity inanity

buzzflash tells us that an official complaint against sean hannity's charity has been filed w/the irs:
just over a week ago, accusations against sean hannity, oliver north, and the freedom alliance charity “scam” began to raise the ire of people from the full breadth of the political spectrum. now the outrage from concerned citizens — like turn off fox readers — over hannity’s use of the organization to burnish his patriot credibility with questionable allotment of funds for actual veterans and their families has apparently led to citizens for responsibility and ethics in washington (crew) formally filing a complaint with the federal trade commission (ftc) and the irs.

crew took the investigation further than most and decided to file a complaint with the ftc for what it described as hannity’s and freedom concert’s “illegal and deceptive marketing practices by suggesting that all money generated by ticket sales for the freedom concerts he sponsors each summer goes to scholarships for children of killed and wounded service members.”…

as far the irs request for investigation, crew alleges that freedom alliance has failed to live up to the restrictions of a 501(c)(3). in order to qualify for its tax-exempt status, freedom alliance had to remain outside the realm of politics, a pretty difficult thing for it to accomplish with its very political founder, north. nonetheless, sloan explained how “they’ve been promoting oliver north’s commentary [and] running these freedom cruises where michael steele and newt gingrich come on board.” that kind of activity sounds awfully political and may ultimately cost freedom alliance its status as a charity.

evidently, the efforts of LIBS trying to bring down Sean Hannity, a fine veteran.....oh, wait, he didn't serve in the military...other priorities?.....a learned scholar....oh, wait, he didn't graduate college...an honest, upstanding public figure....after all, SOME of the Freedom Concert revenues went for scholarships!

Gosh, I hate things I've never heard of! It must be true - it's bolded in all caps! I stand chastened; I will show conservatives the love and tolerance that Ann Coulter has shown liberals.
