Reinstated despite years of delinquent filings.
At the same time the Internal Revenue Service delayed or denied requests for tax-exempt status from hundreds of conservative non-profit groups, it was quietly restoring the tax-exempt status of an Islamist front group accused of collaborating with terrorists.
Last year, the politicized agency reinstated the Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations tax-exempt status despite years of delinquent tax filings. CAIR officials had met with officials inside the White House before the decision was made.
Though Democrat-connected CAIR did not officially endorse Obama, many of its staffers helped turn out the Muslim vote for his re-election. CAIR boasted that its own polling showed more than 85 percent of Muslim-Americans voted for Obama.
In 2011, the IRS stripped the groups national office of its nonprofit status for failure to file annual tax reports as required by federal law.
The moved followed requests by then-Rep. Sue Myrick, R-N.C., and other congressional leaders asking the IRS to investigate after the 2009 bestseller Muslim Mafia called attention to CAIRs missing IRS filings and foreign donations.
During the years CAIR failed to disclose its donors to the government, it solicited funds from Libya, Sudan and other terror-sponsoring foreign governments, according to Muslim Mafia. CAIR is not registered as a foreign agent.
CAIR repeatedly failed to file its annual disclosure report, IRS Form 990. CAIR blames a clerical error for the delinquency and claims to have completed the forms. However, several news organizations, including Politico.com and Gannett Co., have asked CAIR for the 2007-2010 documents, and CAIR has not been able to produce them.

Wait, it will be here soon.
The current occupant of the oval office is using the irs to eliminate opponents and to install jihadism in the USA. No surprise there.
I’ve witnessed the rise and fall of the American Republic. I give it about 10 more years, max.
These monsters need to be removed from USG. They _should_ be removed from the USA also. Send them home, wherever that is, SA, Iraq, Syria?
BTW, them is the Obama executive branch.
1. What’s the difference between CAIR and ACORN?
Other than two letters, same-same. Yank their chain!
2. FR is too ‘political’ for 501C status, but CAIR isn’t?
As my beloved granny (RIP) used to say: “Don’t step in the cowflop, Stevie.”
I’ve had my ration from the “progressives”.
How ‘bout you?
