    The lawsuit alleges the charity Move America Forward invaded the privacy of injured veterans by using their names and stories to solicit donations without their permission and falsely claimed to have a partnership with the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. "Our troops and their commitment to our country should never be exploited in deceitful solicitation gimmicks, but unfortunately they are," state Attorney General Xavier Becerra said Wednesday. The lawsuit alleges the charity violated IRS rules by providing free office space for the political action committees Move America Forward PAC and Tea Party Express. The charity also is accused of...

  • How the Tea Party became as corrupt as the Beltway it loathes

    This Week ^ | 8-7-14 | Michael Brendan Dougherty
    This week, ProPublica released a report on the financial (and moral) corruption of a Tea Party group operating under the name Move America Forward, which was founded by one Sal Russo. Russo also helped start the Our Country Deserves Better PAC, aka the Tea Party Express. Move America Forward has run fake drives to give care packages to troops, stolen images of other charitable campaigns and passed them off as its own, and trumpeted a nonexistent partnership with Walter Reed Hospital — all while funneling very real millions to itself. The group is an industry leader at taking your Tea...
  • Exclusive: ‘Pro-Troop’ Charity Pays Off Tea Party Cronies Instead [Leftist Lies]

    The Daily Beast ^ | August 5, 2014 | Kim Barker
    In February 2013, Move America Forward announced an ambitious fundraising goal. The charity, launched in part by one of the most prominent figures in the Tea Party movement, had adopted the 800 Marines in a battalion fighting in Afghanistan and wanted to send them all care packages. ......................................................... Yet an examination of its fundraising appeals, tax records and other documents shows that Move America Forward has repeatedly misled donors and inflated its charitable accomplishments, while funneling millions of dollars in revenue to the men behind the group and their political consulting firms.

     President Barack Obama is having the worst week ever. On top of three erupting scandals, the IRS targeting conservative groups, AP wiretapping, and Benghazi whistle blowers, he stepped into another. He was pictured at a rainy press conference with the Prime Minister of Turkey. We don't think Marines should be holding umbrellas in the rain. #semperdry Two U.S. Marines were forced to hold an umbrella over the heads of state after the White House requested it, to keep Obama dry while he talked with the press. Never mind the staffers who are supposed to assume this role, Obama wanted...

    HELP!! SOMEONE STOLE FROM THE TROOPS! Friends, we have some tough news to break. As horrible as it sounds, there are people out there who are willing to steal from the troops. Last night, just before a big shipment was planned to go out, some criminal broke the lock to the location where we were storing about 400 care packages. The thieves didn't take them all, but they stole about $5,000 worth of packages that were meant for the troops in Afghanistan. You have to ask yourself, what kind of a heartless person would steal from a non-profit organization...

    ALLEN WEST UNDER ATTACK! YOUR HELP NEEDED NOW!Congressman Allen West (R-Florida) is a freshman pro-troop conservative Member of Congress. As an African-American former military officer with service in Iraq, he has been under constant attack by the left. We are outraged that one of his political opponents – a little rich kid with inherited wealth and no achievements to his name – had the audacity to call Colonel West “a coward.” They are going all out to defeat West by redistricting him out of office, and the pro-troop community must rise up to help this patriotic American stay in...
