CREW: Regarding the Commission on Hope, Growth and Opportunity

On May 23, 2011 Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) called for the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and the Federal Election Commission (FEC) to investigate whether the Commission on Hope, Growth and Opportunity (CHGO) violated tax and campaign finance laws. CHGO spent millions of dollars on political ads during the 2010 mid-term elections in violation of its 501(c)(4) tax status, and failed to file any required disclosure reports with the FEC.
