Money is Donald Trump’s solution to every situation. Everything has it’s price, whether you’re paying for a passing grade in school or buying a woman, it can all be had for the right amount of money. In the case of the 2020 election, Trump is using the same approach. He’s got a pastor in Cleveland that hands out envelopes stuffed with cash to woo voters to the Trump cause. The main problem with this is that a church is a non-profit and engaging in political campaigns is illegal for non-profits and may endanger their tax status. Raw Story:
“At the center of the controversy is a new charity called the Urban Revitalization Coalition led by Ohio Pastor Darrell Scott,” the report states which has, “Raised red flags saying the cash events may violate tax laws that bar nonprofits from engaging in political campaign activities and could jeopardize the group’s tax-exempt status. In an interview, Scott said he’s careful to follow the law., but groups like the NAACP accuse him of trying to buy support for President Trump.”
And it won’t surprise you that Man of God Mike Pence is involved in this tawdry business. Darrel Scott works with Mike Pence’s PAC, America First Policies. That PAC gave Scott’s Urban Revitalization Coalition a $238,000 grant in 2018, to “get it off the ground,” and then the rallies with cash giveaways started. Donald Trump is indeed the Queen For A Day president, his State of the Union address was far from a one time deal. Watch the rally clips here. I like the one where “Pastor” Scott proclaims, “Come back in February — where we give you FIFTY thousand dollars.” Amen and hallelujah. Prosperity consciousness meets politics and Trump is buying black votes. Terrific.
