And I posted this on that other thread as well - perhaps you can provide this information:

I’ve been a conservative activist for over a decade. Was out in the streets protesting long before the Tea Party came to pass. I’m glad to see all of the new blood, but I also know that with new movements comes new opportunities to fleece people.

Also, I’m not asking anyone for donations. You are. So you have a much higher standard to meet here to explain where those donations are going than I do to explain my conservative bona fides.

And I’ve worked for a non-profit in the past. It actually raked in some good money and paid good salaries. Non-profit means nothing to what those within it can make from it.

So there have been some serious allegations levelled here. And I really haven’t seen anything that you’ve posted that significantly addresses those allegations. How much of your budget goes towards salaries? Towards marketing? Towards advertising for donations? Towards fundraising?

Versus how much goes towards the sponsorships and activism you speak of?

Doesn’t have to be a complicated accounting - just simple line items will do. Salaries. Marketing. Fundraising costs. Activism. As percentages of your budget.

Also, if you have it, a link to any filings you may have made publicly to support those percentages.

Prove the critics wrong. I am more than willing to evenhandedly review the evidence. Present some that is more than talk. Give us the kind of numbers that are routinely used to evaluate the efficiency of charities and non-profits in how donations are sued.
