Romney Staffer Committing Charitable Fraud [View all]

Source: The Democratic Daily

Bill Murphy, Mitt Romney’s Social Media Director, and his colleague Ali Akbar have ripped off a lot of people. They ripped off the Tea Party with the American Liberty Alliance. They ripped off movement Conservatives with the National Bloggers Club. They even ripped off Andrew Breitbart. But their days of making it rain misbegotten right-wing dollars may be numbered.

In 2009 Murphy and Akbar worked together at American Liberty Alliance, an organization which collected “donations” throughout the summer while claiming they were just waiting for their 501(c)3 application to go through. It never did. Then they worked together at National Bloggers Club, a group which solicited “donations” for the past six months while actually calling itself a non-profit (status pending). But according to the IRS, they never bothered to file the necessary documents.

Which means the National Bloggers Club is NOT a non-profit. Not only that, it was NEVER a non-profit.

Murphy and Akbar started NBC with seed money from Foster Friess, the conservative billionaire who single-handedly kept the Rick Santorum campaign shuffling along far past its expiration date like some rotting, remote-controlled corpse. Currently Akbar functions as President, and prior to joining the Romney campaign, Murphy was NBC’s Director. They filed for incorporation on January 27th – in Texas, for some reason. The company is listed as a non-profit.
