Playing Politics

Alyce Zeoli's political activity under scrutiny

Under the Internal Revenue Code, all section 501(c)(3) organizations are absolutely prohibited from directly or indirectly participating in, or intervening in, any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for elective public office. Contributions to political campaign funds or public statements of position (verbal or written) made on behalf of the organization in favor of or in opposition to any candidate for public office clearly violate the prohibition against political campaign activity. Violating this prohibition may result in denial or revocation of tax-exempt status and the imposition of certain excise taxes. 

We do know that several complaints have been filed in Maryland against Alyce Zeoli's "New Palyul Lineage," also known as "KPC," and that a formal investigation is now underway. This investigation includes screen captures of literally hundreds of political "tweets" by Zeoli, her followers, and officers of the KPC organization.
