    be told.  One piece of it appeared in the NY Times.

    She was active in True The Vote last year, a group that drummed up publicity to imply that there was rampant voter fraud with bus loads of foreign people showing up at random locations to register an vote.

    The article at the link talks about her other organization, King Street Tea Party.   Turns out there was a second organization applying for tax exempt status and it had the exact same name.  The organizer of the other group was asked about his connections to Engelbrecht, if any.

    This brings up something that I've been told about the IRS selection process of applications for review.  In cases where there are mulitple applicants using the same or similar names, the flagged organizations were reviewed to see whether they were pooling money or if there were any other connections between them.  Apparently there are ways to game the system by using more than one organziation and shifting money around between them.

    This sounds reasonable and logical to me and the questions for the owner of King Street Tea Party seems to agree.  Sooner or later this information would have to come out.  When someone decides it ok to tell the public the whole story.

    There is no existence without doubt.
