    The IRS website lets you search their database for all federally-recognized nonprofits. Only donations to this class of nonprofits are tax-deductible.

    So, go to the website dump in "Free Speech Foundation." The only one that comes back, nationally, is in Boise, ID. I don't think that this one is connected to our man "Gannon." Guidestar.org is down right now, so I can't give you details, but I saw this nonprofit yesterday and ruled them out. I'll double-check when guidestar is back up.

    What I think this means:
    I think that "Gannon's" Free Speech Foundation is a fradulent nonprofit, misleading donors into thinking they will get a tax deduction for a donation. I think we could get Mr. "Gannon" in deep trouble for this, if we can track him down.

    AND! I just went to recheck his whois info, and now see an "I. Christian" as the domain registrant! I think that this has been changed overnight, because last night it read "J. Daniels."

    Between I.Christian and J.Daniels, I think we can be pretty sure that we're dealing with another pseudonym on the domain registrant information. Damn!

    This post kills fascists.

      I searched Guidestar, I searched Publication 78, I searched the Idaho State records.

      All of my research seems to indicate that Free Speech Foundation is indeed a fraudulent non-profit.

      This needs to be the focus of the Jeff Gannon investigation in my opinion.
