Can CAPITOL RESOURCE INSTITUTE have a ‘CITIZEN LOBBY DAY’ considering Federal tax law requires that a 501(c)(3) nonprofit NOT carry on substantial lobbying activity?

Who is Capitol Resource Institute? I decided to dig a little deeper.  

According to the Capitol Resource Institute Facebook page the nosb18.org website went “LIVE” on December 16, 2016.

Next, I visited the Attorney General’s website to search the ‘Files of the Registry of Charitable Trusts’ for more information on the Capitol Research Institute.  The Registry Search tool allows a registrant’s public filings to be viewed and downloaded from the Registry database. These public filings include a copy of the annual informational return (Forms 990, 990-PF, and 990-EZ) filed with the Registry, as well as registration forms and documents that organizations are required to file. My search of ‘Capitol’ yielded the following results on page 3.

CAPITOL RESOURCE FAMILY IMPACT, INC. filed their ‘Initial Registration Form’ July 2, 2008.  cfri

On February 27, 2014 the ‘Registration Status’ of CAPITOL RESOURCE FAMILY IMPACT, INC. read SUSPENDED.

On April 24, 2014, less than 2 months after CAPITOL RESOURCE FAMILY IMPACT, INC.’s ‘Registration Status’ read SUSPENDED, Karen England of CAPITOL RESOURCE INSTITUTE said, “After 27 years, all of the sudden about 9 months ago we got a letter saying your tax exempt status has been revoked.” (video below) 

For those wondering how April 24, 2014 magically morphed into “about 9 months ago” when the notices dated October 10th, 2013, November 18th, 2013 and December 24th, 2013 were in reality 4, 5 and 6 months prior I can only offer one explanation.

Meanwhile, around the same time CAPITOL RESOURCE FAMILY IMPACT, INC. was SUSPENDED Karen England filed an ‘Annual Registration Renewal Fee Report’ for CAPITOL RESOURCE INSTITUTE listing ‘Gross annual revenue’ of $219,589.00.

I encourage you to read all 34 CAPITOL RESOURCE INSTITUTE ‘Related Documents’ available on the Attorney General’s website.  Why?  Because SB277 has previously demonstrated not all charities are legitimate and aboveboard. 

Would you believe CAPITOL RESOURCE INSTITUTE documents on the California Attorney General’s website are similar to the CAPITOL RESOURCE FAMILY IMPACT, INC. documents?  It’s true.  For example:

Why does each CAPITOL RESOURCE INSTITUTE entity pictured below yield zero filings with the California Secretary of State after 29 years?

*The irony of holding a ‘CITIZEN LOBBY DAY’ at the California Secretary of State Auditorium while not filing with the California Secretary of State is undeniable.     

How is Capitol Research Institute’s involvement with SB18 not in direct violation of their own RESTATED ARTICLES OF INCORPORATION?
