One of the complaints that TDPK has raised about bloggers who “harass” him by telling the truth about him is that their truth telling has had an effect on his ability to raise funds for his not-for-profits. That blogging began in 2010 and picked up during 2011. How did that affect his fund raising?
This extract from the Justice Through Music Project IRS Form 990 for 2011 shows a significant rise in contributions from 2010 to 2011. Of course, without the Schedule B (which neither JTMP nor the IRS is obliged to publish), we don’t know if the increase is the result of more big donors, existing big donors increasing their support, or lots of small contributions. If the last case is what really happened, it could be that TDPK was having to work harder to raise money, and keeping track of more contributions would at least partially explain the skyrocketing accounting charges shown on the 990.
Or perhaps TDPK was merely blowing smoke when he claimed that the blogging seriously affected his business.
UPDATE–There is a significant drop in revenue shown between 2008 and 2009. That may have been caused, in part, by the economy tanking or the election cycle. It may also have been affected by the blogging done by Seth Allen as early as 2008. It was TDPK’s suit against Mr. Allen that got Aaron Walker involved, and it was the subsequent lawfare attack on Mr. Walker that drew the attention of this blog.
Some folks believe that there is more going on via TDPK’s Velvet Revolution US organization than JTMP. Could be, although the Form 990s indicate that more money is flowing through JTMP. (TDPK wouldn’t lie to the IRS, would he?) Based on the confirmed information turned up by the Vast Hogewash Research Organization, I can say that both “charities” have been involved in interesting activities.
Gentle Reader, please be patient. More will be revealed when the time is ripe.
