Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


The IRS Form 990 for a not-for-profit is supposed to list “Officers, Directors, Trustees, and Key Employees.” Velvet Revolution US listed the following individuals for 2011:

Jeff Cohen, Executive Director
Brad Friedman, Director

Although Brett Kimberlin testified under oath in the Kimberlin v. Allen lawsuit that he ran VRUS, he is not listed—not even as a key employee.

Kevin Zeese is an activist lawyer who has been involved with filing bar complaints against conservative lawyers (such as Justice Clarence Thomas) on behalf of VRUS. Although the VRUS website refers to Mr. Zeese as a Director of the organization, he is not listed on the 990 either.

When I asked a lawyer familiar with not-for-profit filings about these sorts of omissions, he remarked, “Oh, that’s just Kimberlin’s usual lack of attention to the niceties of corporate forms.”

Hmmmm.
