Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


It’s all about the Benjamins, so one of the things I do from time to time is go over the IRS Form 990s filed by The Dread Deadbeat Panhandler Kimberlin’s “charities.” The TKPOTD from six years ago today was about 2011 paperwork filed for Velvet Revolution US. (That’s his 501(c)4 that has had its name changed to Protect Our Elections/EMPR.)

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.
