Brett Kimberlin and his cohorts have been publicly accusing Ali Akbar of defrauding donors to the National Bloggers Club (NBC) by falsely claiming the NBC was a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Donations to a 501(c)3 are tax deductible. Kimberlin also claimed that Ali had never even applied for 501(c)3 status. Sounds like the basis for a good defamation lawsuit against Kimberlin to me.
Actually, Ali had applied for the nonprofit status some time ago, but the status grant was long in coming. You know, IRS, conservative non-profit, Lois Lerner -- you get the picture.
Well, the IRS finally granted the nonprofit status as of last Friday. Now one of the claims Brett Kimberlin made in his RICO lawsuit has been proven totally false. Wait til the judge hears about this, hey Brett?
Here's Ali's Facebook post of a few minutes ago:
