(Atlanta, GA) – The budding romance between gubernatorial candidate Jason Carter and Better Georgia, a self-described “progressive values advocacy organization”, has reignited curiosity throughout the Peach State regarding the legality of the group’s behavior.
“Better Georgia, be it a well-funded attack arm of the Democratic Party or a wild pack of liberal activists, should come clean about their partisan behavior, funding sources, and expenditures,” said Ryan Mahoney, spokesman for the Georgia Republican Party. “While entitled to their own misinformed, incoherent, and radical opinions, they must be held accountable and play by the same set of rules as everyone else.
The Georgia Republican Party is calling for an IRS audit of the “non-partisan” group to see if their full-throated endorsements of candidates like Jason Carter and Michelle Nunn, expenditures, and operations comply with the federal tax code.
“Instead of harassing law abiding Republicans and conservative-leaning organizations, Obama’s IRS should investigate shady organizations like Better Georgia. Clearly, there’s more to this fringe group than meets the eye.”
