California Attorney General Kamala Harris is “Big Sister”

Kamala Harris, California’s Attorney General, is seeking to replace Barbara Boxer in the U S Senate. Anything is better than Barbara Boxer you say? Hold on and not so fast. It seems that AG Harris wants all your IRS information if you are a conservative group looking for donors. She wants to know who  ALL the conservative donors are. Not really a supporter of freedom of assembly and speech, is she? Read more here.

California AG Kamala Harris wants your private information from the IRS.

California Attorney General Kamala Harris is considered a rising star in the Democratic Party, and in all likelihood will win the Senate seat being vacated by Barbara Boxer this November. Articular, telegenic, and complimented by no less than Barack Obama for her beauty, she is ready to take her place on the bench of future presidential hopefuls.

Unfortunately, she is displaying the worst instincts of a government bully. Ignoring post-Watergate reforms to the Internal Revenue Code designed to protect confidential federal tax return information, Kamala Harris is defending against three lawsuits filed by conservative organizations to protect the privacy of their donors.

The lawsuits, including one brought by Americans for Prosperity Foundation, allege that Ms. Harris has violated the First Amendment by requiring charities that wish to ask Californians for contributions first disclose to her their donors listed on their confidential federal tax return Schedule B. Her coercive demands are accompanied by threats of fines and denial of permits to those who do not accede.

Ms. Harris’ demands, AFPF alleges in its lawsuit, violate the rights of association and privacy expressed in the 1958 landmark Supreme Court decision NAACP v. Alabama, in which that state’s Democrat attorney general tried to stop the civil rights movement in his state by acquiring the names of NAACP’s members and financial supporters.
