N.O.W. Fabricated Budget, Membership Levels
posted by Scott on Wednesday May 16, @09:45PM
from the news dept.
News Insight Magazine reports that the National Organization of Women has been lying about its annual budget and membership levels. A N.O.W. chapter from Virginia requested the IRS non-profit documents of the national group and found that while N.O.W. has claimed it has an annual budget of $10 million, the budget has been under $5 million in the past few years. Furthermore, its claimed membership of over 250,000 is also inaccurate. What I found most interesting is that the salary of Patricia Ireland was disclosed: "The filings suggest that NOW's top leaders enjoy pretty good incomes and lifestyles. The salaries of the top five, including Ireland, are at the level of Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan. Ireland receives $143,252 for a 34-hour workweek. All five top officers also receive generous expense accounts and travel allowances."

Gee, it looks like women's rights activists make more than men's rights activists for doing similar work. ;)

It will be very interesting to see if any major news source picks this up. I would expect that the Wall Street Journal might, and possibly Fox News. We can only hope...

Imagine. After NOW has been going after men's rights groups in L.A. by requesting their IRS forms. What a joke.

I have no idea why anyone would be surprised by these findings.

The only thing that surprises me is the idea that Patricia Ireland works 34 hours a week.

That's a lot of hate!
