Wow! Can you believe it?
The funds raised by NJ Senate Majority Leader Loretta Weinberg at the June 9, 2016 fundraiser appear to be AWOL from NJ Senate President Steve Sweeney Super-PAC's July 15 ELEC report!
As reported here, the Super-PAC fundraiser for Sweeney was held at the IRS-registered address of former Councilwoman Beth Mason's 501(c)3, the Mason Civic League, Inc.
Is the apparent failure to report political contributions raised at the June 9 fundraiser an "oversight" or... in response to facts exposed here on GA?
According to a source who attended June 9 fundraiser: "people were saying that [you] were totally wrong. "
That Sweeney's Super-PAC was being holding a fundraiser at the IRS-registered address of a 501(c)3, the Mason Civic League, Inc.?
Wrong that the Mason Civic League reports "less than $50,000 in gross receipts" annually allowing them to file a non-transparent e-Postcard Tax return?
None of the facts reported by GA were "wrong."
The Mason Civic League has filed e-Postcard returns from 2010-2015 under the registered address where the June 9 Sweeney fundraiser was held; during the time period, the Mason Civic League has occupied (2) storefronts (including a community space) on Hoboken's Washington Street and has had paid employees.

GA represents the interest of the taxpaying PUBLIC. It is a matter of public interest and public concern that this 501(c)3 is "hiding" its contributions and expenditures behind e-Postcard returns- then incredibly, a POLITICAL FUNDRAISER is held at its registered address!
These e-Postcard filings HIDE what my taxes (and yours) are subsidizing. Hoboken residents have seen political campaigns and meetings brazenly hosted at the 501(c)3's Washington Street storefront. What other political activities is this 501(c)3 involved in? Did taxpayers underwrite expenses for Loretta Weinberg's Super-PAC fundraiser?
It is impossible to know when this "charity" files e-Postcard tax returns.
Worse, when this blog gave Weinberg a heads-up, the show went on anyway.
GA wanted to see how much money was raised on June 9, and WHO the donors were, so I checked the July 15 NJ-ELEC filing for New Jerseyans for a Better Tomorrow.
Can you find them?
