SPAY AND NEUTER THE HSUS (A STRATEGIC PLAN)
By bombarding the IRS with letters and our elected officials with emails, we will call attention to the arrogant practices of the HSUS. We MUST fight back NOW or our battles may be over. It's time we stand up in unison and say "ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!!" We refuse to let those who are guided by misinformation and the lust for power take over our agriculture, wildlife management and ownership and enjoyment of animals.
For the last several years Attorney Frank Losey has been issuing Calls to Action asking animal owners to contact Members of Congress about the excessive lobbying activities and prohibited political campaign activities of the Humane Society of the U.S. (HSUS) These Calls to Action resulted in thousands of emails and letters being sent by concerned citizens in all 50 States to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and to their respective Members of Congress. While it is true that most Members of Congress literally and figuratively sent non-responsive responses back to their constituents, ALL DID NOT! To date, 27 Members of Congress from 15 different states have forwarded the concerns expressed by their constituents about the HSUS either to the IRS; or to the Treasury's Inspector General; or to U.S. Attorneys in the Justice Department, including the U.S. Attorney General, or to all three Offices! And each of the 27 Members of Congress specifically mentioned, by name, the HSUS!
The excessive lobbying and prohibited activities of the HSUS were documented by the more than 3,000 pages of documents methodically sent to the IRS by Frank over the last four+ years to develop a paper trail.

It now appears that HSUS has filed years of incorrect tax returns with the IRS. Bloomberg News reports on a complaint we have filed against HSUS with the IRS, citing an accounting practice that inflates HSUS’s contributions—namely, counting donated air time as contributions.

IRS’s Lois Lerner, ‘active member’ of Humane Society, may have delayed investigating group’s tax status.
Lois G. Lerner, the embattled Internal Revenue Service official who apologized for improperly scrutinizing the tax-exempt status of conservative nonprofit groups, is a member of the Humane Society of the United States, a liberal animal advocacy organization. Lerner — the suddenly infamous IRS Exempt Organizations Division director — “is an active member of the Humane Society of the United States where her efforts in performing pet rescues necessitated by the 2005 Gulf Coast hurricanes were widely acknowledged,” according to her biography.
