Monday: Faith, Hope & Charity: NGO America

Kevin Begos/Contribute: Where does your money really go?
Whether it’s wrongdoing, wasteful spending on administrative overhead, rent or celebrity balls, or questionable proportions of benefit to causes and corporations in symbiotic cause marketing relationships, who can tell? The Internal Revenue Service lacks enough investigators to glimpse more than a minute sample of nonprofit behavior.

Oh boy.......!!!!! Let's hear it for the judge!!!!!!!

WASHINGTON (AP) -- White House visitor logs are public documents, a federal judge ruled Monday, rejecting a legal strategy that the Bush administration had hoped would get around public records laws and let them keep their guests a secret.

The ruling is a blow to the Bush administration, which has fought the release of records showing visits by prominent religious conservatives.

Visitor records are created by the Secret Service, which is subject to the Freedom of Information Act. But the Bush administration has ordered the data turned over to the White House, where they are treated as presidential records outside the scope of the public records law.

But U.S. District Judge Royce C. Lamberth ruled logs from the White House and Vice President Dick Cheney's residence remain Secret Service documents and are subject to public records requests.
