FOUR REASONS American men seek romance abroad: Prague, Ha Long Bay, Red Square, small villages in Latin America. Somehow meeting a Czech, Vietnamese, Russian or Peruvian/Colombian/Brazilian woman for a date at one of these exotic places is incomparably more exciting than meeting a hometown girl at the local coffeeshop. Opponents of a man's right to meet foreign women online never stop to consider how enjoyable it is to travel/work/live abroad and learn new cultures and languages while seeking a marriage partner.

Now that the whole world is aware of a IRS complaint against the Tahirih Justice Center, the original author would like to release some of the details. One important part of the complaint includes a request to determine if Tahirih executives knowingly and willingly failed to declare extensive lobbying expenditures to the IRS on their tax forms, a possible violation of  18 USC Section 1001,  punishable by fines and up to 5 years imprisonment.

For those unfamiliar with Tahirih Justice Center they are a non profit charity organization with a stated cause to help abused immigrant women. On the surface they are one of America’s most respected charities emphatically endorsed and supported by a bevy of powerful politicians and celebrities including Queen Noor of Jordan, Hilary Clinton and former Senator and now Vice President, Joe Biden. But aside from the powerful connections and impressive propaganda it appears they were involved with an enormous amount of tax improprieties that were hidden from Federal regulatory officials.

We’re certainly not calling them criminals but merely requesting that the public (taxpayers) examine the following information and make their own judgments.

IRS complaint against the Tahirih Justice Center; submitted August, 2008

The following represents a condensed paraphrased version of a complaint and request for investigation against the Tahirih Justice Center, a non profit charity regulated under IRC 501 (c ) (3). Specifically our complaint alleges that Tahirih Justice Center (we believe) violated the tax provisions for non profit charities by engaging in excessive lobbying activities and concealing those lobbying efforts to the IRS. As a general rule lobbying activities by non profit charities (501 (c ) (3) are restricted by the IRS and excessive lobbying can result in revocation of the organizations tax exempt status.

Exhibit #1

Beginning in 2002 they failed to declare efforts to influence legislation on their 2002 tax form denoting a “no” answer to question #1, Schedule A which asks the following question:
“During the year , has the organization attempted to influence national. State or local legislation, including any attempt to influence public opinion on a legislative matter or referendum?” 

http://www.guidestar.org/FinDocuments/2002/541/858/2002-541858176-1-9.pdf
(Their negative declaration can viewed by scrolling to top of web page 8, line 1)

The same year Tahirih incriminates themselves by disclosing information to Congress on the Lobbying Act disclosure form by registering an employee (Heidi Boas) as a lobbyist and providing a narrative statement describing their legislative attempts… “to encourage the drafting and passage of a bill to regulate International matchmaking."

http://soprweb.senate.gov/index.cfm?event=getFilingDetails&filingID=dc2ffa5e-3095-487e-a2d0-0720269c9a50

Exhibit #2

The following year in 2003 the Tahirih Justice Center again failed to declare extensive efforts to influence legislation  (lobby) on their 2003 tax form by denying they were involved in any attempt to push through legislative agendas.

http://www.guidestar.org/FinDocuments/2003/541/858/2003-541858176-1-9.pdf
(Scroll to top of web page 8, first question)

Perhaps the most incrinating evidence to the contrary was revealed Jeanne Smoot (Public Policy Counsel for Tahirih) stated under oath that she was hired in August 2003... “to advocate on behalf of their clients in Congress or with administrative bodies." Smoot provided this testimony in Federal court while the Tahirih Justice Center was defending the constitutionality of the IMBRA law in April 2006.

Meanwhile Tahirih failed to declare their lobbying efforts to the IRS but did manage to report their lobbying to Congress- a different government regulatory agency. The following excerpts were disclosed to Congress (that were not disclosed to the IRS:

"Lobbying for co-sponsorship for HR 2949/ S 1455 to regulate the International Marriage Broker Regulation industry including meetings with hill staffers and soliciting grassroots support among advocates nationwide. Lobbying to lift the number of caps on the number of asylees who can annually adjust status, and for other reforms to ameliorate the condition of asylum-seekers. Also lobbying against measures such as HR 2671 and S 1906 that would enlist state and local police to enforce federal civil immigration law ; against measures to expand “expedited removal” and otherwise curtail immigrants’ due process rights (e.g. as in HR 10); against other measures that would impact battered immigrants’ access to life-saving
public services, Finally we occasionally sign onto letters circulated by………….”


http://soprweb.senate.gov/index.cfm?event=getFilingDetails&filingID=f926d00c-058f-4e47-a471-90f7e4ad872e


Exhibit #3
(We believe) The Tahirih Justice Center systematically engaged in a pattern of deception (and possible perjury) by failing to declare efforts to influence legislation on their 2004 tax form denoting a “no” to question #1, Schedule A and also omitted expenditures for direct lobbying and grassroots lobbying on line 36 and 37.

http://www.guidestar.org/FinDocuments/2004/541/858/2004-541858176-01c5a4f8-9.pdf
(To view this information scroll to web page 8, question #1, then go to web page 11, question 36, and 37).

Tahirih completely contradicts themselves by declaring a lobbying expenditure of $20,000 during the last half of 2004 (July 1- December 31, 2004) disclosed under the Lobbying Disclosure Act.

http://soprweb.senate.gov/index.cfm?event=getFilingDetails&filingID=dc879ca3-55e7-4133-97db-88850a5376d5

Another incriminating piece of evidence comes from Tahirih's own newsletter dated May 2004, on page 6, Subheading "Update: Preserving Access of Immigrant Crime victims to Police". Tahirih admits to influencing legislation by stating,

"Tahirih continues its vigorous opposition advocacy against the "CLEAR" act and "Homeland Security enhancements act" .... Tahirih has sounded the alarm on Capitol hill."

In 2004 we believe they exceeded permissible lobbying activity for a non  elected 501 (h) organization.  It is clearly evident that Tahirih staff hours included more than 5% legislative influence considering that the Public Policy Counsel was heavily involved with influencing legislation along with the Executive Director and a summer intern Kate Voight who stated she spent “most of her time working on two (legislative) issues.” (At that time they had 12 employees.)

They catapulted their influence much further conducting a massive grassroots lobbying campaign urging others other to act on their behalf as stated in their May 2004 newsletter.

"Tahirih has worked hard to raise the issue to public attention and generate support for legislative change. Over 150 organizations from over 25 states have endorsed a “sign on letter” circulated by Tahirih urging members of Congress to take action."

Exhibit #4

After years of denial, the Tahirih Justice finally disclosed an expenditure of $12,513  for direct lobbying activities on their 2005 tax form denoted on line 37, schedule A.  However the same year they failed to declare “expenditures to influence public opinion (grassroots lobbying)” denoted on line 36, Schedule A. Tahirih contradicts themselves by reporting to Congress on the Lobbying Act disclosure form for 2005 they were “Lobbying to support for HR 3657/ S 1618 ultimately to regulate International Broker Industry, including soliciting grassroots support”.
The Tahirih Justice center led a coalition of 150 organizations in a massive grassroots effort from 2002-2005 ultimately resulting in the passage of the International Marriage Broker Regulation Act in December 2005.  Yet they (falsely) declared they spent a grand total of $12,513 over a grueling 4 year campaign resulting in successful passage of a federal law which realistically would require an enormous amount of money and effort.

http://www.guidestar.org/FinDocuments/2005/541/858/2005-541858176-02a3526c-9.pdf

http://soprweb.senate.gov/index.cfm?event=getFilingDetails&filingID=dc879ca3-55e7-4133-97db-88850a5376d5

Exhibit # 5
The following excerpts reveals their legislative influence at the state and local level…

In 2004 the Tahirih Justice Center was instrumental in forming “VA-SCOPE” also known as the Virginia Alliance for Sensible Community Policing efforts. VA- SCOPE was formed in order to defeat or support various immigration related proposals in the VA state legislature and local jurisdictions. An internet article published by “The Virginia Organizing Project” reveals their instrumental role with a quote by Jeanne Smoot, Public Policy Counsel for Tahirih:

“As an organization that assists immigrant women survivors of violent crimes, we were concerned about the chilling affect that local immigration enforcement proposals have on the willingness of victims to come forward , report crimes and seek help. Together with other groups sharing similar concerns about preserving trust between local law enforcement and the immigrant communities of Virginia we formed VA-SCOPE to oppose such measures.”
The 2007 legislative session of the VA general assembly saw 53 immigrant related proposals. Tahirih received additional reinforcements to help lead opposition to local immigration enforcement. Here are some excerpts from Tahirih’s newsletter:

“Tahirih led the specific effort to rally advocates against local immigration enforcement measures.…The Tahirih Justice center worked with a broad -based coalition that succeeded in defeating rash proposals like HB 2937... If HB 2937 had become law, Tahirih could have lost critical grant money that enables to provide our legal services”

Conclusion: (not included in the original complaint)

The Internal Revenue Service provides privileges for Non profit organizations such as Tahirih Justice who help provide vital services to American society.  In exchange for their tax exempt privileges they are required to abide by  IRS restrictions which severely limit their lobbying activities. The Tahirih Justice appears to have violated this agreement by successfully promoting an Internet dating law during 2002-2005 and then received a $1.1 M grant to enforce the very law that (we believe) they promoted illegally. They appear to be operating as a for -profit enterprise along with a dramatic rise in profits and should have their tax exempt status revoked.

Very nice work. It sure will be read widely. What a nice way for the pap smears at Tahirih to start their week.  The entire post is copied below, just in case.

Greetings again:

My time was cut short yesterday and I wanted to provide some additional information.
First, The complaint was the result of close coordination and consultation with a prominent government watchdog group and they prefer to remain anonymous- at least for the time being. The author spent untold hours on the phone gathering information from their chief investigator and the complaint was drafted later.

Secondly, the information in the posting yesterday (4 pages) represented a condensed version of the original complaint which actually totaled 84 pages that were submitted to IRS Commissioner Douglas and the IRS EO complaint investigations section in Texas. A decision was made to release some of the information a year after the complaint was initiated because we felt the release would not compromise the investigation.

Shortly after the complaint was announced somebody deleted many of the links to their newsletter which contained a considerable amount of incriminating evidence describing their extensive legislative influence at both the federal and state level.

The Internal Revenue Service is notoriously slow at processing complaints and we expect them to take anywhere from  1-3 years if they decide to initiate punitive measures against the Tahirih Justice Center. Needless to say patience is in order here.

Even though a well written formal complaint has been submitted this would not preclude others from submitting their own complaint and I would encourage others to come forward. The IRS vigorously protects the identity of those taxpayers who provide information regarding violations of the tax code(s). Feel free to submit your own complaint to:
IRS EO Classification
Mail Code 4910
1100 Commerce Street
Dallas, TX 75242

You should include the violators name, address and phone in the complaint heading. Also include their IRS identification number.

Thanks and god bless you.

Taxpayer 1 the work you have done is probably the most important work anyone connected with this website has ever done.

I abhor corruption in any form, and especially if the corruption is used to smear me and my wife. 

Let's see if there is corruption here, and if so whether this organization will be punished for its actions.  If it is, we will hold a huge fundraiser to publish it for all the world to see.

Advocacy groups that get taxpayer money for "protecting" foreign women and the thoughtless media call foreign woman a "mail order bride" if she met her husband via internet.  This is American imperialism, it is denigrating, insulting and portrays the women as helpless fools.

Taxpayer #1 you are a true PATRIOT. Thank you very much for all you have done and you have made my day.

NOTHING! I repeat NOTHING could bring a smile to my face more than the thought (or better yet an AIP photo worldwide) of Layli Miller-Muro and her Daddy, Tahirih Justice Center kingpin, Larry (“I don’t like paying taxes”) Miller/ Lawrence M Miller being led away in chains and handcuffs on national TV for their various crimes of ripping off the U.S. taxpayers to influence legislature (IMBRA) as well as promoting the Middle Eastern religious CULT, the Bahai Faith, which is propagandized heavily by Layli Miller-Muro with U.S. taxpayer dollars for their New World Order (where they take over the U.S. government, ESPECIALLY the IRS – or “damned infidels” as Layli and Larry call them) as well as any other government entity that dares to stand up to them.

“Stop your investigations now you damned IRS infidels!” screams Layli hysterically, “or you will pay dearly before ME, the Almighty Bahai Queen Layli, and don’t forget to DONATE NOW!”

“Same goes for me too, you damned IRS infidels!” screams Bahai kingpin Larry Miller hysterically, “Or you will suffer my mighty Bahai wrath! And don’t search our homes either for kiddie porn, Bahai terrorist material, trafficked African women, ill gotten cash, the REAL set of books showing how many taxpayers dollars have gone into our pockets, to the Bahai Cult Cells in the USA, the Bahai Cult headquarters in the Middle East and Al-Qeada as well as drafts for our future IMBRA type laws to take away even more of your infidel laws! Freedom and liberties? Bah! Constitutional rights? Humbug! Only Bahai elite like us deserve laws to protect OUR rights! We will crush your government and you IRS infidels will spend the rest of your lives in a Bahai Tahirih Justice Center prison, paid for with taxpayer dollars of course!”

Squirm Layli squirm! Squirm Larry you worm! I hope the 5 years in prison is for EACH taxpayer dollar you Bahai swindlers have stolen as well as a $25,000 fine for every dollar ripped off from the US taxpayers. That should be good for 1,000 life sentences and a 10 trillion dollar fine (paid for with your million dollar homes purchased with tax dollars.)

In the meantime I think Layli and Larry’s passports should be taken away before they try to skip the country back to Iran OR BERMUDA with millions and millions of taxpayer dollars. INTERPOL ON ALERT!

Remember, the tax improprieties are the LEAST of their many crimes! These are premeditated con artists, serial swindlers and pedophiles. They should be in prison right now!

I think the understatement of the year would be to say that Layli lobbied for IMBRA as well as trafficking Bahais from Iran under the guise of trafficked African women who “might” or “could” face female circumcision by their African MOTHERS (not to be confused with male circumcision that happens MANY times every day in the USA and other places.) Anyone ever heard of Layli’s famous taxpayer funded Bahai propaganda speech “The Bahai Writings say……?”

Then she also lobbies heavily to try to get officials not to enforce immigration laws (well, except for IMBRA of course) so she can sneak in more trafficked African women willing to convert to Bahaism and serve the Bahai elite as well as Bahai Cult members in Iran to help with the overthrow.

“NOT overthrow, Frank!” screams Layli, “New World Order! New World Order! Don’t resist us you infidels! It is fultile!”

Hey Layli, are you trying to tell us that you didn’t “attempt to influence national. State or local legislation, including any attempt to influence public opinion on a legislative matter or referendum like IMBRA?”

“What is IMBRA?” babbles Layli, “I never heard of it and certainly had nothing to do with the lobbying, drafting of and propaganda to promote it. I didn’t even try to defend it in court and I certainly never got $1.1 million dollars to enforce it. By the way, what do you think of my new $1.1 million dollar mansion. I think I’ll call it Charles Mansion. Ha ha ha. Hee hee hee drool slobber! FAAAAAARRRRTTT!”

And the Layli Miller-Muro, Larry Miller, Tahirih Justice Center fraud continues unabated...... for now!

Dear brother Frank, and anyone else so interested,

I believe the time has come that an actual watchdog organization be formed (and between continents) that is designed as a public service to specifically check the nefarious influence of this specific cult and its various actors on multiple levels. These sorts of exposes are stepping stones. Note that it was through similar efforts whereby the influence of Scientology (together with its various front activities) was checked in France and Germany. If anyone here appreciates the urgency of such an endeavor, please drop me a line privately.

Taxpayer, you have done a great, great thing here. Bless you!

I crossposted the main item of this thread to a few places. The paragraph above caught someone's eye, who said:

From the 2003 Annual Report (attached below):

The international matchmaking industry has exploded in response to American men’s demands for “traditional wives.” Some of these unions are beneficial to both parties, but an increasing number of women are paired with abusive men. The Campaign advocates for legislative change, accountability of agencies, and protection of the women through litigation and public outreach.

Note: Miller recently changed this stump speech to "in response to some American men's demands" in order to suggest that she is now targeting a small group of "creeps" and to avoid admitting that nearly all American men would prefer such women if access to them was more convenient.  In response to this demand, Match.com created Match.com International.


P U B L I C  P O L I C Y

2003 was a banner year for the Tahirih Justice Center’s efforts to push for systemic change to protect immigrant women and girls from violence. While Tahirih had always endeavored to contribute at the highest levels of policymaking on issues affecting our clients, our ability to engage deeply and consistently had been constrained by the lack of dedicated public policy staff. Recognizing that Tahirih’s vital—and fairly unique—interplay of direct services and advocacy work enables us to serve our clients best, we took steps to reflect that balanced approach in our staffing. During 2002 and early 2003 Tahirih was host to Heidi Boas, a John Gardner Fellow from Stanford University, as Public Policy Associate. With Heidi’s departure in August 2003, Tahirih brought on board Jeanne Smoot, formerly of the Harvard Program on Humanitarian Policy and Conflict Research, as permanent Public Policy Counsel. Tahirih’s now full-fledged advocacy capacity has meant not only a greater involvement with other organizations’ policy priorities but also a new ability to spearhead our own initiatives.

In 2003, Tahirih was involved in a wide range of public policy initiatives including the ratification of the Convention to Eliminate Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW), the promotion of legislation to assist victims of trafficking, and the protection of gender-based persecution as a grounds for asylum. While assisting with many public policy initiatives, Tahirih played a leadership role in advocacy efforts to ensure police protection for immigrants and spearheaded the Campaign to End Exploitation by International Marriage Brokers.

Campaign To End the Exploitation and Abuse of Women by International Marriage Brokers and their Clients

The Tahirih Justice Center has launched a multi-track campaign to help protect women who are recruited by international marriage brokers (“IMBs”, also known as “mail-order bride” agencies) from abuse and to call the industry to account for the heightened risks of violence that its business model creates. In addition to providing direct services to women abused by husbands they met through IMBs, the Tahirih Justice Center has also engaged in extensive education and outreach on the problem of abuse in “brokered” marriages, including a presentation in June at the “Women Working to Make a Difference” Conference of the Institute for Women’s Policy Research.

The cornerstone of the Campaign, however, is federal legislation entitled “The International Marriage Broker Regulation Act of 2003” (S. 1455/H.R. 2949), introduced July 25, 2003, by Senator Maria Cantwell and Representative Rick Larsen. Both legislators are from Washington State, which passed state regulations on the industry after two highly publicized and brutal murders of young women from the Philippines and Kyrgyzstan by husbands they had met through IMBs. The federal bill seeks to ensure that a foreign woman recruited by an IMB has important information regarding the marital and criminal past of her prospective husband and her legal rights should she find herself in an abusive relationship. The Tahirih Justice Center helped draft the bill and is working with a broad-based coalition of human rights organizations, women’s rights groups, law firms, religious coalitions, and social justice organizations nationwide to ensure its passage.

Early activities in this federal legislative campaign included inaugurating a “sign-on” drive to contact other legal and social services providers working with battered immigrant women to garner their support and to learn from their own experiences of this problem. Over 80 like-minded organizations across the country had voiced their support for the legislation by fall 2003, including Amnesty International, Gabriela Network USA, the Family Violence Prevention Fund, the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, and the Center for Women Policy Studies—and those numbers continue to climb. The former General Counsel of the Immigration and Naturalization Service, Bo Cooper, a member of Tahirih’s Board of Directors, also spoke out in favor of the legislation.

In the summer of 2003, Tahirih also conducted research into the international matchmaking industry’s size and practices and the nature and scope of the problem of abuse in IMB marriages. Tahirih identified nearly 400 websites operated by U.S.-based IMBs, indicating a steep increase since a 1999 INS report’s estimate of 200 IMBs. Perhaps not surprisingly, then, Tahirih also learned that of 75 legal service providers representing battered immigrant women nationwide, 55% had assisted women who met their abusers through IMBs—confirming that Tahirih’s experience is not unique. Many of the men were repeat abusers who habitually use IMBs to find their next victims.

Except that someone can count websites, none, I mean NONE of these statistics are verifiable.  And relying on them as collected by Tahirih is like relying on statistics from GM that Americans prefer SUV gas-guzzlers so that is the reason they need more subsidies.

Advocacy groups that get taxpayer money for "protecting" foreign women and the thoughtless media call foreign woman a "mail order bride" if she met her husband via internet.  This is American imperialism, it is denigrating, insulting and portrays the women as helpless fools.

Unfortunately the legislators who enact laws often rely on information provided by non profits groups and special interests.  The well intended vision of these organizations often become tainted by the prospect of ever increasing amounts of money that the politicans who sympathize with these groups will throw at them. In their quest and thirst for every increasing amounts of money their original cause and purpose becomes sidetracked into oblivion. The next step in this degenerative process involves fraud and corruption. It may take some time however before their criminal activity is discovered because the liberal media will protect them and publish stories aligned with their causes perpetuating the problem far worse. Don't count on any miracles from the government regulators either. They are prevented from prosecuting non profit charities who engage in criminal activity(reference ACORN) because of political pressure or sheer incompetence (reference the Madoff scandal).

That's about all I can add for now.
Keep the pressure up.
Cheers and best wishes.
