A major problem with liberal leniency in judicial matters is that when you allow known miscreants to run loose, they can be relied on to continue engaging in antisocial activities. A particularly egregious example is Hollyweird glitterpig Jane Fonda, who earned a date with a firing squad for treason during the Vietnam War when she traveled to Hanoi to propagandize for the enemy, even posing laughingly with anti-aircraft guns used to kill American pilots. To the surprise of no one familiar with her character, it appears she has again run afoul of the law:
According to documents first unveiled by The Smoking Gun, the Fonda Foundation – of which the 75-year-old actress serves as president and chairman of the board – hasn’t donated a dime to charity over the last five years, according to its filed federal tax returns.
The last year her foundation donated money was 2006: “one single $1,000 donation to the Atlanta Obstetric and Gynecology Society.” I’m guessing they specialize in abortions.
The IRS requires that private foundations donate at least 5% of their assets annually. But that notoriously politicized agency is most likely too busy putting screws to conservatives to follow up on a fellow traveler like Ms Fonda.
Raising more eyebrows is the alleged notion that the group has attempted to grow its financial value through the stock market, as evidenced by the 2011 filing, which lists 166 separate trades totaling around $2200.
Maybe this limousine Leninist is beginning to see the value of capitalism.
Hanoi Jane’s lawyer claims she meets legal requirements because of money donated by her foundation back in the day. The odds of any repercussions are slim.
