First Amendment Rights: Good News from the IRS on Donor Privacy

In this era of increased harassment and persecution of people on the basis of political viewpoints and First Amendment expression, there’s actually good news to report.

In fact, that positive development comes from none other than the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), which few people typically consider a font of good news.

Specifically, the IRS just announced a proposed rule to stop requiring nonprofit organizations to file what’s known as a Form 990 Schedule B, which exposes sensitive donor information not only to the federal government and potential rogues like former IRS official Lois Lerner, but also people who seek to access and use that information to target people on the basis of political belief.

A Portland, Oregon, man is suing Burger King claiming the fast food restaurant backed out of its promise to give him free food for life.

According to news reports, Curtis Brooner says he was involved in an incident in Oregon that resulted in him being locked in the bathroom. Brooner used his cellphone to call the Burger King number listed on his receipt, but the employees were unable to push the bathroom door open. Ultimately, a locksmith was called, and Brooner was freed. In his lawsuit, Brooner claims he was stuck in the bathroom for an hour and could hear employees and customers laughing at him through the door.

Brooner alleges the restaurant offered him free food for life as an apology, which it provided for several weeks and then the offer was withdrawn. Brooner is seeking just over $9,000 in damages, the cost of one burger meal a week for 22 years.

Michael Fuller, Brooner's attorney, told the media that his "client is still hopeful Burger King will do the right thing and honor its agreement."
