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.

Four South Florida tourists are suing Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, claiming they consumed live bugs that contaminated their lettuce wraps.

Cynthia Walker, Jeoffrey Walker, Brittany Walker Figueroa, for herself and her daughter, Bella Figueroa, are seeking in excess of $15,000 in damages for loss of enjoyment of life, earnings and medical expenses after becoming "extremely sick" from eating the lettuce wraps. According to news reports, their 90-page lawsuit contains photos of bugs crawling on the lettuce wraps.

A Disney spokeswoman responded to the suit with a written statement: “Enjoying high-quality meals in clean and safe restaurants is an important part of a Walt Disney World Resort vacation. We do not believe the claimed illnesses were a result of the guests’ dining experiences, and we will defend against these allegations in court.”
