Today, 02/16/2022, Survivors of Childhood Sex Abuse filed a Tax-Exempt Organization Complaint, IRS Form 13909, challenging the Archdiocese of New Orleans’ 501(c)(3) Nonprofit status, based on criminal activity regarding Federal Emergency Management Agency hurricane aid.
- The Archdiocese of New Orleans, hereafter referred to as “ANO,” collected $46 million more in hurricane aid than was defensible.
- The settlement agreement called for the ANO to pay a $1.01 million dollar fine.
- Paragraph 10 of the settlement agreement states that “ANO waives and shall not assert any defenses ANO may have to any criminal prosecution or administrative action…
In its current state, there is nothing good about the ANO. In addition to the institutional, systematic, and wholesale rape of our precious children, they are now fined by FEMA for fraudulent hurricane aid, which the tax payers of the United States fund through their tax dollars.
When considering this action, we concluded that victims and survivors of childhood sex abuse are taxpayers too. SCSA wants to make clear that this does not involve the Catholic Charities.
For further information or questions, please contact SCSA President Richard Windmann at 682-710-1965, or SCSA Public information Officer Richard Coon at 469-909-1648.
