Karl Rove’s and his organization Crossroads GPS may be known for a huge influx of what is considered dark money in the 2012 election cycle, but he’s unknown by the Vigrinia office he should have registered with, according to a new report at ThinkProgress.
As a 501(c)(4) organization, Crossroads GPS is registered with the Internal Revenue Service, but it is not registered as a charitable organization with the Commonwealth of Virginia where it lists its formal address.
ThinkProgress confirmed that no entity named Crossroads GPS or Crossroads Grassroots Policy Strategies, nor any entity with the tax identification number on Crossroads GPS’s tax filing, has ever registered with Virginia’s Office of Charitable and Regulatory Programs.
Rove is also under fire among many conservatives for not having delivered better results in the 2012 election after having spent $300 million on Republican candidates through Crossroads.
“We’ve got to carefully examine, as we did after 2010, an after-action report looking at everything with fresh eyes and questioning and figuring out what worked and what didn’t work,” Rove said.
