In a post on Thursday, I documented an investigation into a large number of real estate transactions centering around Terry Jones and Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville, Florida. More information has now emerged in my study of publicly available information. In this post, I will show that a large mortgage taken out on the Dove World Outreach property in 2006 was mis-represented in the Form 990 that was filed with the IRS for that reporting period. The executed mortgage agreement on file with the Alachua County Clerk of Court website indicates that the mortgage was for $285,000, while a mortgage with the same agreement date and from the same bank was reported on the Form 990 as being only for $113,885.

What so-called “purists” actually believe is that these groups should not be raising money from the public to act as watchdogs of the oil companies, and then take money from the oil companies to rubber stamp their green washing efforts and shield them from criticism when they richly deserve it.
In other words, no scamming.
