Pamela Mann Quoted in Talking Points Memo Re: Trump Foundation Practices
Tax-Exempt Organizations partner Pamela A. Mann was quoted in the September 23 Talking Points Memo article “Why Trump's Shady Foundation Practices Are A Major No-No In The Charity World.” Addressing the Washington Post’s report that Trump had misused foundation funds for business and personal transactions, Pamela Mann, chair of the firm’s Tax-Exempt Organizations Group, said “it was “conceivable” that an attorney general could seek to dissolve a foundation for self-dealing, if they can prove “it’s not really acting like a charitable foundation.” “The philosophy behind these rules is that the grant of a tax exemption is a privilege. It’s something valuable that the government gives and there are strings attached to that grant of privilege,” she said. “The attorney general has the authority to investigate those kinds of violations and seek monetary remedies, seek removal of director in appropriate cases, and pretty much everything in between,” Mann said. “I think it’s conceivable they could also seek to involuntarily dissolve a foundation because it's not really acting like a charitable foundation.”
