Description

This pre-election story examines "whether involvement by area churches in local political races potentially violated rules governing tax-exempt organizations." The reporter details the activity of "a political committee largely staffed by area clergy, who have litmus tests on politico-religious views" and have publicly endorsed local candidates. The story reveals that the church group - called Community Impact Committee - has been formed "in an apparent effort to get around the constitutional wall that separates church from state."
