Abstract

Lloyd Hitoshi Mayer quoted in ProPublica article "New Tax Return Shows Karl Rove's Group Spent Even More On Politics Than It Said" by Kim Barker.

Lloyd Hitoshi Mayer, a law professor and associate dean at the University of Notre Dame who specializes in nonprofits and campaign finance, reviewed the Americans for Tax Reform documents at the request of ProPublica and said it was possible that the group was allocating overhead or other costs differently in its tax return than in its FEC filings.

"I do not see how any reasonable allocation differences could result in such a large disparity, however," Mayer said.
