Wyoming Rep. “Slaughterhouse” Sue Wallis endorses gambling with Truck Raffle

Straight form the Horse's Heart

Win a truck from Wyoming Rep. Sue Wallis so you can drive your horse to slaughter
Houston – (SFHH)  Wyoming Representative Sue Wallis has issued an official endorsement of gambling (see below) through her questionable nonprofit 501c (3) organization, United Organizations of the Horse.  Rep. Wallis also implicates another alleged 501c (3) nonprofit, the Horseman’s Front, in this plan to generate funds for organizations that are in possible violation of IRS 501c (3) nonprofit requirements.
A visit to either of the organization’s websites indicates that both groups are actively engaged in lobbying efforts, right down to authoring legislation, to further their personal agendas to bring back the predatory and inhumane industry of horse slaughter to the United States.  IRS law clearly states that only 15% of a nonprofit’s time and expenditures can be spent on lobbying purposes and the purpose must not be aimed at furthering the cause of any one individual or associated businesses, see below:
To be tax-exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, an organization must be organized and operated exclusively for exempt purposes set forth in section 501(c)(3), and none of its earnings may inure to any private shareholder or individual. In addition, it may not be an action organization, i.e., it may not attempt to influence legislation as a substantial part of its activities and it may not participate in any campaign activity for or against political candidates.
Organizations described in section 501(c)(3) are commonly referred to as charitable organizations. Organizations described in section 501(c)(3), other than testing for public safety organizations, are eligible to receive tax-deductible contributions in accordance with Code section 170.
The organization must not be organized or operated for the benefit of private interests, and no part of a section 501(c)(3) organization’s net earnings may inure to the benefit of any private shareholder or individual. If the organization engages in an excess benefit transaction with a person having substantial influence over the organization, an excise tax may be imposed on the person and any organization managers agreeing to the transaction.
Section 501(c)(3) organizations are restricted in how much political and legislative (lobbying) activities they may conduct. For a detailed discussion, see Political and Lobbying Activities. For more information about lobbying activities by charities, see the article Lobbying Issues; for more information about political activities of charities, see the FY-2002 CPE
The intent of David Duquette’s “Horseman’s Front” is glaringly obvious as he and his associates own horse breeding operations and rather than be responsible and control horse breeding on the front end they prefer to manage it on the backside by throwing their “unwanted” horses onto the slaughter pile so as to maintain higher prices for their equine commodity.
Rep. Wallis’ motives and issues were clearly defined in the Editorial “What Sue Wallis’ proposed HORSE ACT of 2009 Really Means for Horses” written by equine welfare advocate Vicki Tobin.
What remains unclear is how Rep. Wallis’ actions and activities will reflect upon her political  credibility and long term viability within her home state of Wyoming.

A group of us plan to be there to help promote the raffle and our mission. No more than 2,000 tickets will be sold. At $100 per raffle ticket, we should be able to raise some substantial funds. The United Horsemen’s Front has already seen a great response. In fact, people who will not be attending the NFR have been contacting us to purchase tickets.
