The U.S. Tax Court handed down bad news to a California group this week, agreeing with the Internal Revenue Service that Families Against Government Slavery shouldn’t be granted tax-exempt status as an educational organization.According to court documents, the group began organizing in 2003, and had as its mission the goal of educating the public about the alleged slavery and entrapment of Hollywood celebrities by government officials. The group’s activities consisted largely of public demonstrations made solely by its founder.
