According to CBS News, Sen. Charles Grassley (R-IA), the ranking Republican on the Senate Finance Committee, is investigating 6 televangelist ministries for financial misconduct. He reportedly wants to make sure that the ministries are spending their flock's money in compliance with the requirements of their IRS tax exempt status, rather than using it to pay for the evangelists' personal lavish lifestyles. The six ministries under investigation are led by Paula White, Joyce Meyer, Creflo Dollar, Eddie Long, Kenneth Copeland and Benny Hinn.
In an interview with Newsweek, Richard Land, a leading evangelical who serves as president of the Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, said that evangelicals will support a third party candidate if Rudy Giuliani is the Republican presidential nominee. After putting George W. Bush in office twice, the Christian right refuses to support any candidate whose anticipated policies could diminish their power and influence in the Republican Party. Land had this to say about the matter, "... I have been in too many discussions over the last 15 years where evangelical leaders have said, 'The one thing we will never allow to happen is for the Republican Party to take us for granted the way the Democratic Party too often takes the African-American community for granted.'"
