    State Attorney General Orders Trump Foundation to Cease Raising Money in New York

    By STEVE EDEROCT. 3, 2016

    The office of New York Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman has issued a “notice of violation” to Donald J. Trump’s foundation, ordering it to immediately stop soliciting donations in New York.

    The letter, which was sent on Friday and released on Monday morning by Mr. Schneiderman’s office, said that its charities bureau had determined that the Donald J. Trump Foundation had been fund-raising in New York this year when it was not registered to do so under state law.

    “The Trump Foundation must immediately cease soliciting contributions or engaging in any other fund-raising activities in New York,” wrote James Sheehan, the chief of the charities bureau.

    Mr. Trump’s foundation has come under increasing scrutiny amid questions about his fulfillment of large charitable pledges and his lack of financial support in recent years.

    Minor administrative error. No big deal.

    Or intentional to avoid the audits they would be required to submit to. Considering how Trump used the money donated to his Foundation, I'm just going to have to assume, like with his tax returns, that he is trying to hide something.

    The stoopid son shares the same accountant for both foundations.
    1 gets the audits the other doesn't.
    Yeah it's a "minor" administrative oversight.

    Trump begs citizens for their money, pays no taxes, brags about it...then complains about poor citizens not paying taxes. The GOP has lost the right to complain about welfare recipients forever.

    Seriously guys, do you think that this is the election that the GOP pulls its head out of its ass?

    I thought for sure that was going to happen in '12, and they were on there way to reforming their party, when all a sudden, they lurched the wheel to the side again.

    I'm tired and concerned that the Democratic party is the party of the adults. I really hope that the GOP is able to make a respectable return to politics, before our nation is doomed forever.

    Of course it was/is intentional.

    Trump’s son Eric has his own foundation, also headquartered in New York, which raises money from the public through an annual golf tournament.
    Unlike his father’s charity, however, the Eric Trump Foundation has registered to solicit funds in the state and files an annual audit report. The two Trump foundations share an accountant, Donald Bender of the firm WeiserMazars. A spokeswoman for the firm declined to comment on Thursday.
