From the Tampa Bay Times:
When a Florida pastor posted a political sign outside his church while it served as a voting precinct on Election Day, it caused a stir. Still, it broke no election rules.
Nine days later, as Florida continues trying to determine who won what race, that partisan sign offers a lesson in why churches aren’t supposed to be politicking in the first place.
The problem with the sign, experts told the Tampa Bay Times, is a tax problem.
The Internal Revenue Services prohibits tax-exempt non-profits, such as churches, from intervening for or against candidates in elections.
