Charity regulators use anonymity to cloak failures to follow the law

I’ve said it many times, charity regulators often fail to cite to any law supporting their demands made on registrants.  Often their demands are either unsupported by the law or rely on lopsided and aggressive interpretations of the law.

Whenever you receive such a demand, your first reaction may be to reply by asking for citation to the legal authority supporting the demand.  Otherwise, we merely allow charity regulators to make up authority, which enables them to violate your rights.  Don’t let them get away with it.  If they have legal authority supporting their demand, they should disclose it.  It’s called due process of law.

The other annoying practice charity regulators employ is they send demands anonymously; that is, no individual charity regulator puts his or her name on the demand.  This anonymity makes it easier for charity regulators to cloak their failures to follow the law.  It wasn’t always this way.

These people work for the government.  They are not entitled to privacy in the conduct of their official actions.

We read about “shadowy” groups.  Well, now we have shadowy bureaucrats.  Given how charity regulators claim their jobs are needed to promote transparency, it’s rather hypocritical of them to operate anonymously, don’t you think?

Come on, charity regulators, tell us who you are.  What are you hiding?
