Engaging in politics all -- Your green lit right in there this involves a politician named Brian Schweitzer Brian Schweitzer was a governor of the state of Montana from 2005.
Until just recently January of this year.
And he's a big player Democratic Party they want him to run for the US senate that could shift the whole.
Source of -- well you know who's in control of the senate because Republicans want the senate.
He set up an organization called the council for sustainable America how do we know he set that up because.
They have the same post office box as he does so in in Helena Montana.
So it organization name accounts -- sustainable America this is a passion and they're allowed to conduct business but they.
Made a big contribution 300000.
Dollar contribution 2010.
To a group with a very similar name American sustainability.
That's on Connecticut avenue in Washington DC 1666.
Connecticut avenue suite 500.
And we have been unable to find out exactly what this organization does.
Where it is exactly because we went to that org is -- we went to 1666.
Connecticut avenue suite 500 it's a nice building their a lot of offices inside.
A lot of corporate office but nothing.
That we could find about the American sustainability project.
What -- they spend money on well that's a good question we're not exactly sure what they spend money on most of it is expenses they have about.
90000 dollars or six years we 65000.
Dollars in expenses and that's about the only thing they're spending money out of this fat -- not the interesting thing is -- the woman who's the director and president of -- according to Baird and -- 990 of the 501 C four is -- Constance Millstein Connie Millstein is a huge bundle alert for President Obama.
She is from a real estate family in New York.
She -- the Jefferson Hotel -- -- she she could tell that by Washington -- politicking right and it is -- -- and yet it is a 501 C -- organization -- -- supposed to spend no more than 40% of their time on politics -- but -- we did it seems clear that this is just a political vehicle or a Brian Schweitzer who wants to run through the playing the same sort of shell game that corporations play offshore to hide money -- but in this country the high political -- -- well idealistic thing is this is what the president was accusing conservatives have to -- 2010.
When he went on a tirade against these 501 C fours and that a lot of people say led the higher arrest to investigate the more carefully the -- part.
Well that's exactly what this organization appears to be dealt -- so he was projecting.
It you know that's psychological term when you -- you and you accuse somebody else -- doing what you're really doing well what does all political trick that some people do better than all right.
This this also was fast -- wasn't the -- -- this wasn't apps as far as we can tell.

-- -- founding fathers didn't countenance the system with the higher arrested.
-- targeting conservative groups and attacking them that the way they are.

And by the way I should have mentioned it -- and I would used to work together Wall Street -- fifteen years ago she was writing stories in the Wall Street Journal about how the iris has been used.
Too often as a political tool that was supposed to have ended with Richard Nixon because they had a whole series of laws to end that practice.
But apparently it's been picked up again by this administration she was the one who really spotlighted this.
I have a lot of well.
The a lot of people haven't picked up on her there unfortunately resurfacing but the question is for the viewers then what's next step -- besides David has been investigated.
-- how many people representing America on this new world record we'll look at this it's OK there's something wrong there's what we're gonna continue to argue after all but will anybody else hold them accountable within the government's -- Every time by the way we have tried to call the American sustainability project there -- a law office in the same suite 500 of 166 Connecticut -- They've never heard of it the reception has never heard of it as I said we send a reporter there to knock an -- they've never heard of it so we're trying as best as we can to figure out who represents this organization who.
What they do and as far as we can tell all they do.
Is hold cash for Brian Schweitzer -- -- rule breaking.
And political money laundering was called back at David as that they will find out -- we'll find out -- you know it isn't over for RS official.
