American Samizdat

Sunday, November 26, 2006. *
The churches reported today are:

* Bethel AME Church, Cambridge, Md.: The church hosted a rally for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Martin O*Malley and other Democratic candidates on Nov. 2. O*Malley and others sought votes and were introduced by the pastor. Churches may host educational forums featuring all candidates but not partisan rallies.

* Sioux City Baptist Church, Sioux City, Iowa: On Oct. 29, the church made available biased *voter guides* produced by the Iowa Christian Alliance, a 501(c)(4) organization. The guides violated several standards established by the IRS and were clearly stacked to favor Republican hopefuls.

* Mount Ennon Baptist Church, Clinton, Md.: The church*s pastor attacked Republican senatorial candidate Michael Steele from the pulpit Nov. 5 while Steele*s opponent, Benjamin Cardin, sat in the front row.

* Lakeview Assembly of God, Hot Springs, Ark.: The church hosted Republican gubernatorial candidate Asa Hutchinson on Oct. 15. It placed an ad in the local newspaper inviting people to hear Hutchinson speak, identifying him as the GOP candidate. Hutchinson*s Democratic opponent was not on the program.
