HSUS: Money Talks, But It Also Lies

HSUS: MONEY TALKS, BUT IT ALSO LIES

HSUS Motto

In a recent statement made following their $15.75 million RICO case settlement with Feld Entertainment, Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) CEO Wayne Pacelle stated defiantly that he was 100% confident that the money used to pay the settlement would be covered by their insurance, and absolutely no donor money would be used.

That’s the kind of statement one makes when there is no fear of reprisal. HSUS supporters tend not to focus so much on “truths”, usually opting for whatever “sounds good”. Pacelle, ever the puppet master, can manipulate his followers into believing whatever he wants them to believe.

The question still remains, how will HSUS pay for their portion of the $15.75 million RICO settlement?

Pacelle says they have insurance coverage for this type of litigation. If in fact they do, why did HSUS previously sue their own liability insurance company, National Union Fire Insurance Company of Pittsburgh, for refusing to support HSUS in the litigation against Feld last year?

Regardless, the money still has to come from somewhere, and for a Non-Profit like HSUS the only answer is donor money, which supporters donated under the presumption that they’ve supported a charity to help displaced cats and dogs, not fund radical efforts and lose millions in court settlements.

Not only did HSUS refuse to be apologetic in the wake of the RICO case, but Wayne Pacelle continued in the usual misleading of HSUS donors.

HSUS is no stranger to financial deception. Even members of Congress have called for the IRS to investigate HSUS’s 501 (c)3 tax standing. How did the IRS handle this, as well as the efforts by HSUS to conceal how much they’ve actually spent on lobbying efforts nation-wide? As far as we can tell, not very well, considering Lois Lerner, former head of IRS tax exempt groups, also happened to be a member of HSUS.

But, if HSUS were ever in trouble with the IRS and had to pay fines, they could always just dip into their offshore accounts. Yes, HSUS has over $26 million of reported “investments” stored in the Cayman Islands.

Do you think HSUS donors would continue sending $19/mon if they found their support contributed to overseas investment accounts?

A multitude of shady practices are being employed by HSUS in order to keep the flow of donation money strong. The animal rights organization half-heartedly covers its tracks by saying anything to get out of sticky situations. You could say that their new motto is, “If you can’t buy your way out of trouble, go ahead and do it, and then talk normally as if nothing ever happened.”
