Obama's Congressional Black Caucus Donation

In a previous blog post, we suggested that Obama likely did not make a legal mistake when he took a deduction for a $13,000 to "Congressional Black Caucus" because he must have meant to write "Congressional Black Caucus Foundation."  Well, apparently, Obama may have made  a legal mistake after all.  According to Professor Sarah Lawsky (George Washington University), when she contacted the NYT reporter about this error, the NYT reporter informed her that the donation was indeed to "Congressional Black Caucus" and not to "Congressional Black Caucus Foundation."  Stay tuned for more.....

Did you ever find out any more on Obama's so-called charitable doantion to the Congressional Black Caucus? Is that a legal deduction?

Also, can a taxpayer simply list "miscellaneous recognized charities" on your tax form, without breaking them out? I didn't know that.
