Everybody knows the college football bowl system is corrupt. Here’s the proof.
A political action committee called Playoff PAC is claiming in a report today that several college football bowl officials are abusing tax law by taking excessive salaries and perks while lobbying politicians and claiming tax-exempt status.
Playoff PAC used six lawyers and an accountant, working for free, to scour thousands of pages of documents and tax returns. They plan on filing an IRS complaint against the directors of the Sugar, Orange and Fiesta Bowls.
Playoff PAC points out that Fiesta Bowl director John Junker made over $600,000 last year. (This blog has previously written about how corrupt Junker is.) That average salary of a CEO running a “non-profit” the size of the Fiesta Bowl is $180,000 per-year.
