Pastor cleared in IRS probe

May 19, 2008|H.G. Reza

A Southern Baptist pastor investigated by the IRS for his endorsement of GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee said Sunday he was cleared of wrongdoing.

Wiley S. Drake said he was notified Thursday that he did not violate his church's tax-exempt status when he used church letterhead and a church-affiliated radio show to support the former Arkansas governor.

"I had personally endorsed him. The fact that I used church letterhead to announce it didn't mean I was acting on behalf of the church," Drake said. "I said I was endorsing him, not we."
