TBN Televangelists Subject of Senate Probe
Apparently, good Republicans do exist. CBS News is reporting that Senator Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) has sent letters to mega-millionaire televangelists Paula White, Joyce Meyer, Creflo Dollar, Eddie Long, Kenneth Copeland and Benny Hinn asking they turn over all financial records within a month or risk losing their tax-exempt status after fielding complaints about their extravagant lifestyles (read our take on Copeland from 2005). The six appear on the Costa Mesa-based Trinity Broadcasting Network, the world's largest televangelical station and the ones with the luxurious headquarters across the 405 Freeway South Coast Plaza, a delicious (or divine?) statement on the eternal struggle between God and Mammon.
