|In November, ThinkProgress exclusively reported that Karl Rove's Crossroads GPS, a tax-exempt 501(c)(4) "social welfare organization" with an official address in Warrenton, VA, has never registered as a charitable organization with the Commonwealth of Virginia, as appears was legally required. Following this report, Virginia's Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services sent a letter to Crossroads GPS warning them of their legal obligation.
The letter, sent on December 20, 2012, notes that, "in accordance with - 57-49 of the Code of Virginia, [Crossroads GPS] should register with our office." It states that Virginia law requires "all organizations that intend to solicit for a charitable purpose in Virginia to register or apply for an exemption from annual registration, if applicable, prior to any charitable solicitation activity in Virginia."
