[from New Jersey Herald]

Two watchdog organizations make different complaints about People for the
Ethical Treatment of Animals, but their unified message questions the
integrity of the Norfolk-based animal rights group.

Ron Arnold, executive vice president of the Center for the Defense of Free
Enterprise, said, “We believe the evidence shows that PETA’s leaders and
personnel have been involved in criminal activities of such a magnitude
for such a length of time that they have no legal right to a tax exemption.”

Jeff Kerr, general counsel for PETA, responded to Arnold’s statement.
“That is completely ludicrous and they’ve known about it for a long time,”
said Kerr, Monday. “Everything it (PETA) does is directly related to
trying to help end the suffering and exploitation of animals. Everything
we do is consistent with the charitable mission of PETA.”
