Gubernatorial Candidate’s Website Accidentally Says Contributions Are ‘Tax Deductible’

Gubernatorial candidate Scott Angelle has a little problem with his website.

The Advocate found today that Angelle’s campaign site said contributions were “tax deductible,” by mistake. Campaign contributions are never tax deductible.

“Contribute to the Scott Angelle 2015 campaign for Governor of Louisiana. Make a tax deductible donation now. Go Angelle,” the site said. But, Angelle said he’d fix the problem.

After the wording was brought to his attention by The Advocate today, Angelle said he would instruct staff to fix the issue “asap.” Contributions to political campaigns are not tax deductible (which is noted in a disclaimer down on the page).

The same text, though, shows up when you Google search the site. See here: scott angelle 2
