Executive summary: Ohio Restoration Project

The pastor of Fairfield Christian Church in Lancaster, Ohio (population a mere 35,335 per the 2000 census), Johnson's political influence is far greater than it would ordinarily be, because of Ohio's crucial place in the national electoral process. He founded the Ohio Restoration Project, which boasts a mailing list of 400,000 and plays on the edge of what is permissible for a nonprofit organization. A list of 31 Ohio pastors -- many from mainstream denominations -- filed a complaint with the Internal Revenue Service to look into the project's tax exemption, on the basis that it engages in politics forbidden to such organizations. A number of ORP's activities seem to be supportive of candidate Kenneth Blackwell for Ohio Governor.
