I did a charity search at irs.gov for them and it did not get a match - so I don’t have a EIN or proof that they are actually a 501c3 charity.

You don't have to make money to enjoy corporate status. The interesting thing is whether or not Clear Channel and Interstate know they just donated billboards to a for-profit corporation.

Aint this a can of worms?
Isn't there a limit to how much a company can spend on electioneering?
Did the two companies think they were donating to a charitable org?
Are these companies willing to alienate their customers' customers?
This may be fun to watch develop.
