- US IRS Raids Benny Hinn Ministries
United States federal agents have descended on the North Texas, headquarters of television evangelist, Benny Hinn, and taken boxes out of the offices, the Associated Press reports.
The search began at about 9 am on Wednesday at Hinn’s headquarters in the Dallas-Fort Worth suburb of Grapevine, near Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport. According to Hinn’s website, he was in Paris.
Lisa Slimak, spokeswoman for the U.S. attorney’s office in Dallas, said she was unable to confirm or deny the existence of an investigation. A message sent to Bennie Hinn Ministries went unanswered.
Hinn was one of six television evangelists investigated by the Senate Finance Committee in 2007. After three years, the committee made no definitive findings of wrongdoing.
