Q. If a charity incorporated in this country has an Australian (for
example) affiliate that lobbies (according to United States
definitions of lobbying) and the affiliate shows up on the IRS 990
Form would its lobbying expenditures count against expenditure limits
in this country?
A. Yes, the affiliate's lobbying expenditures would count against the
expenditure limits of the charity incorporated in this country.

Do WMF chapters count as affiliates? (Does "charity" mean a 501(c)(3) thing?)
