Jerry Moran calls his spot in a sweet D.C. town home a matter of faith

A student at Washburn University asked Moran about the C Street house on Tuesday. Operated by a secretive outfit called the Fellowship, the house provides meals and lodging to conservative Christian members of Congress. The house became a punch line when a number of the politicians associated with it were tarnished in sex scandals.

In February, a group of mainline ministers in Columbus, Ohio, asked the IRS to revoke the house’s tax-exempt status out of concern an “exclusive residential club for powerful officials may be masquerading as a church.” Last fall, the District of Columbia began taxing two-thirds of the property.
