Do some nursing homes abuse tax-exempt status?

Iowa

Des Moines, IA - Register reporter Clark Kauffman's story on nursing-home fines included information that should be of interest to Sen. Charles Grassley: Some nonprofit nursing homes operating in Iowa are paying high CEO salaries and big bucks to board members while enjoying exemption from taxes.

Grassley has a reputation as a nonprofit cop. He appreciates the work the organizations do, but expects them to be honest and reasonable.

Now at least a few "charity" nursing homes right here in Iowa deserve his attention - because something is wrong.
