Government filings show that a dark-money nonprofit allied with House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi, has been running late in her home state of California for months, and has been threatened with suspension or possible cancellation.
Delinquency means that Pelosi’s affiliated group, House Majority Forward, has been barred from soliciting or accepting contributions to the Golden State, where many of the major Democratic donors live.
While it’s impossible to determine whether the nonprofit has raised money in California since it went out of compliance, the group reported having a San Francisco fundraiser on its payroll on its most recent tax form.

House Majority Forward received a warning from the California attorney general’s office in June 2021, saying the group had failed to submit all required documents and must do so within 60 days.
In January, the AG’s California office sent another letter to House Majority Forward saying it was “listed as delinquent” for failing to submit required reports.
A delinquent California nonprofit cannot operate or accept funds in the state because it remains out of compliance.
“The organization listed as delinquent is not in good standing and is prohibited from engaging in conduct that requires registration, including soliciting or disbursing charitable funds,” the letter said. The organization may also be subject to sanctions and its registration may be suspended or canceled by the registry.
House Majority Forward was still shown as a “delinquent” on the attorney general’s website as of Thursday afternoon. The group did not respond to a Fox News Digital inquiry, including whether they accepted any contributions from Californians while in the lagging state.

House Majority Forward was founded in Washington, D.C. in 2019 as an affiliate of the Pelosi-aligned majority PAC, which serves to keep Democrats in the House of Representatives. The two entities share employees.
The nonprofit has raised tens of millions of dollars since its inception. Its latest tax models show that it raised $29.7 million from undisclosed shareholders in 2020, an increase of $21.5 million from its founding year.
The tax forms also show it paid three fundraisers throughout 2020, including Lisa Presta in San Francisco, who raised money for the group through phone calls and in-person events, the disclosures say. It is unclear if she is currently working for the non-profit organization.
Meanwhile, House Majority Forward’s PAC has secured large sums of Californians for the 2022 election.

The House majority PAC has so far received more than 13,000 contributions from Californians totaling about $9 million, according to a review of FEC filings.
The most important California contributor is LinkedIn co-founder and senior Democratic leader Reed Hoffman, who gave $1.95 million to PAC. He is among the major contributors to the House Majority Committee for the midterm elections.
