    So going by this NYT article you feel that everyone was treated equally and fairly?

    Why is it off topic? How were conservatives victimized?

    The conservatives are using the nonprofit code more that the liberals. Lets have sunlight so we know who is donating to political campaigns?

    LOL !!!

    Oh man, Mark Levin, who's the President of the Landmark Legal Foundation is explaining how his Law Suite Against the IRS brought out whistle blowers who worked at the IRS who are going to testify that the IRS attempted to destroy third party request from Democrats under Clinton and Obama that wanted these Conservative groups checked out.

    attempted, is the key word as apparently enough survived to bury the Democrats happy asses.

    Time for some Democrats to go to prison and the entire corrupt party to be tagged as a thug organization.

    We don't know that conservatives are using it more. We only know that conservatives were questioned more. In politics I believe in unlimited donations with full disclosure. For non-political groups (who may occasionally do something political) I believe in unlimited donations with no disclosure requirement.

    Does Karl Rove's American Crossroads GPS deserve the non profit status?
