There is none... yet.

Listen for the term "information laundering". If there is any scandal here, this is where it will be. Everything else is just noise because the fact of the matter is that conservative groups were literally flooding the system with applications for 501c4 status. OF COURSE they were going to be disproportionately scrutinized. This in itself is not a scandal and will never go beyond the IRS needing to revise it's procedure. However, if there is a connection between the IRS and parties associated with the DNC to provide information about these groups, this IS the stuff of Woodward and Bernstein.
