    Or paranoid ones. Even IF the IRS "scandal" turns out to be real, the idea that it "swayed the election" is insane.

    You gotta love a source whose mission statement says the following: "The goal of TruthRevolt is simple: unmask leftists in the media for who they are, destroy their credibility with the American public, and devastate their funding bases."

    Yeah, that sounds legitimate.

    It was ACORN who stole the election for Obama.

    Wrong answer, my friend...

    ) Interestingly, the IRS says that donations to 501(c) (4) groups can be deducted as business expenses.

    Which need to be filed in April. Your point is?

    That's Ben Shapiro's little project. He's a Breitbart disciple.

    Why didn't that happen?
    Because the IRS was not equipped to deal with the influx and abuse of 501c4s in the aftermath of citizens united.

    Lets be honest, and drop all of this tiresome partisan bullsh*t. This entire "scandal" is about protecting the anonymity of the super rich who want free speech without any repercussions. You support this ONLY because these uber rich donors support candidates that play for the Republicans, which happen to be your favorite sports team. If these uber rich donors were supporting Democrats you'd be screaming bloody murder, especially if they were advocating the same positions.
    501(c)(4) is a tax exempt status.

    Let's be honest and cut the tiresome partisan bullsh*t. You are only not bothered by this because of the ideology of those targeted.
