    Oh, ok...So everyone looses the tax exempt status eh? I'll take you at your word..........For now.
    Anybody know why they just didn't file for 527s? Would have removed any concern, and they could have devoted 100% of their donations and efforts to politics.

    501(c)(4)s ARE FORBIDDEN BY STATUTE TO ENGAGE IN POLITICAL ACTIVITY.

    The LAW says EXCLUSIVELY social welfare. An IRS rule changed it to PRIMARILY social welfare.

    The groups in question were trying to obtain anonymity for their donors by filing for 501(c)(4) status. That is the ONLY DIFFERENCE from a 527. That and 527s are allowed to be 100% political. The RNC is a 527.

    Y'all don't want Mexicans to get drivers licenses but your fine with political groups obtaining permits to which they are not legally entitled, and call attempts to prevent them from abusing the system, abuse.

    Sherrod Brown comes to mind.

    Convict and execute immediately upon accusation.

    There is no corruption in the Obama White House and Treasury. Obama and the Treasury checked themselves and found nothing.

    Congressman Trey Gowdy asks the million dollar question: If there was not a "smidgen of corruption" then why did Lois Lerner plead the 5th in her congressional testimony?

    Wrong.

    "Inappropriate" implies a moral judgement. But that is NOT what is meant in this instance.

    Using words as opposed to examining the activities for compliance with the law is what was termed "inapporpriate".

    A shovel is an inappropriate tool for raking leaves.

    Treasury wants ALL groups checked for political intervention and wants concrete rules as to what "primary activity" means. Along with defining "political intervention" activities.

    Treasury could have used the word "inadequate" to express its opinion without inappropriately giving the impression it was making a moral judgement that conservative groups had been singled out for mistreatment, a conclusion the report does not make. It is clear that of meant that using keywords allows groups that were involved in substantial election intervention to slip by while latching onto groups that were not involved in substantial election intervention. Nowhere does it indicate partisan wrongdoing took place, or even appears to have had.

    Hell, Obama said he would get to the bottom of this. He lied apparently.

    Imagine the profound implications that comes with a President using Fed agency's to deny Americans their Constitutional rights ......Wow.

    Not just the IRS. The FBI ( DOJ ) and OSHA too

    Thats why Liberals run to these threads in a wasted attempt to staunch the bleeding.

    Its seriousky bad news
    You do realize no one was denied their right to free speech, right?

    This was about the privelege to operate tax free.

    Tax free status is not a right. Check the Constitution.
