Great post!!The rightwing propaganda machinery is in full swing with their usual hysterics trying to make political hay out of something they caused in the first place. It’s all happening as a result of the SCOTUS’s “Citizens United” decision, turning corporations into people and money into speech. Literally thousands of politically motivated groups sprouted up across the country, inspired by the t-bag party, applying for tax-exempt (501) status by claiming they are engaged in political research only. In fact, guess who was the first one to apply – you guessed it, none other than uber-troglodyte Karl Rove (Crossroads GPS). The IRS has a duty to investigate questionable applicants! The GOPer’s notion that the IRS would try to determine whether an organization is likely to be political without taking into account kind of the inherently political nature of the application is akin to tying your hands behind your back.
Why are republicans so scared of the IRS looking to make sure no one is using a tax exempt status to hide political money??
Republicans only want to be able to investigate democrats, but when they are looked into they cry like bitches.
We're used to it.... Lots of the republican crying type here.
