Oh, the scandal that some (c)(4) organizations had their veracity questioned by the IRS!
There is a scandal with regard to (c)(4) entities for sure, but it is not the focus of the current furor by the Grand Oligarch Party. The real scandal is that ANY (c)(4) entity is allowed to collect and disburse ANY funds for partisan political purposes! Anyone with a lick of sense knows that ‘Crossroads GPS’ had no more ‘social service’ function than does a sniper’s ghillie suit.
Using tax payers money to promote candidates from the right, center or left is an outrage. Therein is the real scandal. The current Tea Party uproar is very much a tempest in a teapot.

RGP, Right-on, as always. While reading this and fine-tuning the manuscript for the Iowa MFSA, just forwarded, I realized anew that your success in goading and guiding me out of the wilderness of Luddite-ism is a priceless gift: THANK YOU! Not sure where I’d be or what I’d do without it. Soon, CJS
Once again, you are right on!
Thanks, Cindy! My post isn’t a very original notion, but needs to be said in any number of ways.
We just had Jane Brown here as our overnight guest for a couple of nights as she traveled East, stopping in our part of the State to visit an aging aunt. Great time; good to see BIBE friends. While she was here we toured the ‘Cedar Bog’ a State nature preserve near Urbana, Ohio, which isn’t really a bog but rather a fen.
Hope you are still having a great time with all the swamp folk and critters.
