    on this one.  If entities with names like "Republican Outreach"The Democratic Caretakers" that were not actually affiliated with the Republicans or Dems were filing for nonprofit status, I suspect they might be looked at a bit more carefully, too.  Scams abound in the nonprofit area.  People are willing to whip out their wallets when they hear a phrase that appeals to them emotionally.  For someone to use the term teaparty in their title would be an Excellent way to scam money out of rightwingers.  They're the ones being protected, for god's sake.  What the hell was wrong with the IRS targeting a name that was clearly suspicious under the circumstances at that time????
