    or Republicans or Libertarian Party, would you be surprised that they were subject to scrutiny as political organizations, even if their attached documentation didn't detail any political activities?

    Again, I see that some groups with political affiliations flew under the radar, while Tea Party groups fell into the full glare of a newly organized office that subjected all those it invenstigated to more questions than they might have recieved in more seasoned hands. Clearly the criteria developed were too simplistic, which is why the IG report's outstanding request is that the office better document its reasons for classifying a group as potentially political.

    But I don't see anything in any of this that says "get those conservatives."
