  •  If the word "party" is in the title of your group (2+ / 0-)

    shouldn't that be a flag for the reasonable person to investigate further whether that group's primary function is that of "social welfare" or politicking?  If your organization's name is an acronym for "taxed enough already" shouldn't that fact stimulate a degree of extra scrutiny?  If your organization is named after a tax revolt, wouldn't common sense call for extra attention?  If the words "progressive or liberal or democratic" wouldn't one expect an extra dose of scrutiny?  The real scandal is that so many orgs get the tax exemption for some very thin claims of promoting social welfare.  Apparently many of those that qualified for the perks of being a 501(c)4 have blatantly deviated from the no or limited anti-politicking rules.
