    And that is the abuse of conservative and Tea Party groups abusing the 501(c)(4) status.  The whole it is an "Obama scandal" and working up the rightwing echo chamber is to stop the IRS from continuing these investigations into the main funders of all the groups that sprung up after Citizens United.

    I suspect if the IRS continued the Koch Brothers, Sheldon Adelson and Karl Rove all would have been found to be the funders behind all these groups.  I believe Rove has spent $87.9 million on 501(c)(4) groups so far.  Since most are political groups and not promoting social welfare, status of these organizations would be revoked leaving rightwing puppet masters without these front organizations to promote their propaganda.
