IRS Crackdown on Phony Charity Groups: You Missed a Spot
It's not just a spot; it's more of a giant shitstain on the Body Politic.
Rightwing politicians are still in the throes of their orchestrated outrage over the IRS' “chilling crackdown” on the tax-exempt non-profit status of Tea Party organizations. Meanwhile, the Orwellian-named Government Integrity Fund has contributed millions of dollars to Republican candidates. And YOU helped to finance this group's tax-deductible contributions. On top of that, because the IRS has recognized the Government Integrity Fund as a non-profit social welfare organization, these sleazebuckets don't have to disclose their donors.
The Disconnect grows wider and wider. Millions of teabaggers are convinced that the IRS is singling out conservative organizations for extra scrutiny, while a secretly-funded “charity” group slips under the radar. The Government Integrity Fund's biggest charity was a multi-million dollar libel campaign against Senator Sherrod Brown in 2012.
YOUR tax tax dollars at work.
