End loophole abuse


While the thoroughly bought politicians (both types) in Washington cry outrage about the IRS trying to hold political donors to the law, what it and the very corrupted election buying of 2012 really point out is the IRS really needs to do an intensive activity audit of all 501(c)(4) groups with exemptions to see how many are PACs masquerading as charitable organizations.

I suspect quite a number will be found, defrauding the taxpayers of much needed government revenue and hiding their funders from public view because they are afraid of exposure.
