Letter to the Editor
These so called not for profit tea Party groups deserved more scrutiny by the IRS, not because they are Republican, but because 100% of them are in fact in violation of the law. Tax exempt groups are supposed to be tax exempt because they are “charitable” or “social welfare organizations”. The organizations are supposed to be feeding the poor or the sick.
But that’s not what they are doing. These Tea Party groups are laundering money so that rich people can give campaign contributions to help candidates and deduct it from their taxes. So saying that they are targeting the Tea Party is like accusing law enforcement of targeting bank robbers. That’s what they are supposed to do.
