    Until this advent of c4s, practitioners in the area sort of knew what primary meant and what activities counted.  Rove and the Kochs really did start a new trend with aggressive c4s, and then all sorts followed their lead - some with good counsel and some just making it up.   And there was a flood of good, questionable, and bad 501c4s.

    The IRS started down the path of trying to get some more guidance out there in this area, but were halted by Repubs who saw them going after the well.   So it shouldn't be surprising that some IRS types in Cincinnati (where they process most exemption applications) sort of freelanced on it, intentionally or unintentionally.

    Now, MB is exactly right.. and area of the law that badly needs some additional guidance with be blocked for a very long time to come.
