    Conservative groups by the thousands applied for the status.
    A far lesser number (sorry, don't have that # handy but read the article listed below) of applications came from progressive groups.

    Conservative groups winning the designation have spent nine figure sums on their "social welfare" campaigns. Progressive groups, much less.

    The only applicants to be rejected were groups associated with progressive causes. Maybe they were properly rejected, but it's foolish to imagine that not a single conservative group sent in a defective, revealing application, especially given that in terms of strategy and tactics, the campaigns from both sides are not detectably different.
