  •  I think it's that the 501(c)(4) exemption (5+ / 0-)

    has evolved into a catch all for any organization that wants to raise unlimited money without being taxed and without disclosing donors.  Your interpretation of the code section is the original intent, I believe, but through aggressive court actions and a friendly judiciary it has become something else entirely.

    The Citizens United ruling pretty much put a stake through the heart of taking any action to rein these things in. President Obama is right to fight fire with fire by using the same tactics as the right wing loonies. Standing on the sidelines and claiming the moral high ground will hand the country over to these nuts.
