    a specfic point, why the criteria should be conduct based not message based.  And yes, when the IRS used their key words to identify potential problem applicants, they then asked for inappropriate information.

    And from what I know the one Democratic organization was probably engaged in electioneering.  And yes, so were many of the right wing organanizations, and many applications should have been denied.  All I tried to do was explain why the criteria are conduct, spending lots of money to help candidates, not message, the political leanings of the candidates.

    I have said from the beginning this was a tempest in a teapot, another deliberate attempt by Issa to scandal monger, and that the issue here was much more incompetence than political witch hunt.
