    Lots of things they do SHOULD be illegal--if they aren't already.

    How about getting tax write-offs for donations to all sorts of right-wing political groups that pretend that they exist for "educational purposes."  (Yes, such groups are wrong on the left, too.)

    How about hiding your donations behind layers of corporate veils?

    How about groups that fund political advertising not being transparent and having to tell who their donors are?

    And what about their everyday personal taxes?  Do they pull rankly illegal stunts like the way Mitt Romney pays himself million-dollar salaries from the companies he buys in order to bankrupt them, and then reports the salaries as investment returns rather than ordinary income?  And the I.R.S. can't be bothered to sue the evil, company-destroying, tax-avoiding scumbag?  Yeah, not to mention all the tax-haven money-hiding, money-laundering schemes.

    Wouldn't the Koch brothers have to be pulling some of this crap, too?  Why, it's the only "sensible" way to handle one's tax-avoidance and estate-planning!
