It's not easy to keep a "scandal" going where there's no scandal

Whatever you hear about tax exempt, 501(c)(4) organizations these days, someone is probably playing politics, or simply lying (for the sake of playing politics). And even if you're not hearing about it, they're still lying about it. This is all about bi-partisan deceit designed to defend the flow of dark money from secret donors. 

The focal point of the "IRS scandal" these days is a new set of regulations announced by the IRS in November and currently open for public comments, which totaled more than 69,000 before the comment period closed February 27.

In case you missed it, Republicans on the House Ways and Means Committee, led by Rep. Dave Camp of Michigan, have introduced a bill that would block any new regulations, and would also, in effect, make it against the law for the administration to follow the law. That's literally true. The proposed legislation, H.R.3865, has a fictional title: "Stop Targeting of Political Beliefs by the IRS Act of 2014" and really, who could be against that?

It would be like opposing the "Stop Brainwashing Our Children by the Dept. of Education Act of 2012," which is an imaginary response to an equally imaginary threat. Just like the IRS targeting of political beliefs. Of course Imaginary threats can be more powerful than real ones sometimes, like those WMDs in Iraq that are still imaginary and still exploding people's heads at home and abroad more than a decade after their mushroom clouds were first inhaled . 

More than 5,000 applications for 501(c)(4) status swamped the IRS by 2012
