    The IRS needs to investigate the secret money.

    Just ban unions from donating to campaigns and we’ll be fine.

    Wait what? maybe he is talking about how now that the IRS has been made and found out to be a political partition institution that it is now under an audit. And wow, found out today they are spending our tax money for penthouse views of Vagus and dancing classes. I guess that is what it takes to give such “bad customer service”

    If you think Citizens United was bad just think how terrible the 1st Amendment is. Everybody actually thinks they have the right to voice their opinion. We must send the FBI to harass them and the IRS toi audit them and Justice to go through their emails. Only Soros can spend millions because he is good.

    In the mythology, after all of the evil had escaped Pandora’s box, they looked inside and saw one last battered spirit… the spirit of Hope.
    The Pandora’s box opened by Citizen’s United is empty of hope, but full of greed.
    When corporations can be sent to jail for crimes I’ll believe that corporations are people too. In the meantime, this ruling makes it less likely “job creators” will use their money to help our economy because they’ll want to use it to elect whoever will give their company the most of what it wants.
    This is not the way to run a civil society.
    Respectfully,

    Simple fix: Remove private money from politics entirely. Implement a system where every step, from nomination to election, is covered by public money. And make taking private money while in public office an act of treason- heck, we can make each dollar taken count as a separate charge of treason.
    Of course, it’s a simple fix, but it would have to go through a system already bought and paid for by corporate money… so we’d be more likely to see vampires vote to outlaw drinking blood.

    How will that stop the IRS and mommy government from picking winners and losers when you have to prove you can and will use the money. Before the election anyone who applied to use THEIR OWN money was put into a holding pattern while the IRS was asking about their prayers, book reports and telling groups were they can or can not protest. And you want the government to hold ALL the money!!!! how does that work? Right now we are finding out just how bias the IRS and many other agencies are! they can NOT BE TRUSTED! I do NOT want them holding the purse!
    You want money out of politics well so do I! FAIR TAX! id the ONLY plan that does away with the IRS and does not allow government to pick winners and losers with a complicated penalizing tax code.

    @Harleyquinn

    Harley and Onguard,

    You guys are aware, of course, that of all the organizations sent the SAME EXACT LETTER that the Tea Party received, the only organization to actually have it’s tax-exempt status revoked was a liberal one? Not exactly a leftist witch hunt if they punish only those on the left…

    Um NO, you are misinformed. How could that be? They were CALLED, Then sent a tailored made questionnaire just for them. The point was not to reject them. If rejected they could replay, no the point was to delay the money so it could not be spent until AFTER the election. there is also a documented case where the guy changed his name. He had been DELAYED for about a year, so he changed it to something green or liberal sounding and was approved in 3 weeks.
    Sorry try again.

    I found the dark money, it was the IRS who illegally opened the box! that is what this cartoon is about!
    http://freebeacon.com/chilling-effect/

    As reported by the Washington Free Beacon, ProPublica extensively covered so-called “dark money” conservative groups and donors during the 2012 election cycle, such as casino mogul Sheldon Adelson, while largely ignoring similar spending on the left.

    Although the Cincinnati IRS office leaked the applications to ProPublica, an official IRS spokeswoman told the news outlet it would be a felony to publish them.

    ProPublica decided it had the First Amendment on its side and that the confidential applications were newsworthy.

    “As far as we know, the Crossroads application is still pending, in which case it seems that either you obtained whatever document you have illegally, or that it has been approved,” Jonathan Collegio, the group’s spokesman, wrote to ProPublica in December.

    Crossroads declined to comment for this article, as well as a Monday article by ProPublica detailing how it obtained the records from the IRS.

    Other groups had documents leaked in the midst of a bitter election year as well.
    The IRS “inadvertently” published the donor list of the Texas Public Policy Foundation (TPPF)—a conservative think tank—on GuideStar in 2012.

    The list quickly became fodder for left-wing opponents of the think-tank.

    TPPF also declined to comment for this article.
