"The Obama administration has launched the first attack in a carefully planned war on conservative and libertarian political speech. In November, the IRS proposed 'clarifying' the rules that govern the political activity of 501(c)(4) 'social welfare' groups, many of which have been branded by the left as nefarious 'dark money' cabals. By clarifying the rules, the IRS hopes to provide guidance on how much, and what kind, of political activity (c)(4)s can engage in. In reality, the IRS is using the tax code to discourage conservative political speech." (01/30/14)
