I'm sorry, everybody knows that Tea Party-related 501(c)(4) groups are not "social welfare" organizations -- teabaggers deny the very concept of social welfare -- and so the IRS would be perfectly correct to investigate whether political activists are abusing the tax system to carry out their political activities.
So far, all the IRS is doing is investigating. In fact, "The only known previous action by the IRS came in July, when it denied C4 status to three units of Emerge America, a group that identifies and trains Democratic women to run for office."
So hey, teabaggers, cool your conspiracy jets for now.
