Seeking legislation germane to the organization's programs is a permissible means of attaining social welfare purposes. Thus, a section 501(c)(4) social welfare organization may further its exempt purposes through lobbying as its primary activity without jeopardizing its exempt status.

This is such a typical TEA Party scandal--rules, facts and the laws of gravity only apply to everyone else.

b, do you think the IRS under this administration is impartial and ethical? Do you approve of the arrogance and lawless conduct of the lame duck president? How about the statments he and his minions keep repeating about not being aware of the various scandals embarassing his administration until they read about in the press?
Just that admission alone speaks volumes about his ability to govern.
I must admit though, you obama apologists are sure loyal...you manage to stick by your boy not matter how badly he screws up this country.
