    ^^^that mitigates mildly, it hardly absolves a widespread, targeted practice that served to intimidate and scare US citizens, from exercizing their 1st Amendment rights.

    Ths story is f'n disgusting, no matter how you attempt to spin it.

    It's especially disturbing when you know (as I do) actual individuals, who were scared silent--who were conveniently audited for the first time ever, after several decades of nothing--just because they contributed to TEA Party organizations.

    That's what captain hope and change, captain transparency and fairness, has brought to US politics.

    Straight from Chicago.

    ^^^follow up:

    You don't give a chit about 'what if', because it's in the abstract to you.

    What if f'n happened to actual people whom I know.

    (lucky for me, it didn't happen to me--probably because I take precautions to stay off the radar).

    It's a bad law to begin with, but Obama is abusing it and he may be even breaking the law in the process. So, there's more to it than how it was used before.
