Time is short for the public to provide comments to the IRS regarding proposed new rules that are designed to stifle conservative non-profit groups like Minnesota Majority, Tea Party groups and countless others. Political operators in the Obama Administration are seeking to legitimize the IRS’ ongoing, illegal practice of targeting those same organizations.
Last year, the nation was outraged to learn that the IRS had been using its power to single out and harass organizations with identifiable conservative viewpoints.
Rather than reverse the illegal and un-American activity, the IRS is now seeking to legitimize the targeting and silence conservative nonprofits through new official regulations.
These proposed restrictions would prohibit 501(c)(4) groups from participating in voter registration drives, candidate debates, publishing voter guides, voting records and key votes. That’s just the beginning. If the IRS gets their way, 501(c)(4) organizations like Minnesota Majority would be hamstrung.
The IRS is now accepting public comments on the proposed rules changes, but the deadline for public comments to be submitted is Thursday, February 27th.
