“Well, there are really two scandals involved here. … No. 1 is this outrageous idea of targeting one political group versus another and focusing on groups with the name “tea party” and more conservative groups. That’s wrong, and everybody has condemned that. … The second scandal, however is that this designation of tax-exempt status for so-called social welfare groups that turn into political groups, whether they’re supporting the president or Democrats or supporting Republicans, that’s wrong no matter what. This tax-exempt status, 501(c)4, was created years and years and years ago for social welfare organizations, and somehow it’s gotten into being a political vehicle where people can contribute unlimited amounts of money without any identification of who they are, and it’s really a threat, I believe, to our democratic system.”
