As nonprofit advocacy groups plunge into a high-priced fight over confirming Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, they will no longer have to identify their biggest donors to the Internal Revenue Service.


The IRS announced the rules change Monday evening. Earlier that day, Trump railed against special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of Russia's cryptocurrency-financed effort to disrupt the 2016 presidential race, and the FBI arrested a Russian national who allegedly used the NRA to build ties among conservatives and Republicans.


Until now, tax-exempt groups under Section 501(c) of the tax code have had to identify donors of $5,000 or more on their annual tax returns. While the returns are public documents, the donor identifications are redacted when tax returns are made public. But the system isn't foolproof. About six years ago, the IRS failed to redact the donor list for Crossroads GPS, a leading conservative group at the time.
...


The 501(c)(4) social welfare groups have been a rising force in politics, especially on the right. There is also a smattering of heavily financed 501(c)(6) business associations in politics, again on the right.




Well Played, Russia and the far-right Conservatives. Well played.

Weiner laptop ... publish it to Wikileaks.  DNC server ... publish it to Wikileaks.  Podesta email ... publish it to Wikileaks.  Awan brothers/DWS emails ... publish it to Wikileaks ... get the idea.  Waterboard every DNC official, every appointee to the Obama presidency.  Public needs to know.

Yes, Facebook .... KGB operation.  NRA ... KGB operation.  Did you hear that Sacha Baron Cohen tried to sneak into a gunshop in disguise and was kicked out?  An obvious KGB agent.  COINTELPRO comrade Shiranu.

Been happening since Athens.  Silver mines in Laurium were the original dark money.

Other than being artistic, not many of you would qualify to be an ancient Athenian citizen.

And who blocked regulation of the Dark Markets at the end of his term?  Bill Clinton.

Dark Money is damaging to democracy.  When you don't know the sources of a politician's support, you don't know who they are controlled by.

That makes about as much sense as saying "pears, crabgrass, sparrows, and clouds".  Your conspiracy theories are about as interesting and applicable to reality and old as miasma and spontaneous generation.

Yes, you and all the other mere millionaires, were invited to attend the last Bilderberger conference ... so they could hear your opinions on international relations.  And all of their meetings are private ... not just Mr Trump meeting with Mr Putin.

Apparently, my invitation got "lost in the mail".  Well, after all, it was "sent" by a group that doesn't actually exist, so that should be no surprise.
