11. That's not the issue at hand.

There were approximately 300 applications that were flagged for further review by an IRS team that specialized in further determining whether an application for 501(c)(4) status was appropriate given the nature of the organization's stated purpose (i.e., weighing whether the organization was primarily politically driven, which is NOT allowed, or whether the organization was primarily promoting social welfare).

If I read the report correctly, approximately 82% of the "unfairly targeted" conservative applications ended up having a large enough component of political activity to warrant further scrutinization and therefore were appropriately flagged, even if they were identified through "inappropriate" criteria (i.e., based on their name).
