3. this is just absurd - you're either a nonprofit and meet the criteria, or you're a political org and

you don't. You can't have it both ways.

I started a non-profit group to clean up our local river. I had to submit the mission statement, board of directors, etc. to both state and federal agencies in charge of approving nonprofits. We could not be political or donate to/advocate for anyone running for office who wanted to clean up our river, too.

These 501 c-4 groups are totally bogus. That goes for Karl Rover's group and Grover Norquist's several groups, claiming to be "nonprofit."

No, not political at all
