The U.S. tax code allows orgs to make independent expenditures on politics while concealing their donors’ names — as long as politics isn’t the organization’s “primary activity.” This is called “dark money.” The IRS is charged w/ policing. It’s not. https://propub.li/2XkSRfM
Six years after it was excoriated for allegedly targeting conservative organizations, the @IRS has largely given up on regulating an entire category of nonprofits. The result: More dark money gushes into the political system. https://propub.li/2ItesPS

For our latest look at the gutting of the IRS, we're looking at #darkmoney. Specifically, whether or not the agency is doing its job of policing anonymous donors' political donations via nonprofits (aka "dark money"). Spoiler: It's not happening. https://propub.li/2IslILQ

The @IRS has the daunting task of trying to determine when nonprofits violate the rules around concealing donors' names. They’re not doing it. In fact, during the past ~2 years, the examination committee hasn’t received a single complaint to review. https://propub.li/2VLLgqd
