Liberal Slate writer Matthew Yglesias knows the IRS did something wrong in targeting conservative 501(c)(4) groups and leaking their confidential information to liberal journalists, but he can’t quite figure out what.
Tax administration is hard!
He asks if the only alternative to selectively targeting conservative organizations is to “rubber stamp everything.”
Because giving equal scrutiny to liberal and conservative groups clearly is not an option.
