"the real IRS scandal" has no solution

it is pretty ridiculous that we give tax exemptions to political advocacy groups posing as charities. i just don't know how we could change the policy to make it better while still preserving tax breaks for real charities. any line between "political advocacy groups" and a "charitable organization" is going to be fuzzy, and if the IRS got more zealous in investigating those organization, it just opens the IRS up to charges that it is politically motivated.
