Obama Proposes Curbs on Tax-Exempt Groups in Elections

The Obama administration "proposed a crackdown on the widespread use of tax-exempt organizations for political campaigning, seeking to reduce the influential role that the secretive groups have played in recent elections," the Wall Street Journal reports.

"The new 'guidance' issued by the Treasury Department and the Internal Revenue Service would curtail a broad array of these tax-exempt entities' activities, including campaign advertising, voter registration, get-out-the-vote efforts, and distribution of voter guides and campaign materials. The process of completing the new regulations could take months, and officials said they expected a lot of feedback, acknowledging the political battles ahead."
