As someone who was on the board of a non-profit on the other side of the argument from the tea party I can vouch that what they got was almost identical to the way our group was treated. All 501c3 groups go through the same thing to verify that they aren't being used to funnel money to candidates and issues under the table, illegally.
I'm saying this as a person who participates in the operation of a non-Christian religious organization that had to renew our 501c3 status after we changed our name a few years ago, we had to go through the same hoops as this group complains about, and we had no political affiliations of any kind and had been in existence for more than 30 years under our previous name. The Tea Party is nothing special, and did not get treated any different than any other organization seeking tax-exempt status.
Flynt couldn't make any worse mockery of the election than Sanford already has... Run the ad.
Cell phones are wonderful things, but mix in motor vehicles that are now averaging 2 tons each and capable of driving through older model cars (search for 2009 vs 1959 Chevy crash test to watch a 2009 compact car drive through and crush the "driver" dummy of a 1959 full-size Chevrolet), they are too dangerous a mix. Driving is already "multitasking" more than enough for most people, additional distractions just get people killed.
While y'all have Ted Cruz down there, would you mind keeping him, like for say, another 6 years? It would help prevent him from embarrassing us here in TX.
