Embedded fairly deep in this story about the resignation of Kweisi Mfune as head of the NAACP is a bit on how the IRS is investigating the organization's tax-exempt status because of an anti-Bush speech Julian Bond made. In its letter to the NAACP, the IRS stated that "tax-exempt organizations are legally barred from supporting or opposing any candidate for elective office."

It's good to know that the government and the IRS are being fair and balanced here. After all, if you don't count the thousands of churches whose pastors made pro-Bush speeches, there are hardly any tax-exempt organizations who are blatantly organizing for the Republicans.
