HR 3865 -- the Stop Targeting of Political Beliefs by the IRS Act of 2014

5: co.pol/HR 3865 -- the Stop Targeting of Political Beliefs by the IRS Act of 2014:
urge your congressional representatives:
I was pleased to see HR 3865,
the Stop Targeting of Political Beliefs by the IRS Act of 2014.
.
The IRS's proposed rules would censor
what 501(c)4s can tell the public.
For example, communicating anything about a candidate
within sixty days before a general election
or thirty days before a primary election
would be considered "political activity."
Any past reference to the candidate on a website
would also have to be deleted.
.
This means an elected official can
introduce legislation sixty days before an election
with the assurance that voter groups
cannot even talk about it.
.
Please vote Yes on HR 3865.
These rules will have a serious impact on our democracy.
