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.
