A conservative 501(c)(4) nonprofit whose application for tax exempt status was among several wrongfully given to ProPublica earlier this year is suing the IRS over the disclosure and demanding big bucks in damages.

Finish off the IRS!

Sue them. Shut them down. Tear out their phone and internet lines. Board up the buildings. Rent them to Subway shops. Fire everyone.

Then close the EPA the DOE and PDQ and the POS!

You would be much more lenient than me. I would start with tar and feathers, then finish them off with rope.
