Last week, the Internal Revenue Service issued a notice of proposed rulemaking geared at curbing the abuse of 501(c)(4) non-profit organizations for partisan political activities. We see this proposal as a major step in the fight against secret money unleashed into our political system following the decision by the U.S. Supreme Court in Citizens United.
