Dirty money - The Battalion - Opinion: "Last month, the Internal Revenue Service began a probe into 60 tax-exempt organizations, including the NAACP, which may have participated in political activities that would threaten their tax-exempt status. The groups under investigation include a variety of charities and churches with both right and left political leanings.

Given the recent politically motivated actions of NAACP leaders, such a claim is false and unreasonable. "
