Carrying a little stick and speaking loudly in Milwaukee


The IRS is finally investigating illegal campaign activity by some of the nation's churches.

During the campaign, reports came out about Bush/Cheney 2004 asking churches to send their directories to their campaign so that members could be recruited as volunteers and solicited for donations. The agency is also investigating an an event where Sen. John Kerry spoke to a congregation at a Florida church.

The IRS certainly isn't on everyone's list of favorite government agencies, but they're doing the right thing here. As part of the tax-free status that our nation's churches enjoy, they shouldn't be engaging in this type of campaigning.
