May 23 (Bloomberg) -- Put aside the politics, and the
question of who-knew-what-when. There are two policy problems
highlighted by the controversies at the Internal Revenue Service
and the Department of Justice. The first is the growth of
501(c)(4) groups into vehicles for anonymous and unlimited
political spending. The second is the Barack Obama
administration’s overzealous prosecution of leaks.
Unfortunately, for those who would like to see these policy
problems resolved, the wrong party is angry about them and the
wrong party is complacent.
