Over at the Washington Free Beacon, interviews a Tea Party organizer who beat IRS scrutiny simply by changing the name of his group.

The source was a member of a conservative nonprofit that applied for tax-exempt status with the IRS. After waiting nearly a year without any response, the organization reapplied under an innocuous name.

The Cincinnati IRS office — the same at the heart of the current scandal — approved the application in three weeks.

“At that point, we had a history,” the source said. “But as soon as we changed the name, it sailed through.”
