That's not the point. The mere fact that they were treated differently is a problem. I'm not a tax lawyer, but I'm assuming that until the applications were approved, these organizations could not behave as
501(c)(4) organizations and had to operate under a different set of rules until then.

It's possible that the delay in processing cost the organizaions money.

I have no sympathy for TP Groups, but I don't want the IRS making up the rules and/or changning the rules whenever they want.
