In case anyone had forgotten about the Obama Administration IRS’s abusing its power to try to stop Tea Party groups, or had somehow gotten the impression along the way that the IRS had been cleared of wrongdoing, a reminder that that’s not the case, from the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals, via Jonathan Adler at the Volokh Conspiracy on the Washington Post Web site: The litigation in which the Tea Party groups are fighting to defend their rights is still ongoing (in its third year now), and the IRS is still behaving badly.

For the last several months, Ohio Conservatives United and affiliated groups in Florida and Illinois have been conducting surveys of members of Tea Party, 9/12, and other liberty groups. In each state, their theory was simple:
“If Ohio conservatives unite behind one candidate in the primary election, we will win.
“If we split and fragment our vote across the entire field, the establishment Republican will win.”
This is part of the problem with the Romney strategy. He recommended that everyone vote for whichever non-Drumpf candidate is in the lead in each state according to surveys. It sounds good in theory, but what if two candidates are tied in the polls, or nearly tied?
The most recent poll in Ohio puts all three contenders in a virtual tie: Drumpf 33%, Kasich 33, Cruz 27, margin of error 4.4 points.

But John Kasich is already a big part of the reason that Drumpf has won as many states as he has.
