In a shared scoop by The Daily Beast (1,125 shares) and ProPublica (130 shares), Kim Barker reports that one ‘Pro-Troop’ charity has been paying off Tea Party cronies instead. "And somehow the scandal is the IRS trying to crack down on scammers like these," Alex Koppelman marvels at Guardian US. "This is so f**ked," Daily Mail's Jon Eiseman concludes.

Which is perhaps why we can understand The Washington Post's latest news that a majority of people don’t like their own congressman (361 shares). "Lawmakers, hide your lapel pins this recess," PostTV's Ed O'Keefe advises.
