Crossroads and their minions all applied for this status as a way to game the system.

Rove's application described Crossroads' attempt to influence elections as "limited."

"One of the applications the IRS released to ProPublica was from Crossroads GPS, the largest social-welfare nonprofit involved in the 2012 election. The group, started in part by GOP consultant Karl Rove, promised the IRS that any effort to influence elections would be “limited.” The group spent more than $70 million from anonymous donors in 2012."
