The Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration's report that is at the center of the current firestorm over potential political bias at the IRS... examined the names of... 296 [501(c)(3) and 501(c)(4)] organizations] and found that 98 of them had either "Tea Party", "Patriots," or "9/12 Project" as part of their name...
What does this... tell [us] about political bias at the IRS? Not much, really..
... Looking at the make-up of groups selected tells us nothing about bias unless we know the make-up of the group from which they were selected.
