From 2012, the first non-profit political target by the IRS was a Democratic one.

A 501(c)(4) group denied tax-exempt status by the IRS would
run afoul of Federal Election Commission rules and could be
required to disclose its donors.

Emerge America, a group which helps Democratic women seeking
elected office, said it lost it tax-exempt status last October.
The IRS invoked the "private benefit doctrine" barring 501(c)(4)
status for any group promoting a candidate or political party.
The IRS announced its final decision in May.
