Crossroads Grassroots Policy Strategies (Crossroads GPS) is a non-proft, pro-Republican group that has spent millions of dollars in supporting Republican candidates for public offce or running down Democrat ones. As a non-proft making organization, it is not obligated to reveal the identities of its donors and supporters. Together with a related support group, they have been running advertising campaigns to the tune of $14 million denigrating Democrats and supporting Republicans in eight states running for Senate.

Their actions have drawn calls by two organizations for the IRS to investigate their activities. These two organizations, Democracy 21 and Campaign Legal Center, are groups that have been lobbying for tougher campaign fnancing laws. The two groups fled an offcial complaint with the IRS last Tuesday, requesting the agency to launch an investigation to determine if Crossroads GPS has gone against its tax-exempt status by infringing on laws that prohibit such organizations from supporting or opposing candidates running for public offce.
