    How many progressive groups applied?

    From the article, 6 of the 20 (30%) of progressive groups that applied were flagged for further investigation, whereas 292 of the 292 (100%) of the conservative groups were flagged.

    If I had the time, I’d like to read the full report; from all appearances, even the progressive groups that were flagged didn’t get anywhere near the level of harassment as the Tea Party groups did.
