(Newser) – A group by any other name wouldn’t sound as nasty: Citizens United Not Timid, an anti-Hillary group, has just filed for “527” status with the IRS. But it’s raising eyebrows not for its message but for its less-than-subtle acronym, reports Talking Points Memo. Not so coincidentally, Roger Stone, infamous in GOP political circles for his dirty tricks, is a main player.

Citizens United doesn’t plan to run ads or hold protests. Its sole purpose is to sell T-shirts that link the group's name to Clinton as "billboard education,” Stone told the Weekly Standard. And Democrats, be forewarned if Hillary is your party’s nominee. “A hard 527 rain is going to fall,” Stone vows.
