In the US, this is not unheard of. I've tried extending a diplomatic
hand to other third parties, but to no avail.
It took the party almost a year and some change to find a bank that
would cater to a political action committee. I have a feeling, however,
that it has to do with the lobbying abilities of 527s.

One should also take note of the power that paperwork has. It gives you
indemnity and fallback in case of legal issues. It also can be a great
hassle to obtain, depending.

Just my two cents.
