Another Obama Scandal: IRS Apologizes for Targeting Conservative Groups During 2012 Election

Posted by on May 10, 2013 at 11:36 am

Wait, did we say Obama? Silly us, he has nothing to do with anything according to the media.

Except, well, he does.

The Internal Revenue Service is apologizing for inappropriately flagging conservative political groups for additional reviews during the 2012 election to see if they were violating their tax-exempt status.

Lois Lerner, who heads the IRS unit that oversees tax-exempt groups, said organizations that included the words “tea party” or “patriot” in their applications for tax-exempt status were singled out for additional reviews.

Tax exempt groups, eh? Just imagine the furor if the Soros flying monkeys at Media Matters were harassed by the Bush administration.

Lerner said the practice, initiated by low-level workers in Cincinnati, was wrong and she apologized while speaking at a conference in Washington.

Low-level workers. Uh huh.

Many conservative groups complained during the election that they were being harassed by the IRS. They said the agency asked them an inordinate number of questions to justify their tax-exempt status.

Guess what name is missing from this story? That’s right: Barack Obama. No doubt if Jay Carney is asked about this he’ll dismiss it as old news.

    Mistakes were made.

    The guilty shall be sought.

    The innocent will be punished.

    And the game goes on.

    And the drooling morons that lust for obamacare will ignore this.

    This red herring the Republicans are obsessing over in their desperate attempt to remove all credibility from Hillary Clinton’s 2016 run at the presidency is cartoonish to the extreme! Why not just drive up and down the aisles of congress in a horn-honking procession of those tiny little Shriner clown cars? At least that way we could all get a laugh out of it! I mean— Do you GOP troublemakers really believe that your obsessional witch hunt for the minutia surrounding the Benghazi tragedy or the I. R. S. improprieties is actually scoring points for you with the American people, because you are Wrong! You want Points, get off your asses and help President Obama legislate the infrastructural programs America needs to put people back to work,—our families are hungry! Despite what you believe, The GOP will never succeed in allowing the government of the United States to be placed in the hands of the 1% wealthiest. . .
