Let’s face it, this mushrooming Obama scandal basically targeted anyone who believes in America. We guess anyone who’s considered a patriot or wants to improve the country isn’t part of Obama’s radical transformation of America.
The Internal Revenue Service’s scrutiny of conservative groups went beyond those with “tea party” or “patriot” in their names—as the agency admitted Friday—to also include ones worried about government spending, debt or taxes, and even ones that lobbied to “make America a better place to live,” according to new details of a government probe.
The investigation also revealed that a high-ranking IRS official knew as early as mid-2011 that conservative groups were being inappropriately targeted—nearly a year before then-IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman told a congressional committee the agency wasn’t targeting conservative groups.
The new disclosures are likely to inflame a widening controversy over IRS handling of dozens of applications by tea-party, patriot and other conservative groups for tax-exempt status.
The details emerged from disclosures to congressional investigators by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration. The findings, which were reviewed by The Wall Street Journal, don’t make clear who came up with the idea to give extra scrutiny to the conservative groups.
We’ll take a wild stab and guess it’s some of Obama’s campaign henchmen. Or maybe Obama himself. Until he’s under oath we just won’t know. Not that being under oath would stop him from lying.
On Sunday, a government official said the report will note that IRS officials told investigators that no one outside the IRS was involved in developing the criteria the agency now acknowledges were flawed.
Yeah, and Benghazi was just a protest over a YouTube video. Meanwhile, Maine Senator Susan Collins called for an Obama apology. Good luck with that.
