Former IRS Commissioner Douglass Shulman’s Wife Works for Liberal Group, Public Campaign, Fighting Open Campaign Spending


Hmm, this is just a coincidence I guess, you just can’t make this stuff up.

Former Internal Revenue Service commissioner Douglas Shulman, the individual who made 157 trips to the White House, when the IRS was targeting conservative and Tea Party non-profit groups, is married to Susan L. Anderson, a senior program advisor for the Lefty organization, Public Campaign. Of all things, the liberal group fights against open campaign spending of conservatives, the very thing that the IRS scandal was preventing by stalling conservative and Tea Party non-profits. Coincidence, what about conflict of interest?

The IRS is under fire for improperly scrutinizing the tax-exempt nonprofit status of conservative groups between 2010 and 2012, demanding conservative training materials, personal information on conservative college interns and even the content of religious groups’ prayers. IRS supporters have defended the beleaguered agency by railing against outside spending and special interest money supposedly pumped into the 2012 campaign by conservative benefactors.

One of those defenders is the group of which Shulman’s spouse is an executive.

Shulman’s wife Susan L. Anderson is the senior program advisor for the Washington-based nonprofit organization Public Campaign, which claims that it “is laying the foundation for reform by working with a broad range of organizations, including local community groups, around the country that are fighting for change and national organizations whose members are not fairly represented under the current campaign finance system.”

Earlier this month, when news broke of the targeting scandal broke, Public Campaign president and CEO Nick Nyhart belittled the concerns of disenfranchised conservatives.

      Claims of ‘poor judgement’ or ‘bad choices’ are simply
      not an acceptable excuse for criminal behavior made
      by IRS officials and other US Government personnel.
      Criminal Investigations and appropriate prison sentences
      should be meted out to the guilty parties. They must
      be prosecuted!

      Perhaps this is just a ‘Collusional Coinkadink’?
