Even After Lois Lerner Apologized and Admitted IRS Targetted Conservatives & Tea Party … 3 Months Later IRS Still Targeting Tea Party Groups


Looks like the IRS is continuing their phony scandal against the Tea Party.

Simply amazing. Three months after the IRS scandal came to light that they were intentionally and purposely targeting conservative and Tea Party groups, the Washington Times is reporting that the IRS is still doing the same targeting today. UNREAL.  Wasn’t it Lois Lerner who initially tried to diffuse this “political” bomb by apologizing for two rogue agents in Cincinnati for targeting Tea Party and conservative groups, but claimed it was not political? She has since plead the 5th. Phoney scandal, eh?  However, it would appear that President Barack Obama’s reference to “phony scandals” was nothing more than a green light to continue the illegal targeting of Tea Party and Conservative groups. This president just does not care. It’s Chicago-style, Saul Alinsky politics of Obama doubling down on the scandal and calling it phony.


In a remarkable admission that is likely to rock the Internal Revenue Service again, testimony released Thursday by House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp reveals that an agent involved in reviewing tax exempt applications from conservative groups told a committee investigator that the agency is still targeting Tea Party groups, three months after the IRS scandal erupted.

In closed door testimony before the House Ways & Means Committee, the unidentified IRS agent said requests for special tax status from Tea Party groups is being forced into a special “secondary screening” because the agency has yet to come up with new guidance on how to judge the tax status of the groups.

In a redacted transcript from the committee provided to Secrets, a Ways & Means investigator asked: “If you saw — I am asking this currently, if today if a Tea Party case, a group — a case from a Tea Party group came in to your desk, you reviewed the file and there was no evidence of political activity, would you potentially approve that case? Is that something you would do?”

The agent said, “At this point I would send it to secondary screening, political advocacy.”

The committee staffer then said, “So you would treat a Tea Party group as a political advocacy case even if there was no evidence of political activity on the application. Is that right?” The agent admitted, “Based on my current manager’s direction, uh-huh.”

Camp called the renewed targeting of Tea Party groups “outrageous.”

      The IRS has proven itself to be a political tool of the Democrat Party. This is an unconstitutional attack on those that are targeted. It has to come from the very highest level of the administration.

      When the House of Represenatives returns from vacation, they need to send the agency a message by defunding them for six to nine months. Some need to be charged with a crime and put in prison.

      [...] if targeting conservative and Tea Party groups was not bad enough to ensure that Barack Obama would be reelected in 2012, lets go after the vets [...]
