Busted … Emails Show IRS’ Lois Lerner Specifically Targeted Tea Party


More from IRS-gate, is Lerner headed for a perjury charge, or making a deal to spill the beans?

Busted … Lois G. Lerner knew all along that the Tea Party groups were being targeted by the IRS … emails disclose that she called the Tea Party applications for tax-exempt status problematic. It is obvious what this woman did and who the beneficiary was of the attacks and stalling out the process of Tea Party and Conservative organizations actions. All roads lead back to the reelection of Barack Obama and the threat that the Tea Party posed to his reelection and Obamacare and the many new IRS agents that would be employed as its watch guard. Can some one finally call this scandal for what it is and can the GOP step up and take swift action? Stop with the drip, drip, drip and do whatever is needed to nail those involved, no matter how high up the tree it goes.

Lois G. Lerner, the woman at the center of the Internal Revenue Service scandal over special scrutiny of conservative groups, specifically targeted tea party applications and directed that they be held up in 2011 in order to come up with an agency policy, according to several of Ms. Lerner’s emails released by a House committee Thursday.

In one 2011 email, Ms. Lerner specifically calls the tea party applications for tax-exempt status problematic, which seems to counter Democrats’ arguments that tea party groups weren’t targeted.

“Tea Party Matter very dangerous,” Ms. Lerner wrote in the 2011 email, saying that those applications could end up being the “vehicle to go to court” to get more clarity on a 2010 Supreme Court ruling on campaign finance rules.

That email suggests that agency employees knew they had gone overboard in their scrutiny — despite top IRS officials telling Congress that there was no special scrutiny of conservative groups.

From The Hill: Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) called for criminal penalties against Lois Lerner, the former director of exempt organizations at the IRS, for lying to Congress about her involvement in the IRS targeting scandal.

      Did anyone have any doubts about the out of control IRS. This agency should have all of its managers in D.C called to congress to testify, then the field office managers that have the task of handling non-profits.

      All who are found to be a part of this targeting should have the maximum criminal charges applied.

      I believe it reaches into the White House.
