IRS Spied on Tea Party after Granting Tax-exempt Status


File this one under, no kidding, really?

The Washington Times is reporting that the IRS continued to spy on Tea Party organization, even after they were granted tax-exempt status. Yea, are we really going to believe that these conservative organizations were not purposely and willfully being targeted by the IRS? This scandal is not even close to being exposed. What ever happened to that transparency that Barack Obama spoke of while campaigning to be president?


Republicans investigating the IRS targeting scandal said Wednesday that the agency continued to conduct secret surveillance on tea party groups even after approving them for tax-exempt status.

Acting Commissioner Danny Werfel said he shut down the monitoring program after he found out about it, and said he has halted all audits of tax-exempt organizations based on political activity as he tries to get a handle on the embattled agency

Mr. Werfel, who was tapped four months ago to clean up the Internal Revenue Service after the targeting came to light, also told Congress he is troubled by emails sent by Lois G. Lerner, the woman at the center of the targeting scandal, that raise questions about her behavior. He said he has asked internal investigators to follow up on those emails.

“There are certain documents that raise questions, and when I looked at them I thought they raised questions,” Mr. Werfel said. “The ones that I thought raised questions I provided directly to [the inspector general], and I also provided them to the accountability review board within the IRS, which is set up to review this matter to see what actions may warrant personnel action or discipline.”

Ask yourself, who had the most to gain by the Tea Party surveillance and harassment? That would be Obama’s reelection of course.

      Of course the IRS not only targeted those that were conservative groups applying for tax exempt status to keep them from getting their message out. Then they took information gathered and passed it to the Democrat campaign organizations to further its ability to keep conservatives from getting their message out.

      The top tier of the IRS should be investigated and those that are a part of this should be charged with treason against the people and if convicted, be taken to a prison for the rest of their lives.
