The IRS Scandal, Day 232

IRS Logo 2Washington Examiner:  Report: RS Regs Would Silence Obama's Critics, Set No Limits on Liberal Groups:

On Wednesday, WND reported that new rules being proposed by the IRS are designed to silence conservative critics of President Obama while setting no limits on liberal groups.

Mathew Staver, founder and chief counsel of Liberty Counsel, told WND that after the agency was caught "intentionally targeting conservative groups in the prior two elections, now the president wants his IRS to totally silence the voices of his political adversaries.”

According to Staver, the new rules are “designed to silence and greatly restrict the activities of Liberty Counsel Action and other 501(c)(4) nonprofit organizations during the upcoming election year.”

No outrage from the establishment GOP. Clear evidence they have no intention to embrace small government advocates. Big mistake.
