The IRS Scandal, Day 1402: IRS Locates 7,000 Documents Related To Tea Party Targeting

IRS Logo 2Washington Free Beacon, Two Years Later, IRS Locates 6,924 Documents Related to Tea Party Targeting; Agency Will Not Commit to a Timeframe to Make the Documents Public:

The Internal Revenue Service has located 6,924 documents potentially related to the targeting of Tea Party conservatives, two years after the group Judicial Watch filed a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit for them.

The watchdog group intended to find records regarding how the IRS selected individuals and organizations for audits that were requesting nonprofit tax status.

The agency will not say when it will make the documents available to the public.

I'm sorry, but you have to know there was White House coordination on this. They've had 2 years to sort through documents and get rid of the really incriminating ones so, no matter what comes out, there will always be some doubt that we have it all.

Hopefully we'll continue making progress now.

Surpise, surprise. This kind of thing makes certain media outlets that declare politically-interested stories "closed" or "dead" look really stupid. Not to mention certain regulars around here...
