I'd like to ask semi-regular Publius Novus, who denied numerous times in blog posts here at this site (links available) that True to Vote was ever targeted by the IRS, to comment on this latest development.

I can wait...

"For such treatment, the IRS expresses its sincere apology."
If, by "sincere apology", they mean "here's a big fat check for triple damages", then, yes. Yes, the IRS expressed its "sincere apology".

Thank you for your love, both of truth and your nation, and the way you have expressed it through this long and well thought out series. In a day when so many despair and fail to follow through your desire to make yourself into the type of man you are is an example to others. Congratulations on your ability and your drive.

It's a start, but I'd also like to see personal apologies at sentencing hearings, but that is not going to happen.

Kudos to Dean Caron for following this matter for so many years. He now has the material for a nice book on the IRS scandal.

Day 1772! To think that I was getting impatient at Day 1000. While I may not sympathize with the views of the plaintiff, I was horrified at their treatment. It's reassuring to see this apology.

Too bad they didn't go after Lois Lerner et al personally. I realize Uncle has deep pockets, but they could have hit her too. She has paid no price and is enjoying a fat pension (our tax money), while the plaintiffs also get our (tax)money.
