The IRS Scandal, Day 864

IRS Logo 2CNN, IRS scandal Fast Facts:

Here’s some background information about the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) scandal involving the targeting of certain groups. In May 2013, the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration released a report indicating the targeting involved delaying the processing of applications by certain conservative groups and requesting information from them that was later deemed unnecessary.

The Justice Department is investigating circumstances surrounding the disappearance of IRS emails that Republicans believe could shed light on the possible targeting of conservative and other political groups by the agency.

Other Facts: The investigation into the email disappearance, which the IRS said was due to a crash of former IRS official Lois Lerner’s hard drive, is part of a wider criminal probe of whether any IRS employees broke the law in unfairly singling out specific political groups for extra scrutiny.

Dean Caron, thank you for providing this archival record of the egregious abuse of authority by lawless government bureaucrats and the subsequent stonewalling and cover-up by IRS administrators.

Still waiting for the MSM to begin covering this huge political scandal. Imagine if there were a Republican administration in power. It's be news 24/7, 365 with the Sunday Talk Shows full of..."what did the President know and when did he know it"? Isn't it amazing how "news" changes when there's a Democrat to protect?
