    Pay attention. That was not true, just another passing Issa illusion.

    That’s because the president and its administration did not use the IRS against those that are of a different political slant.

    Right. That’s why Lois Lerner pled the Fifth so she wouldn’t self incriminate herself, and why Holder put someone who gave the Obama campaign a $6000 contribution in charge of the investigation. How naive are you people?

    Last time I checked, all of the Tea Party groups “targeted” by the IRS were able to operate as if they had approval for their 501 ( c) 4 filings through the election cycle. None of them had their applications denied.

    If Obama was trying to take a page from Tricky Dick, he failed miserably.

    That’s because, in spite of continually posting links to the IG report, you’ve never “checked”.

    “The IRS used inappropriate criteria that identified for review Tea Party and other organizations applying for tax-exempt status based upon their names or policy positions instead of indications of potential political campaign intervention… For the 296 total political campaign intervention applications TIGTA reviewed as of 12/17/2012, 108 had been approved, 28 were withdrawn by the applicant, none had been denied, and 160 were open from 206 to 1,138 calendar days (some for more than three years and crossing two election cycles..)

    As a result, the IRS delayed the issuance of letters to organizations approving their tax-exempt status. For I.R.C 501c3 organizations, this means that potential donors and grantors could be reluctant to provide donations or grants. In addition, some organizations withdrew their work. The delays may have also prevented some organizations from receiving certain benefits of the tax-exempt status. For example, if organizations are approved for tax-exempt status, they may receive exemption from certain State taxes and reduced postal rates.. For organizations that may eventually be denied tax-exempt status but have been operating while their applications are pending, the organizations will be required to retroactively file income tax returns and may be liable to pay income taxes for, in some cases, more than two years.“

    I’m actually torn. Part of me wants Snowpocalypse to happen, too, but part of me knows that would favor the Seahawks, and I’m rooting for the Broncos.

    Your argument is pretty weak, IMO. The IRS didn’t stem the tide of money flowing into groups that were not affiliated with a candidate for either side. I’ve said in the past that the real problem is that no group engaging in any political activity should be tax-exempt or be allowed to hide the names of their contributors. Unlike 5 out of 9 Supreme Court Justices, I favor transparency in political contributions.
