    I wonder if we woulc be demonizing the IRS if Liberals were in the cross hairs?

    -Emerge America,- a liberal group that trains female Democratic candidates, lost its tax-exempt status last year.

    No “Tea Party” group did.

    No, I don’t know why there’s a strike-though in “Emerge America.”

    It doesn’t matter who the IRS was going after; the fact that it was targeting people by keyword in the first place is enough to earn it condemnation.

    If the republicans spent as much tine on something to help the country as the did on defeating this bill , this would be a great congress.

    My favorite IRS movies…
    ^
    Harry’s War http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0082503/
    ^
    The Mating Game http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0053054/

    In the 70’s, Parade magazine, the insert in many of our Sunday papers, had a story with many pictures about how IRS agents ‘collect’ on people who don’t pay taxes. The image of a woman being dragged from her car after it was unlocked burned into my young mind as a severe injustice.
    ^
    It is my understanding the IRS agent who set the parameters used considers himself to be a conservative; that he used similar words in investigating liberal groups as well as conservative; that he was dealing with a record number of new applications for this new status; and that he has apologized for using this ‘tool’ and has ceased using it.
    Am I missing something? Has new information been presented? LInks?
    ^
    The “Despicable Me” in this fiasco seems more likely to be those who would rather find ways to enflame their base rather than seek civil and respectful ways to prevent these events in the future and move on to other issues much more urgently pressing our nation.
    Respectfully,

    So that is where all those questions about who you pray to and book reports come from. You can cry and tell me that everyone got the same keyword search but how come no liberal group got questionnaires? The head lady ADMITTED non liberal groups were TARGETED. oh that is right “bad customer service” was the other excuse.

    @David

    ALL applications were under the cross hairs based on keyword search, not partisan affiliation. Don’t you people ever actually know anything other than what your LEFTWINGNUT ,news nerd ,noise machine tells you to believe?

    Emerge America, a liberal group that trains female Democratic candidates, lost its tax-exempt status last year.”

    If you read the requirements for 501c4 status, the reasons Emerge America (initially, Emerge Maine) was denied 501c4 status become very obvious as those reasons are meticulously listed in a seven page letter from the IRS to Emerge Maine. Emerge Maine’s application caused a review of Emerge America’s chapter’s statuses and a to a revocation of their 501c4 exemption. Emerge organizations then became became 527’s.
