    Good one!

    Yep, the old, childish “but Johnny did the same thing” excuse. Try using that line when the IRS comes knocking.

    When is that orange skinned guy going to jail for not doing his job?

    Do Liberals watch NBC News?
    Answer: No!
    Proof: If they did, then Morin would now that Obama said this was wrong and Obama is looking to possibly press criminal charges.

    When Harry Reid goes to jail for not allowing The Senate to read and vote on bills passed by The House

    Not quite true, gendotte. It isn’t the “same” questions asked of all c(4) applicants that are significant. It’s the additional questions.

    Rogue spinning, so far no other liberal cartoonist has made this play.

    Funny thing, though. They asked the same questions of ALL 501cs"
    They ask all of them about their personal facebook pages?
    Sorry you fail

    @mikefive,
    In theory, the exemption under 501c4 comes to a non-profit, not identified as a “religious body”, for the NON-POLITICAL “benefits” such group has to offer.


    The Tea Party as such – and its “subordinates” by any name – IS a “Political Party” – or at least claims to be one. And, insofar as non-political “benefits” to offer be concerned, it – and its “subordinates” by any name – has NOTHING to offer anyone. So, the basic question is clear. WHY does the Tea Party – or any “subordinate” thereof – even seek Tax Exemption?


    The IRS is absolutely RIGHT in questioning the application(s); and seeking PROOF that there be those “non-political” actions and “benefits” claimed as reason(s) for being exempt.
    <p.
    @Harleyquinn,
    As to asking about “personal Facebook pages”: Yes, of course! Are the Officers – and Members – of the organization applying for Tax Exemption intending to use ANY PART of the organization’s funds for “direct political action”, in contravention of long established IRS rules against such? And, then, how “personal” are those pages? Or, are they “personal” at all? All legitimate questions of anyone and everyone seeking Tax Exemption – especially under 501c4.


    You don’t just apply, and DEMAND. You qualify, or you DON’T.

    Such short memories.

    When Bush was in the White House, we were either with him or we were terrorists. He was keeping us safe. That’s the difference.

    Sheesh. Sometimes I wonder about you people.

    I don’t recall any investigations of the MULTIPLE creeps who suggested Bush be killed…

    About time… I have been most fascinated and disappointed how many otherwise reasonably astute cartoonists have simply pigged onto the GOP’s delusion; for instance, that the IRS debacle is even remotely similar to Watergate since both parties have their share of stupidity and political excess that, while vile, is hardly criminal. Watergate, however, was purely criminal. Thanks, Jim…for even a touch of reality.

    IRS likes me. I only take the standard deduction.

    Go to “Reagan Admnistration Scandals” at wikipedia and note the indictments, and CONVCTIONS, even though GHW Bush pardoned many of them.


    One of my favorites was James Watt (“super twit”) who got the lab contract to do all the drug testing of federal employees, even though his company had NO LABORATORY FACILITIES! That was just one of Watt’s insanities, like “use up all our natural resources immediately and take the money because Jesus is coming back, soon.” BTW: I was in on the suit that went to the SCOTUS and we won that time around, and prohibited the government from doing “random drug testing” without probable. There was an exception of pilots and a few other critical jobs where a “first offense without prior history or P.C.” COULD get people killed.
