    Only a quarter of the groups investigated were conservative. All of the groups were requesting tax exemption based on their claims of being apolitical. So what did the IRS do? Investigate the ones with political names. Makes sense.

    Sorry, Michael, but “profiling” can, has, and does, save huge amounts of time and money at the IRS, but the “triggers” are more than just “political sounding names”.

    Why are any organizations that aren’t strictly charities granted tax free status?
    The real scandal is in the stupidity of the tax code,
    the reinterpretation of the granting of tax free status by the IRS since 1959,
    Issa wasting the taxpayers money trying to manufacture a scandal where he knows none exists,
    Issa cherry picking information and testimony and trying to suppress the rest,
    Republicans/Fox “news” for promoting the ‘scandal’ where they know none exists.

    ‘Extra scrutiny’??? The fact is, NO liberal/left-leaning orgs were denied. And…the FBI has yet to contact any TEA Party orgs or their reps about the IRS targeting. Carlson fails again.

    It’s important to keep in mind that for modern right wing republicans, absolutely everything that happens during the Obama administration is unAmerican, wrong and just plain evil. Everything that happened during the Bush years was just dandy. How can they ever expect to be given any credence whatsoever?

    Name a conservative group that was unfairly denied tax exempt status. Not just investigated, as so many were, but actually denied.

    denying them would give appeal rights make no decision stops them and they can not appeal
