The IRS also forwarded confidential information to the Liberal group ProPublica last year. While approved applications are public information, the IRS had sent 9 as of yet unapproved applications (confidential).

And were told politics played no role in this scenario! BS!

Gooseman "Lets take a really good look and see if Tea Party groups actually qualify as 'tax exempt'"

Do you intend to take a really good look at groups like MoveOn, MediaMatters, the Progressive Policy Institute, ACORN or whatever names they're hiding under now, ActBlue, Progressive Majority, ...

Wonder why the Auditor in Chief's IRS didn't target those clearly partisan organizations? LOL

"Do officials in President Barack Obama's administration believe Americans are stupid? Apparently so. Why would only conservative groups be harassed by the IRS if there were no "partisan reasons" involved?"

SERIOUSLY? Has to be quote of the year.

After calling Obama a Muslim, Communist, Socialist, Kenyan...I wouldnt say those who said that are too bright!!!!! So yes, there is a very large group of right wing haters who are STUPID!

And I wouldnt say they were harassed. Lets take a really good look and see if Tea Party groups actually qualify as 'tax exempt'.....sounds to me like the IRS was doing their job.

Heads need to roll, all right. The heads of right-wing haters and liars who set up these so-called non-political organizations, then proceed to run blatantly political ads. They are about as non-political as the Nazi Party, which they resemble in a variety of ways.

Bottom line: conservative reactionaries, forever on the wrong side of history, are still enraged that Obama has beaten them, not once, but twice. This band of cuckoos, cranks, crackpots and crybabies are as outdated as their old John Birch Society and their "ideas" are as dead as their heroes, John Wayne and Ronald Reagan. (True patriots never have to use the word.)

The message from the feds is clear: grow up and play by the rules or you will be scrutinized. Arrogance and deceit will always have a price.
