The IRS was improperly scrutinizing the tax returns of political candidates and donors

July 16, 2013

 Once the IRS admitted the agency inappropriately targeted conservative groups before the 2012 election it was only a matter of time before we learned the scandal went even deeper, and today we have.

  The Treasury Department has admitted the IRS improperly scrutinized the records of some political candidates and donors and this was been going on since 2006.

  The now discredited agency is only admitting to the “unauthorized access or disclosure of tax records of political donors or candidates” of four people at this point, as well as the possibility that two political candidates were improperly targeted for audit but would you be surprised if this went deeper? The NSA spying scandal started out small but grew to the point where we learned that they were also targeting military leaders (David Petraeus?), members of the Congress, and at least one Justice who is now sitting on the Supreme Court. (Could this explain why Chief Justice Roberts changed his Obamacare vote at the last minute?) I expect the same to be learned here before all is said and done.

  There is no mention of who the victims were or of what party affiliation they hold, but I think we know the answer to the latter based on what organizations the agency has already admitted to inappropriately targeting in the recent past.

  Before the 2012 election Harry Reid admitted that he knew people who had seen Mitt Romney’s tax returns for the last ten years and he used this information to smear the presidential hopeful. The one question which should have been on everyone’s mind at that time was not how much did Mitt Romney pay in taxes, but rather how did Harry Reid find out? Now we may know the answer to that question but unfortunately Eric Holder has decided that this is not worthy of an investigation.

    We have one last chance coming up in the forthcoming election cycle. Grim news yet most look the other way.

      Yep, we have one more chance but sadly I do not see anyone on the horizon who is serious about fixing what is wrong in Washington.

    This is the result you get when federal workers are allowed to belong to unions. Get the unions out of the federal government!

    ” Eric Holder has decided that this is not worthy of an investigation.”

    The people spied upon must not have been black.
