IRS employees were ordered to send Tea Party applications to an Obama appointee for approval before the 2012 election

July 17, 2013

 When the IRS targeting scandal first broke we were assured by the Obama regime that this was an isolated incident and, much like we heard about Operation Fast and Furious, the work of rogue agents Ohio acting on their own and not at the direction of higher ups in the corrupt organization.

  However this was shown to be a lie when the rogue agents who supposedly acted on their own, and whom the Obama regime intended to make the fall guys, testified under oath that they were following orders from above.

  Then came the curious case of Lois Lerner: When called upon by the Congress to testify on the IRS scandal she invoked her fifth amendment right and refused to testify on the grounds that she cannot be compelled to incriminate herself while claiming she did nothing wrong. She is now in the process of trying to gain immunity in return for her testimony.

  While I do not have any problem whatsoever with Lois Lerner for invoking a right guaranteed in the constitution when you couple it with her quest for immunity it does make one wonder if she has something to hide, and if so what is she trying to hide?

    Now we might just have the answer to that question because according to this article in an interview with Carter Hull, who has almost 50 years experience in the IRS, he stated that he had determined that he had enough information on the Tea Party groups to make a decision on them but was not allowed to.

  We can only assume that he was prepared to approve them because his advice was not followed and he was told by Lois Lerner that these applications must be sent to Washington for further scrutiny and a final decision:

[B]ased on his decades of experience, [career IRS official Carter Hull] determined he had enough facts to make recommendations whether to approve or deny the applications . … However, Mr. Hull’s recommendations were not carried out.  Instead, according to Michael Seto, the head of Mr. Hull’s unit in Washington, Lois Lerner instructed that the Tea Party applications go through a multi-layer review that included her senior advisor and the Chief Counsel’s office 

  Why were his recommendations not followed unless they were at odds with the preferred action of the Obama regime? These applications were then forwarded to William Wilkins, who just happens to be an Obama appointee, for the final decision. And as we all know, that decision was delayed until after the 2012 election.

  With Ohio being one of the pivotal battleground states, if not THE battleground state, in the last election is it any wonder that the Obama regime held up these applications until after the election? America’s Watchtower has never once made the claim that the 2012 election was stolen, although I came close when the scandal first broke, but after reading this one has to wonder how big of a role the IRS scandal played in the reelection of Barack Obama…..

    There were some darn close house and senate races. It could have tipped them as well. I cannot imagine the 2014 election.

    The President and his thugs are dragging their feet so they can adversely affect the 2014 election. These are the tactics of union thugs who only want power and money. Once again the Tea Party is being muzzled because the IRS won’t approve their applications. This is the IRS’s proposal.

    “Last month, the IRS offered to expedite the application process for organizations seeking 501(c)(4) status by creating an arbitrary 60/40 standard for groups which would require organizations to agree to devote 60% or more of their time and expenditures on activities to promote social welfare, and 40% or less on political activity.”

    Again this is not getting the attention it needs. Instead a phony race case is put on display to distract the public. The Dem know the public can’t pay attention to technical issues because they don’t involve graphic images.

    Wake Up America!

      Yeah, if he is able to ride this out until after the election and the Democrats get control of the House he will be able to do whatever he wants without fear of Oversight Committee hearings and he will be able to complete the transformation of America.

        That is why the Zimmerman case is important to their 2014 election message. The LIV will rally behind a false message of the liberal left and the msm. The Rep and Tea Party are going to blindsided.

        Agreed, the media will now focus on these protests and probably help to escalate them as well so they can continue to report on this while ignoring what is happening in Washington.

    One more nail in the coffin, as far as I am concerned. The bias against conservative groups is clear to see.

      There is no doubt what the motivation here was and it is way beyond time for someone to be held accountable.
