Obama has no involvement and this happened under Douglas Shulman's watch

so you either have to believe the story that it was a few low level employees and that the head of the agency is not responsible for the actions of his employees or you have to blame the head of the agency, who was appointed by Bush

those are the only two choices

If Repubs weren't always acting like a bunch of pussy victims all the time they would realize this was just the action of a couple of employees and the real story is that it's FUCKING AMAZING that the IRS admitted it much less apologized for it

Which president was Douglas Shulman? was he the president between Bush and Obama?  lol

IRS Knew Tea Party Was Being Targeted In 2011: Report


By STEPHEN OHLEMACHER 05/11/13 03:18 PM ET EDT


WASHINGTON — A federal watchdog's upcoming report says senior Internal Revenue Service officials knew agents were targeting tea party groups in 2011.

The disclosure contradicts public statements by former IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman, who repeatedly assured Congress that conservative groups were not targeted.

On Friday, the IRS apologized for what it acknowledged was "inappropriate" targeting of conservative political groups during the 2012 election to see if those groups were violating their tax-exempt status.

The Treasury's inspector general for tax administration is expected to release the results of a nearly yearlong investigation in the coming week.

The Associated Press obtained part of the draft report.

That report says the head of the IRS division that oversees tax-exempt groups learned that groups were being targeted in June 2011. It does not say whether Shulman was notified.

The Internal Revenue Service’s admission that it inappropriately targeted conservative political groups for special scrutiny during the 2012 presidential election only gives congressional Republicans more ammunition as they try to defund and weaken the agency.

For the past few years, Republican lawmakers have sought to slash the funding of the IRS. Reducing the agency’s budget makes it more difficult for it to collect taxes and audit individuals. (Score one for Republicans who dislike high taxes).

But, more importantly, the IRS is also one of the key agencies that will implement the Affordable Care Act. Much of the funding stream for the incoming health care law, arguably the president’s signature legislative achievement, comes from two tax increases: a 3.8 percent hike on investment income for wealthy individuals, estates, and trusts, as well as an additional Medicare tax.

The IRS acknowledging that it targeted conservative political groups during the 2012 election season has sparked bipartisan calls for investigation -- with House Republicans already saying they will hold a hearing on the issue. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor said Friday the Republican-led chamber would investigate the tax-collecting agency for flagging the groups for additional review to see whether they were violating their tax-exempt status. “The IRS cannot target or intimidate any individual or organization based on their political beliefs,” the Virginia Republican said. Cantor’s comments were followed within minutes by House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp saying he would hold a hearing. The IRS on Friday apologized for targeting groups, but Camp, R-Mich., argued the agency had “repeatedly denied” such activity. “The admission by the agency that it targeted American taxpayers based on politics is both shocking and disappointing,” he said. The committee has jurisdiction over the IRS, but it remains unclear whether other House committees also will investigate the issue, in which roughly 300 groups were flagged.

Just months after being slimed by President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign, Mitt Romney supporter and businessman Frank VanderSloot was informed that he was going to be audited not only by the Internal Revenue Service, but by the Labor Department as well.

VanderSloot’s saga was told by columnist Kimberley Strassel in the Wall Street Journal last July.

In April 2012, VanderSloot, who served as the national co-chair of Mitt Romney’s presidential finance committee, was one of eight Romney backers to be defamed as ”wealthy individuals with less-than-reputable records” in a post on the Obama campaign’s website. The post, entitled “Behind the curtain: a brief history of Romney’s donors,” singled out VanderSloot for being a ”litigious, combative and a bitter foe of the gay rights movement.”

Two months later, the IRS informed VanderSloot he and his wife were going to be audited, Strassel reported. Two weeks after that, VanderSloot was notified by the Labor Department that it was going to “audit workers he employs on his Idaho-based cattle ranch under the federal visa program for temporary agriculture workers,” reported Strassel.

“The H-2A program allows tens of thousands of temporary workers in the U.S.; Mr. VanderSloot employs precisely three,” Strassel wrote.....

Internal IRS Mandate: ‘Be on Lookout’ for ‘Organizations…Educating on Constitution, Bill of Rights’
Cybercast News Service ^ | May 12, 2013 | Terence P. Jeffrey
Posted on May 13, 2013 6:51:53 AM EDT by Olog-hai

A timeline of Internal Revenue Service activities that was developed by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration and provided to congressional staff indicates that early last year—as the nation was headed toward a presidential election—the IRS issued a “be on the lookout order” (BOLO) for officials in its “Determinations Unit” to ferret out for heightened scrutiny organizations applying for tax exempt status that were involved in educating Americans “on the Constitution and Bill of Rights.”

The inspector general’s timeline indicates that as early as March 2010 the IRS’ “Determinations Unit” had begun targeting for special scrutiny organizations that used in their tax-exempt applications the words “Tea Party” or “Patriots.” …

Lerner said the practice, initiated by low-level workers in Cincinnati, was wrong and she apologized while speaking at a conference in Washington.


What a crock of sh1t.  That is not how these organizations function.  It all comes from the top.

USBC News Wire- Yet a another major scandal is rocking the already extraordinarily unpopular Obama administration, this time the controversy involves abuses by the IRS in targeting US citizens based on their political views.

It appears that agents used keywords to target groups in opposition to the governing Democratic administration. Remarkably, the agents found it acceptable to single out patriots for unprecedented behavior. The agents singled out their fellow citizens by using keywords such as “patriot” or “tea party” (itself a reference to the earliest American patriots) to identify groups that object to the policies of the current administration. Lois Lerner, senior Internal Revenue Service official, was unable to provide even a single example of similar targeting, harassment or intimidation of leftists organizations...

The Obama administration is the most corrupt US administration in possibly all  US history.  Everything about this administration screams crooks, cronies and incompetent.

Not usually.  Over arching policy decisions normally come down from the top.  Individual programs and lower level policies are then established by the minions to show the senior leaders how their policy goals are being implemented.

however, I don't buy that senior leaders didn't have knowledge of what was going on.  They were kept abreast of the various programs in effect - unless some massive CT is shows otherwise.

This started in 2010 and the director knew about in 2011 and then lied about it. 

Funny too how remember all the liberal pieces of garbage and obama campaign rallied on and on and on about romney's taxes and those of his donors? 

Corruption at its worst.

I'd be shocked if there wasn't at least one person up the ladder who had an idea of what was going on.

let's apply the same standard

fundy libtards denied Bush was responsible for anything so if we're going to apply the same standard then Obama has no fault in this

back in actual reality we have tons of proof of culpability of Bush Admin for 911 and Iraq, etc.. ( I wouldn't blame Bush for gas prices) but we have zero evidence of any culpability of Obama in this non-story

again, my primary point is this is non-story, except for the amazing fact that the IRS apologized

Repubs are in permanent victimhood and just crave the next story that they can feel bad about

and the old "they started it" argument shows itself once again!  i honestly don't know how an adult could post somehting like this and stand behind it.  once again you've devolved into arguing like a 16 year old girl who's mad at her boyfriend.  i'm way too old for this shit.

Tom Brokaw scolded President Obama on Monday, criticizing his response to the IRS' admission that it targeted conservative groups.

The organization apologized on Friday for subjecting groups that had "tea party" or "patriot" in their exemption applications to extra reviews. Brokaw weighed in on Monday's "Morning Joe," expressing his disappointment with the administration.

When asked how the president should respond, he said, "There's only one spin for the president to make, which is to come out and say, 'This is outrageous, it's unacceptable in my administration. I have asked the people who are responsible for this to be removed from their jobs and we're gonna have a complete investigation and then throw a house cleaning if necessary of the IRS.'"

"I'm offended by it," Brokaw continued. "This is not a political issue or a conservative or a liberal issue. It really is about trusting your government especially when it comes to one of the most sensitive parts." He argued that Obama should have had a statement about the scandal. Obama did address the controversy later on Monday during his press conference with David Cameron.

"Let's get this cleaned up and move on," Brokaw said that morning. "Welcome to the second term, Mr. President."

Chuck Todd piled on as well, criticizing what he said was the lack of "outrage" from Democrats about the IRS' admission. "This is outrageous no matter what political party you are," he said.
