IRS Supervisor confirms IRS Scandal was not Isolated to Rogue Agents in Cincinnati

Posted by PITHOCRATES - June 22nd, 2013

Week in Review

The IRS abuse of conservatives was not politically motivated.  Because the IRS said so.  Even though the scandal was not isolated to a few rogue agents in Cincinnati.  As we have recently learned (see IRS supervisor in D.C. admits to overseeing ‘tea party’ targeting by David Sherfinski posted 6/17/2013 on The Washington Times).

An IRS supervisor working in Washington told congressional investigators that she personally reviewed applications from groups for tax-exempt status, in testimony that appears to show the agency’s scrutiny of conservative groups extended beyond the confines of the office in Cincinnati.

Holly Paz, who was a supervisor in the Internal Revenue Service’s tax-exempt status division, indicated during an interview with congressional investigators that she did review such applications, but indicated that she believed “tea party” meant political advocacy in general — not necessarily conservative groups.

Ms. Paz said she did not believe any overt political motivation was causing the delays in applications for groups from 2010 through 2012, and that she knew of liberal groups that were heavily scrutinized as well.

Really?  Funny that it appears to be only conservative groups that have come forward reporting this extensive scrutiny.  And that it was only conservatives who were muzzled during the 2012 election.  As they couldn’t collect anonymous donations like those liberal groups could.  As a list of the conservative donors somehow found there way from the IRS to liberal websites.  And the fact that 95% of the policy-makers at the IRS donated to the Obama campaign doesn’t make it political, either.  No.  There’s nothing political going on at the IRS.

So the IRS scandal goes all the way to Washington.  Will the people learn this?  Will the people even care?  Conservatives do.  But those more preoccupied with social media could care less about things not covered in the mainstream media as little more than an afterthought.  But when the networks, Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert hammer away at another GOP ill-informed comment about rape?  That enters social media.  So the people know this.  And care.  Which is why they don’t seem to care about abuses against conservatives.  Because based on what they learn from watching the networks, Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert they just assume they deserve it.  Because they are so intolerant.  Unlike them.  Who are so tolerant that they don’t mind the intolerance of others attacking those they don’t agree with.
