I was dismayed this morning when I read in one of my favorite online news outlets that:
Agent: IRS Still Targeting Tea Party Groups
My first thought was that obviously the IRS is not feeling enough pressure to do the right thing even with ongoing lawsuits. Then it hit me. There is no public pressure because the mainstream media has not chosen to report on the ongoing lawsuits as new information becomes available. There has been minimal coverage on the release of a recent interview of an IRS agent where the agent testified that, per management orders, agents are still required to apply more scrutiny to tea party groups than other non-profit groups.
If you’d like to read more about this testimony, click on this link: http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/irs-targeting-tea-party/2013/08/08/id/519515?s=al&promo_code=14767-1.
Kudos to Congressman Dave Camp, chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, for sharing the interview. Kudos, too, to the Washington Examiner and Newsmax for responsible reporting of the news!
We must keep the heat on the IRS! If you or anyone you know have information on undue IRS scrutiny on grassroots organizations, please contact me at email@example.com.
