    He defended them by shifting blame to their superiors who told them to do it. I will try to keep up if you will try to think a bit...

    For the same reason that Media Matters is tax exempt.

    you are the last person on these boards to make that statement
    On what level of idiocy does one have to be, to think this is ok?
    let's see. IRS staff auditing financial data to monitor compliance. and then we see organizations which are political and in their political discussions advocate non-compliance with tax authorities
    nothing there smacks of idiocy. i would instead commend the staff for aptly recognizing that groups expressing political values and opposing tax compliance are more likely to be "political" and "non-compliant" with tax laws
    but tell us why you believe otherwise. i need a laugh

    The most amazing part, is how you people are swooping in to defend these asshats.
    i think that a TSA agent who selects someone who fits the bomber profile for strict scrutiny rather than an elderly woman needing assistance to walk, is smarter than the agent who does the opposite
    tell me why you support the agent who does the opposite; selects for audit those with little expectation of being found non-compliant

    They were discriminated against, because of their perceived political ideology. Is discrimination ok, as long as it's not against the, "wrong", group?

    Ahh the old standard, blame Bush!

    "I.R.S. is an independent enforcement agency," said Carney. "The -- which I believe, as I understand it, contains only two political appointees within it. The individual who is running the I.R.S. at the time was actually an appointee from the previous administration."

    If you were correct in your defense of this shameful behavior, the IRS wouldn't have apologized...LOL!!!!

    You ARE aware that the IRS admitted wrong doing, here. Yes?

    Who do you think assigns people to perform their jobs.
    So, maybe there IS a conspiracy?
