    They must have thought they did something wrong.
    That's why I'm more concerned about this than the bs called "Benghazi".

    And his obvious attempt in destroying the Republican party.

    Regardless, any of the people who abuse such positions need to be fired.

    Do you agree with that?
    Jobs are very hard to find these days.

    If you look at some of the information they requested from the link above, it seems they went much farther with the request tan they needed to in order to approve or deny the application.

    A lot of that information does not seem relevant to the application.

    Why do they need to know so much about every employee or if the organization has had any contact with the news media?

    I think we should remove tax exempt status for everything, and then remove corporate taxes altogether. This eliminates peoples problems with tax exempt status and simplifies the tax code so that only individuals incomes are taxed (no matter how they earn it).

    AP Exclusive: Watchdog report says senior IRS officials knew tea party groups targeted in 2011 - The Washington Post

    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.
    The plot thickens

    It doesn't matter if the act was perpetrated by low level employees or higher up. There needs to be an investigation. E-mails, phone records, memos, and the works need to be combed through and reviewed to find the person(s) responsible.
    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

    And it gets even thicker. come to find out it wasn't only conservative groups that were unjustly profiled. Jewish organizations were also singled out for extra scrutiny

    Using Government agencies/institutions to target political opposition = Fascism

    Have a nice day
    Fascism is actually a fairly specific ideology. It's not just a synonym for "big overbearing government."

    Sounds like liberals huh?

    Fascism is Big Government Left Wing Collectivist ideology

    It's just a brand of Socialism like Coke and Pepsi and brands of soda. Just another branch on the Collectivist tree. Very telling that you're so eagerly defending the IRS acting like the Gestapo and being used as a political tool to harass and intimidate people politically

    You're just googling things and linking the first random source you find. Comical and embarrassing. Like I said, you were going to lose this debate badly and you are.
