    Doesn't change the fact that PACs have been abusing the snot out of this. As Congress will not act to fix this, if it takes political abuse to stomp on it, so be it.

    And this is no different from how the Bush Adminstration directed the IRS to audit the NAACP and Greenpeace for no good reason.
    Actually presidents have been using the IRS to punish or eliminate certain groups political or otherwise since its founding. I don't see how anyone can justify criminal behavior by simply saying those bastards are abusing the tax code or that past presidents did it. Everyone should be aware past presidents have done it. How does that change anything?

    I'm curious about how the law actually works on a situation like this.

    It's kind of sad how clueless conservatives are.

    I mean, I'm still not exactly sure what the scandal here is, that the IRS rightly applied more scrutiny to teabaggers last election season?

    You might want to save your pity for yourself if you genuinely don't understand what the scandal is here.

    Ah well, nothing unexpected at least.

    Then I am confident that you will have no problem when the tables are turned.... "teabaggers"? Are we really still using this childish pejorative? What are you 12?

    No, I won't. I can wholeheartedly say that this tempest-in-a-teapot would not bother me in the slightest were the tables turned.

    Then again, I'm leveled headed and don't get whipped up by stupid bull****.

    Replace "teabaggers" with "Black people" and the left would be marching on Washington

    mmmmhmmm....I see. Well, calling people childish names, and attacking other posters instead of addressing arguments is really not debate, nor is it civil discussion of anything. And although we all have our moments of 'bomb throwing' in here, and none of our hands are clean in that regard, your continued posts will tell the tale....Will you start addressing arguments, and give rational responses? or will you continue to deflect, and attack, because of the latter, we already have enough of those in here....Thanks.

    ...Yes, if the IRS applied more scrutiny to applications for non-profit status on the basis of one's race, people would be pissed.

    And rightfully so.
