    IRS Cincinnati Unit Gave Speedy Approval to Obama-named Foundation

    This must come as a huge shock to everyone, right?

    IRS stalled conservative groups, but gave speedy approval to Obama foundation - The Washington Post

    When the Barack H. Obama Foundation sought tax-exempt status to raise money for good works in Kenya, the Internal Revenue Service provided quick help.

    The IRS approved charitable status for the foundation, which was run by President Obama’s brother and named after his father, in about a month’s time. The IRS also agreed to give the group this important financial status retroactively, back to 2009, when it had begun its fundraising.

    The 34 days the IRS’s Cincinnati office took to process the foundation’s application stands in contrast to the waits of several months — and sometimes longer than a year — that several conservative groups say they experienced with the same office. Obama has apologized, saying Americans have a right to be angry that the office improperly targeted conservative groups for extra scrutiny.

    Workers at the IRS and several government agencies are represented by an overwhelmingly democratic union. This should not shock anyone.

    It was clearly not a political group. Less scrutiny would be required.

    Tea Party groups, on the other hand, clearly are engaging in political activity.

    The examples you're looking for to show bias will be liberal groups that are left-wing equivalents of the tea party: clearly a primarily political organization.
