    Among the criteria used by IRS officials to flag applications was a "Be On the Look Out" list, which was discontinued in 2012, the report said.

    The criteria included:

    -- Whether "Tea Party," "Patriots" or "9/12 Project" was referenced in the case file.

    -- Whether the issues outlined in the application included government spending, government debt or taxes.

    -- Whether there was advocating or lobbying to "make America a better place to live."

    -- Whether a statement in the case file criticized how the country is being run.

    -- Whether it advocated education about the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
    not partisan, huh, mr miller?

    did you hear how congressman gerlach spoke to mendacious miller?

    When Miller said he didn’t know about that, Gerlach asked him — in a tone that made it clear it wasn’t optional — to “check all of your records, all of your notes, all of your emails and get back to this committee.”

    McCaskill Calls For Firing Of All Involved In IRS Targeting Scandal CBS St. Louis

    Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-MO, issued a video statement Friday in response to reports that the Internal Revenue Service unfairly targeted conservative nonprofit groups.

    “I’m mad. It is un-American, it is wrong, and we have to make sure that this gets fixed,” Missouri’s senior senator said. “There’s a reason Lady Justice wears a blindfold in America. That is because in America, we don’t apply the law based on who you are, who you know, or what you believe. We apply the law equally.”

    McCaskill went on to say that the targeting of one group based on political beliefs “infuriates” her.

    “We should not only fire the head of the IRS, which has occurred, but we’ve got to go down the line and find every single person who had anything to do with this and make sure that they are removed from the IRS and the word goes out that this is unacceptable,” she said. “It is un-American, it is wrong, and it cannot occur again.”

    McCaskill concluded by saying many groups claim to be charities while doing political work and that it is a problem which needs to be fixed “but not in a way that highlights one belief over another.”
    fire em all! justice is blind!

    how righteous...
