    Remember ... the early story was it was only a couple of jamokes in Cincy.
    The punchline was that they thought "Tea Party" was a catch-all that could have meant right or left groups.
    When you read that ya coulda turned off your set.
    So what? That tells me sweet frig all.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Are you actually going to play ignorant and believe this line of crap?

    "Paz said agents in Cincinnati openly talked about handling "tea party" cases, but she thought the term was merely shorthand for all applications from groups that were politically active — conservative and liberal."

    Why is it you think that there's always some sort of sinister thing behind every action?

    you do when it is a sinister action and they lie about it.

    your letting you ideology cloud common sense and logic
    If it sounds like a duck, walks like a duck, looks like a duck, and smells like a duck you are very safe to assume it is a duck
    unless it is some one like you who doesn't want it to be a duck and plays stupid and ignores everything that says it is a duck

    Did you read the article?

    Paz told congressional investigators that an IRS agent in Cincinnati flagged the first tea party case in February 2010. The agent forwarded the application to a manager because it appeared to be politically sensitive, Paz said. The manager informed Paz, who said she had the application assigned to a legal expert in Washington.

    You haven!t been paying attention because the "local rogue agent" spin has been debunked for weeks.

    Re: IRS supervisor in DC scrutinized tea party cases

    ms paz went missing a week ago, fyi

    The agency told employees that Holly Paz is being replaced as director of the rulings and agreements division, according to a memo distributed to staffers on Friday and obtained by POLITICO Monday.

    The memo doesn’t provide details about whether Paz was fired, placed on administrative leave or moved to another position inside the agency. The IRS didn’t immediately respond to questions about the personnel change.

    A top Internal Revenue Service considered a key player in the political targeting scandal that’s hit the agency in recent weeks was fired and had since dropped from sight, one media outlet claimed in a Friday report.

    Nobody’s seen or heard from Holly Paz, the director of the IRS Rulings and Agreements division, since she was fired last Friday, National Review Online reported.

    “As of Thursday, the voice mail on Paz’s work phone remains active and callers are asked to leave a message for Paz, though nobody answered repeated calls placed to that number,” NRO reported. “Calls to the mobile phone number listed under Paz’s name in the IRS’s internal directory are sent straight to voice mail and indicate her mailbox has not yet been set up.”

    Re: IRS supervisor in DC scrutinized tea party cases

    It is my understanding that the reason some of these applications sat for so long is because they literally did not know what tho do with them. In 2010, right after the Citizens United ruling(you remember when Obama scolded the SCOTUS during the 2010 State of the Union address?) it became advantageous for political groups to file 501c4 instead of 527. 527s have to disclose their funding sources where, because of Citizens United, 501c4s no longer had to. Starting in 2010, the IRS began to get flooded with 501c4s to process and many of those applications really didn't meet "the spirit" of what 501c4 designation was supposed to be all about.

    This scandal, at least to me, has nothing to do with whether or not some Tea Party groups got unfairly targeted. The fact of the matter is that they shouldn't have been filing 501c4 in the first place. The part that needs investigation is, was the IRS being used as a tool for information laundering? Remember, 501c4s no longer have to reveal their donors. At the same time, there were attack ads and op-eds galore during the 2012 campaign which focused on corporate money and who was donating to what to who. If all or at least some of this information was technically supposed to be anonymous, where was it all coming from?

    Wanted to illuminate a little bit here. The Obama Admin, and its willing-dupe Press, continuously chime that it was somehow contained to the "Cincinnati Office", which is to make it sound as though its just one regional office, and not systemic.

    Here is what they do not tell you. The "Cincinnati Office" was that department of the National IRS that processed almost all of the 501C requests for the entire country. So why not call it the "main 501C office", which happens to be located in Cincinnati ? Because its part of the disinformation campaign !
