    The Internal Revenue Service targeted liberal groups as well as conservatives seeking tax-exempt status, a Democratic congressman charged on Monday after the agency acknowledged the inappropriate practice continued until last month.

    Rep. Sander Levin said the term "progressives" was included on IRS screening lists of applicants for tax-exempt status made available to Congress on Monday.
    It was the first confirmation that the "Be on the Lookout" or BOLO lists used criteria targeting liberal groups after an inspector general's report made public last month said the IRS had used words such as "tea party" to determine possible extra scrutiny.


    Can we finally stop pretending that the IRS "scandal" is actually a scandal? The IRS gave extra scrutiny to political groups applying for 501c(4) status. Political groups should be 527's, not 501c's. What we've dealt with so far is a concerted effort by Republicans to selectively release information, giving the appearance of a scandal.

    Their silence suggests they are finally catching on but, despite this lesson, they will soon revert to their old ways.

    WRONG!!!! the overwhelming majority of the targeted groups WERE CONSERVATIVE. ANY Liberal groups targeted excuses NOTHING. Just means the Liberals should join us in their disgust for the IRS.

    Of course they should but they will always put theory and belief before facts and their country.

    Re: IRS targeting included liberal groups

    Yes, the WH, including Obama, his Top Aides, Hillary included orchestrated and carried out illegal targeting of Conservative and additional groups apposed to Obama's twisted ideology via the IRS and other Federal orginizations.

    The IRS illegally released donor list to liberal activist groups and Democrat politicians.

    Every bit of that will be proven eventually.

    The WH, State Dept Secretary and additional state dept employees, after a Sept 11 terroist attack on our New Benghazi Consulate that resulted in the death of four Americans, created a false story about a " protest" because it was politically expediant and have since refused to answer questions from Law Makers while their useful idiot supporters and Obama himself claim it's a phoney scandal.

    The WH, and the DOJ, and the ATF, let walk thousands of high powered assault rifles accross the border, knowing they would wind up in the hands of drug cartels and also knowing it would cost the lives of hundreds of Mexicans.
    For the sole reason, to gin up anti-gun support in America and create a backlash that would result in new gun laws.

    Eric Holder perjured himself in front of a Congressional Comittee.

    The WH, and the DOJ, lied to a judge for the explicit reason to target a reporter who worked for a news source that was unfriendly to the Obama administration.

    Eric Holder perjured himself infront of a Congressional Comittee.

    On top of that Obama has failed as a President and a leader and the economy of the US has been on a steady devline since he sullied the Oval Office.

    Our foriegn policy has made for a far more dangerous and unstable Middle East and has led to more death and more destruction.

    All because the idiots outnumbered the people with a brain in 2008 and 2012.

    Re: IRS targeting included liberal groups

    I just love the weak arse responses in here by liberal progressives that say "Ah Ha!" we found liberal groups too!"

    Yeah, 5 or 7 liberal groups, as compared to hundreds of conservative groups, and clearly IRS leaders attempting to take the 5th, and others doing things to impede the investigation into this, oh yeah, that's fair....

    Do you think it's because conservative groups violate the law more often? I got the idea from cons who justify racial profiling by arguing that since blacks commit most of the crimes, of course the police is going to stop them. So, of course, the IRS is going to profile conservative groups.

    Are you kidding here? Is it a crime to be in opposition to Obama policies?
