    Re: IRS targeting included liberal groups

    Typically, the hacks are coming out. "This new piece of evidence is a lie! It doesn't fit in with my preconcieved notion that I'm being persecuted!"

    Innteresting evidence though. The question is, will Issa listen to it or is he more interested in theater than the truth?

    The IRS just said it's targeting was widespread, but Lerner stated it was rogue agents initially in Cinci and she conferred with the lying perm head IRS Commisioner to plant a question.

    The IRS admitted its scope was more widespread but there is no evidence "anyone did anything wrong"

    But your left to attacking the source.

    You are the one's being laughed at.

    A simplified tax code and this wouldn't even be a discussion.

    I would prefer that the word progressive was in the search. I would hope it would bring us all together to reform the IRS monster.

    A simplified income tax code wouldn't help. Non-profits are a completely different entity.

    What would help is if the IRS denied 501c4 status to all groups that weren't entirely dedicated to social welfare (as stated in the law). Then these political groups would be moved from 501c4 status subject to IRS regulations,, into 527 status regulated by the FEC.

    (Also, it's good that they used progressive even though progressive is a terrible search word for political activism. If you look through the list of approved groups you'll see many progressive baptist churches, and progressive medical groups. None of which have anything to do with politics.)

    Re: IRS targeting included liberal groups

    A November 2010 version of the list obtained by National Review Online, however, suggests that while the list did contain the word “progressive,” screeners were in fact instructed to treat “progressive” groups differently from “tea party” groups. Whereas screeners were merely alerted that a designation of 501(c)(3) status “may not be appropriate” for applications containing the word ”progressive” – 501(c)(3) groups are prohibited from conducting any political activities – they were told to send those of tea-party groups off ”to Group 7822″ for further scrutiny.

    That means the applications of progressive groups could be approved on the spot by line agents, while those of tea-party groups could not. Furthermore, the November 2010 list noted that tea-party cases were “currently being coordinated with EOT,” which stands for Exempt Organizations Technical, a group of tax lawyers in Washington, D.C. Those of progressive groups were not.

    How did I " own myself " ?

    Your'e being laughed at because you apparently haven't the capabillities of objective analysis.

    You actually believe what the IRS is telling you the truth after they so Obviously contradicted themselves.

    Through a planted question, that involved the then acting Commisioner, Lois Lerner stated that targeting involved " low level people " in Cinci.

    Then she took the Fifth.

    Now the IRS says it was wide spread.

    You cant name one Progressive group that was targeted and denied but atorneys like Jay Sekulow are representing close to a hundred Conservative groups, some who had their donor list leaked illegally.

    I'm not the one "owning myself " if you don't even know when your'e being lied to.
