    I'm not reading anything. It's up to you to show us how the IRS is justified in asking applicants about their religious habits, as part of an investigation.

    I agree, don't get me wrong. I think she should be held accountable and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. However, she's already cut a deal with the regime and she will have a nice, comfortable life.

    you are the one claiming they acted out of line, yet there is no proof of them doing so. Tax exempt status has special standing which the IRS is tasked with determining. Therefor it is their job to determine if you fit the requirements. if you want to proceed without reading the tax code then please continue, but do not blame the rest of us when you make a terrible argument like it is wrong for the IRS to determine if you are operating properly within the codes of a tax free organization.

    You claimed they were doing their job by the book. I asked you show us where in the book it says that asking questions about religion are a part of an investigation. The ball is in your court, darlin'.

    are you still trying to argue the IRS did nothing wrong?

    this has been gone over a thousand times in these forum hundred of links have been provided. and if you still think the IRS did nothing wrong any one who tries to argue with you different is doing nothing but wasting there time nothing and I mean nothing would convince you other wise

    Lois Learner is the one who claimed "they" acted out of line when shed plead the fifth. Perhaps there is an ambiguous circumstance that would clear her (unlikely) but if true there is no such circumstance to clear everyone involved or she would not have plead the fifth except to avoid admitting her guilt.

    Oh, so you have made the jump from pleading the fifth to being guilty. That only works for the public, so that little bit of logic is not going to help any conviction. Of course, some of us know it is better to STFU even when innocent than to help the prosecution or police create a case against you. Never speak to the police or an investigator without a lawyer present. never incriminate yourself, especially when the republicans are playing make believe.

    No proof of them doing so?
