    CNN Reports No Charges Likely In ‘IRS Scandal’

    This comes as no surprise to this observer, how can you charge some one for doing their job. In the beginning it looked like only conservative groups were targeted, but as time wore on it came apparent that progressive were targeted as well. There were a total of 298 groups created by the BOLO ("Be On The Lookout") list, six of them were progressive. Conservatives have contended the remainder (or 292) were conservative, however the inspector general report says only 96 of them were conservative. The larger differences is due to the number of Tea Party and 9/12 groups created.

    Yep. When the gov't investigates itself then generally all is found to be OK.

    Not with that bitch Eric Holder, nor the currant makeup of our congress.

    Charges will certainly be filed at some point after the midterms or after Obama is done in 2016 (assuming a republican or non-progressive wins).

    The problem is that those who do have the power to file charges (such as Holder) applaud what happened and have absolutely no desire to file charges.

    That's just our present reality - progressives are extremely partisan and hateful to anyone who opposes their ideas and if they have power to do so they will make like hell for anyone who opposes them....

    wait who else would be able to investigate it though?

    I'm sure the government is completely honest about it all

    Bingo....

    I wouldn't say the whole government falls into that category - Many want heads to roll but for the most part democrats, RINO's and progressives will protect their own... Neither of those groups/organizations or parties likes the Tea Party so, or other libertarian leaning organizations so....

    In this case I believe it would be either Obama, or Holder that would appoint one, and SP's have subpoena power. But I won't hold my breath that either of those two criminals will do the right thing here, because SP's are independent.
