IG: Audit of IRS actions limited to Tea Party groups at GOP request
The Treasury inspector general (IG) whose report helped drive the IRS targeting controversy says it limited its examination to conservative groups because of a request from House Republicans.
A spokesman for Russell George, Treasury’s inspector general for tax administration, said they were asked by House Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) “to narrowly focus on Tea Party organizations.”
The inspector general’s audit found that groups seeking tax-exempt status with “Tea Party” and “patriots” in their name did receive extra attention from the IRS, with some facing years of delay and inappropriate questions from the agency.
But top congressional Democrats have wielded new information from the IRS this week that liberal groups were also flagged for extra attention on the sorts of “be on the lookout” lists (BOLOs) that also tripped up conservative groups.
The spokesman for the Treasury inspector general noted their audit acknowledged there were other watch lists. But the spokesman added: "We did not review the use, disposition, purpose or content of the other BOLOs. That was outside the scope of our audit.”

In the latest in the ongoing and politicized dispute over the Internal Revenue Service’s mishandling of tax-exemption applications, Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., and Rep. Gerald E. Connolly, D-Va., sent a Feb. 4 letter to Inspector General J. Russell George objecting “strongly to your office’s repeated partisan meetings with Chairman Darrell Issa and his staff after intentionally excluding Democratic Committee Members and staff -- particularly regarding matters that currently are under active investigation by both your office and this committee.” Cummings is the ranking member of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, and Connolly is the top Democrat on the panel’s Government Operations subcommittee.

I guess they have no choice but to give her immunity. The truth is more important than hanging one particular head on a pole.
Islam is an antiquated religion and needs to either modernize with the times or be completely eradicated.
There are two types of Muslims, terrorists, and their enablers. They need to fix that if they want to be part of civilized society.
It was a crime then and the Democrats went nuts.
But now it's cool and any possible probe that might even suggest a remote whiff of an idea that more than this woman were involved should be shouted down and obstructed by rants in the guise of a point of order.
At least the lemmings have moved off the memes that it's racist, Bush did it too, the Republicans are responsible, and combined all of it with the certainty without looking that there is nothing to this.
This very much makes me want to see what the Democratic Party is all about; what I do see is repulsive.

So I'd call your post a deflection fail.No. This issue, and it's investigation, MUST be perused, and present and future administrations MUST be denied the use of the IRS as a political enforcement arm. Anything less is unconscionable, unacceptable.
