    The obvious conclusion is that more right-wing political groups were committing felonious fraud,
    trying to cheat the Taxpayers AND get undue influence in elections, a two-fer.

    It's a right-wing thing we have going on here in the USA.

    Don't think the ending for this has been written yet.

    BOMBSHELL: IRS Gave Democrats Tax Info on Their Enemies

    So Democrat friends in the IRS helping Democrat friends on the campaign trail and on the hill. Sheds a new light on the narrow Obama win, in spite all these unfair advantages.

    The PJ Tatler Bombshell: Emails Show Democrat on Oversight Committee was Working With Lois Lerner to Target True the Vote (Update: Engelbrecht Reacts)

    Shouldn't committee members in an oversight role be a bit more impartial than this? Shouldn't the IRS be keeping people's private information private rather than distributing to their friends?

    This stinks. Stinks to high heaven.

    Eh, Issa is scum of the earth, an ambitious asshole who is corrupt to the core, and would kill his own grandmother with a corkscrew if it put him in the Oval Office. Nothing he says has credibility. Nothing.

    No. The obvious conclusion is that obama used the IRS to harass and intimidate those that are a threat to him.

    Yeah, you could interprit it that way. Any proof that this position has a foundation?

    Just the same way that you could interpret it in the other way as well.

    Hardly. So, who spends the most on campaigns? The right or the left?

    GOP election talking point--all we're getting now even from normals.

    Whatever. This'll either play out into something, or it won't. Either the Republicans will actually prove something criminal or not. Either the Democrats will have stalled and stonewalled enough that the clock ran out or not.

    Re: Issa uncovers the smoking gun int he IRS targeting of conservatives

    i brought it up once i will bring it up again.

    But there seems to a serious hitch in the drive to punish Lerner. According the records retrieved by the Congressional Research Service, no American has been successfully prosecuted for invoking their Fifth Amendment rights before Congress.

    Congress brought contempt cases 11 times from 1951 to 1968, according the the CRS. Only two of those cases that involved documents -- not personal testimony -- were upheld by the courts.

    Most of the cases involved the House Un-American Activities Committee and its communist witch-hunts in the 1950s. But one that is particularly instructive involves a Buffalo, N.Y., woman named Diantha Hoag, who was fired from her factory job after Sen. Joe McCarthy (R-Wis.) and his Senate Committee on Government Operations accused her of being a communist and she pleaded the Fifth.

    In that case, Hoag answered many more questions than Lerner did. She listed several places where she had lived, said she worked at a Westinghouse plant, and told committee members that she knew Westinghouse contracted with the military. Lerner never went beyond a short opening statement professing her innocence.

    Hoag flatly refused to answer questions about her associates and any communist connections she may have had.

    When McCarthy attempted to compel her testimony through the courts, as Issa is now threatening, a judge did not look kindly on the bid, declaring: “I reach the conclusion that the defendant did not waive her privilege under the Fifth Amendment and therefore did not violate the statute in question in refusing to answer the questions propounded to her. Therefore, I find that she is entitled to a judgment of acquittal on all counts.”
