    There's no question that various Democrat Congresspeople were scared shotless of the Tea Party and "suggested" that the IRS review their applications for tax breaks.
    But you think the WH didn't know and that's your call.
    It does kinda follow given they say they had no idea about the Benghazi and VA scandals among others but I'm not at all sure that's something to be proud of ... or to believe.

    Read the following news article from USA Today and give me your opinion.

    Transcripts show IRS agents in Cincinnati -- not Washington -- flagged Tea Party cases

    VA Scandal You bet, but it's been that way for a long time.

    Right-wing media falsely claimed that newly released documents from Judicial Watch showed that Sen. Carl Levin (D-MI) pressured the IRS to target conservative groups for additional scrutiny. Levin's letters simply show that he asked the IRS to hold both Democratic and Republican groups accountable to valid tax-exempt regulations, and he made his correspondence public record more than a year ago.
    That's your opinion. Contrary to Obama there's more than a “smidgen” of corruption and some of it has Democrat's paw prints all over it.

    “In the fall of 2012, True the Vote received a series of letters — eight, nine, 10 page letters from Elijah Cummings out of the blue, conducting what he claimed was ‘his investigation of True the Vote,’” she continued. “Now mind you, the jurisdiction of the House Oversight & Government Reform Committee is federal agencies. It is not private citizens’ groups in Houston, Texas.

    Congressman Cummings sent this series of letters demanding all this material and information from True the Vote. This went on for several months, and then he would get on national TV, MSNBC of course, and before the letters had been received by True the Vote he’d be waving these letters around and that he’s conducting an investigation, which of course he has no authority under the House rules to do.”.....snip~

    Transcripts show IRS agents in Cincinnati -- not Washington -- flagged Tea Party cases

    ...The Tea Party affair started with a Feb. 25, 2010 e-mail (see below) from Cincinnati-based IRS agent Jack Koester to his boss, Screening Group Manager John Shafer. Shafer, in turn, sent it to his superiors, including some Washington staff, elevating it as a "high profile case."

    The Cincinnati employees weren't quite sure what the Tea Party was, but they knew it was politically sensitive. "This case will be sent to inventory for further development. Political campaigns on behalf (of) or in opposition to any political candidate do not promote social welfare," Shafer wrote to his bosses. The Tea Party groups were seeking tax exempt status as "social welfare" groups.

    A few days later, Shafer came back to Muthert asking him to look up how many Tea Party cases had been received, and how many had already been approved. "He told me that Washington, D.C wanted some cases," Muthert said, according tot he transcripts.

    Shafer, though, told congressional investigators that he asked for the list on his own -- not on orders from Washington. "No one said to make a search," he said.

    "Based on what I saw at the time, this organization is something — I don't know what it is, but it is something that appears to be growing, some type of movement," Muthert said. "So when I was asked to research the Tea Parties, it was like OK, I understand why you would want me to look at these cases and see if there is going to be a million coming in or not."...
