IRS stalled conservative groups, but gave speedy approval to Obama foundation - Washington Post
The IRS approved charitable status for the foundation, which was run by President Obama’s brother and named after his father, in about a month’s time. The IRS also agreed to give the group this important financial status retroactively, back to 2009, when it had begun its fundraising.
The 34 days the IRS’s Cincinnati office took to process the foundation’s application stands in contrast to the waits of several months — and sometimes longer than a year — that several conservative groups say they experienced with the same office. Obama has apologized, saying Americans have a right to be angry that the office improperly targeted conservative groups for extra scrutiny.
it is posts such as yours that are the shameless displays of partisanship in this matter
when testifying before congress the IG was asked if he saw any indication that the (objectionable) screening methods used by the IRS employees
had any indication of being politically biased
he, the IG, observed no partisanship
but you and those of your political stripe have certainly made this a partisan political matter
where it did not actually exist
you did not respond to that request
thus, i must conclude your post was a lie, otherwise you could easily have submitted the list of LIBERAL organizations and explained how they were found to be LIBERAL
just more made up bull **** because you have nothing else to use to slam the president
how you cited the Obama organization
let's look at how your referenced articled referenced that now non-profit entity:
what about that says it is engaged in political elections activities?... the Barack H. Obama Foundation sought tax-exempt status to raise money for good works in Kenya ...
of course it sailed thru on the merit of the information contained in the application. if you read the IG report it explained that there were a number of MERIT exemptions for that reason
now, a distinction needs to be made
that Obama organization was approved as a 501c3
what is in dispute was those applying for 501c4
there is a significant distinction between the two, and that distinction is salient to this conversation
