    IRS official Lerner speedily approved exemption for Obama brother’s ‘charity’

    Lois Lerner, the senior IRS official at the center of the decision to target tea party groups for burdensome tax scrutiny, signed paperwork granting tax-exempt status to the Barack H. Obama Foundation, a shady charity headed by the president’s half-brother that operated illegally for years.

    According to the organization’s filings, Lerner approved the foundation’s tax status within a month of filing, an unprecedented timeline that stands in stark contrast to conservative organizations that have been waiting for more than three years, in some cases, for approval.

    Lerner also appears to have broken with the norms of tax-exemption approval by granting retroactive tax-exempt status to Malik Obama’s organization.

    The National Legal and Policy Center filed an official complaint with the IRS in May 2011 asking why the foundation was being allowed to solicit tax-deductible contributions when it had not even applied for an IRS determination.

    In a New York Post article dated May 8, 2011, an officer of the foundation admitted, “We haven’t been able to find someone with the expertise” to apply for tax-exempt status.

    Nevertheless, a month later, the Barack H. Obama Foundation had flown through the grueling application process. Lerner granted the organization a 501(c) determination and even gave it a retroactive tax exemption dating back to December 2008.

    The group’s available paperwork suggests an extremely hurried application and approval process. For example, the group’s 990 filings for 2008 and 2009 were submitted to the IRS on May 30, 2011, and its 2010 filing was submitted on May 23, 2011. Lerner signed the group’s approval [pdf] on June 26, 2011.

    It is illegal to operate for longer than 27 months without an IRS determination and solicit tax-deductible contributions.

    The "within a month" thing is quite telling. The fact that it was done retroactively is not. It is customary for applications to be approved retroactively, using the stamped date on the envelope.

    The IRS is a tool of the Democrat Party... plain, pure and simple. That Frau Lerner took the 5th after giving a statement during a hearing means our government took the 5th.

    Frau Lerner should be fired, and she should repay the American public all wages earned during her time at the IRS.

    After 8 years of no IRS, it has been difficult to adjust to having this agency again. What nuisances they are! Demanding a share of MY money.

    Former IRS Commissioner Visited White House 118 Times During Tea Party Targeting

    According to Republican Rep. Jim Jordan and White House visitor logs, former IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman visited the White House 118 times in 2010 and 2011. This is the same time period when Tea Party groups were inappropriately targeted and intimidated by the IRS.

    The head of the IRS visited Bush 43 once in four years. 60-times a year during Obama's Banana Republic.

    The Gestapo/IRS is what we have. And Obama's brother must have believed we are a thuggish Banana Republic... and we are under our current administration.

    That number has already been debunked.

    I have heard this was retroed to three years prior.
    I am not of the mind that a man is either of science or of religion. At his best and his worst, man exists in the misty glimmering where the falling angel meets the rising ape. That he chooses a direction from that point defines him as human.
