    No all I have is an IG report saying thats exactly what they did.

    The IRS used inappropriate criteria that identified for review Tea Party and other organizations applying for tax-exempt status based upon their names or policy positions instead of indications of potential political campaign intervention
    They were targeted for policy positions---IE their beliefs.

    And yet, you still can't quote the IRS saying they targeted groups because they were conservative

    The donors seeking anonymity will not donate under this system, at least until they are approved.

    THEN Al Qaida can donate anonymously.

    IRS admits targeting conservatives for tax scrutiny in 2012 election - Washington Post

    Now combine that with the IG report which said the groups were delayed and investigated more intensely...

    Or you can just say no it isnt again and engage in trolling behavior, your call.

    If one side has anonymous donors and the other doesnt...wow, that looks targeted.

    Al Qaida? Troll harder.

    IRS officials in Washington were involved in targeting of conservative groups - Washington Post
    That article does not contain any IRS quote saying that they targeted groups because they were right wing.

    Nah.

    One vote per person. No problem

    Not everybody has millions to invest in candidates. BIG problem.

    Guess what the job of the executive branch is? To oversee the bureacracy and ensure things like this dont occur. So if they cant...looks like smaller government time to me.
    The AGs report DOES NOT say only conservative groups were "targeted". They made up less than half of the groups subjected to additional scrutiny.

    And all of them were free to operate for years before being approved. With retroactive exemption.

    I don't want ANYBODY buying our govt anonymously.

    If they didn't **** with progressive groups as much, I'm mad about THAT.

    What part of "anonymous" do you not understand?
