    George Soros behind IRS targeting of Conservatives

    Big Daddy Soros gave $6.1 million to liberal groups linked to the IRS targeting scandal.
    One News Now reported back in May 2013:

    New details regarding the IRS scandal that found the nation’s top tax office intentionally targeting conservative groups are surfacing. Like, for example, the fact that George Soros-funded organizations sent letters encouraging the IRS to investigate conservative organizations.

    According to findings reported by the Media Research Center (MRC), Soros gave $6.1 million to liberal groups who urged the Internal Revenue Service to investigate conservative non-profit organizations, including various tea party and Christian groups.

    Dan Gainor, vice president of business and culture for MRC, says the scandal could be traced to a series of letters that two liberal groups — Campaign Legal Center (CLC) and Democracy 21 — sent to the IRS in 2010 and 2011 asking for an “investigation” of political consultant Karl Rove’s Crossroads GPS.

    “What they need to focus on is this timeline,” Gainor suggests. “We actually carry the timeline here, and the timeline is when these lefty operations sent their letters to the IRS and what the IRS did soon after.”

    Pro Publica, The Huffington Post and Mother Jones were just a few of the accomplices that helped instigate IRS investigations. But as of 2010, Pro Publica received a two-year contribution of $125,000 each year from George Soros’ Open Society Foundations.

    “It is a who’s who of far-left organizations,” the MRC spokesman offers. “Remember — this is George Soros, who has given $8.5 billion to charity. Of that … that we could track, $550 million has gone to liberal operations here in the United States.”

    Re: Obama's George Soros behind IRS targeting of Conservatives

    Doesn't georgie spend a night at the white house now and then? I heard he did but don't know that for a fact? I do believe if GW had a convicted felon staying over at the white house the media wouldn't ignore it.

    Good find, although I find some of the rhetoric a bit over the top.


    It is, though, a solid indication this was not just the whim of an over-eager snivley servant tampering with Tea Partiers, but a well financed and coordinated campaign.

    So much for the continuing Obama lemming bleat that it's a witch hunt.

    So what?

    It's his money, he can give it to whoever he wants, eh?




    As a matter of fact there are a few nice people in the GOP that I would be happy to see him give a little money.

    Re: Obama's George Soros behind IRS targeting of Conservatives

    The roots of this go back to the Citizens United ruling.

    Everyone on the left's panties immediately got into a twist over it and everything in the OP is a direct reaction to it. There was a coordinated strategy to do everything possible to counter the effects that this ruling would have on campaign financing. And don't think for a minute that the right wasn't doing everything they could to exploit this newly opened loophole. Super-pacs anyone?

    The only thing I want to know is did part of anyone's "strategy" involve breaking the law?
