I'm not arguing either way for any motive I'm just simply pointing out that many of those groups were targeted because of their name because of the search criteria used and not as you claimed in your previous post because they were more likely to be a tax cheat.
I call things as they are and in this case it's pretty clear especially when we have a top IRS official apologizing for singling out groups by using the search criteria that they did.
You are misunderstanding this so completely I hardly know where to begin. The IRS was singling out tea party groups applying for tax exempt status based on their names because a group called "tea party patriots" is less likely to qualify for tax exempt status than a group called "Methodist hospice" or something. It was to catch tax cheats. This so damned obvious to anybody not pushing a political agenda!
So their methods in their search criteria was stupidity on the part of the irs.
Their methods were probably unconstitutional, hence the apology. But the government does unconstitutional things all the time, usually they are pretty shameless. What is different about this? Only selective outrage by the tea party trying to gin up a scandal by loudly complaining and making insinuations about apolitical bureaucrats at an unpopular agency.
