Tea Party Groups, Pro-Israel, 9/12 Projects Among Those Targeted
By Harold Hutchison
The Internal Revenue Service admitted over the weekend that a number of conservative groups, including Tea Party organizations, groups that support Israel, and even some 9/12 Projects. The IRS admission came on the heels as the Obama Administration reeled after testimony from whistleblowers released huge bombshells.
The allegations were initially reported in February 2012 by TheBlaze.com. There had been other incidents, including the leaking of the unredacted Form 990 of the National Organization for Marriage, which has opposed the redefinition of marriage. The form found its way to the Human Rights Campaign.
Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin, the 2008 Republican vice-presidential nominee, said in a Facebook post, “Americans should remember that this same corrupt IRS will be in charge of enforcing Obamacare. And this same inept and corrupt government will supposedly secure our now unsecured borders in advance of immigration reform and will implement a completely ethical and non-political IPAB panel to make life and death health care decisions for you and your family. Forgive me for not trusting these big government promises any more than I trust the White House’s latest Benghazi spin or the IRS’ fairness.”
The House Ways and Means Committee announced it will hold hearings on the scandal.
