Looks like the IRS has again admitted they in fact were targeting Conservative groups who applied for tax exempt status.

Finally they have released a list of targets.

And we know some lawsuits are ongoing.

The IRS did all they could to dodge the Obama agenda when the scam hit the public a couple of years ago.

Wonder if the liars will ever be totally identified?

More than 400 targets have been identified so far.

IRS finally reveals list of tea party groups targeted for extra scrutiny


More than three years after it admitted to targeting tea party groups for intrusive scrutiny, the IRS has finally released a near-complete list of the organizations it snagged in a political dragnet.

The tax agency filed the list last month as part of a court case after a series of federal judges, fed up with what they said was the agency’s stonewalling, ordered it to get a move on. The case is a class-action lawsuit, so the list of names is critical to knowing the scope of those who would have a claim against the IRS.

But even as it answers some questions, the list raises others, including exactly when the targeting stopped, and how broadly the tax agency drew its net when it went after nonprofits for unusual scrutiny.

Tea Party groups are fishy and SHOULD be targeted for extra scrutiny...I think

Before the apologists show up to claim "progressive groups were targeted too", that's a lie.

No, 'Progressive' Groups Weren't Targeted by the IRS Like Conservative Organizations Were


A November 2010 version of the list obtained by National Review Online, however, suggests that while the list did contain the word “progressive,” screeners were in fact instructed to treat “progressive” groups differently from “tea party” groups. Whereas screeners were merely alerted that a designation of 501(c)(3) status “may not be appropriate” for applications containing the word ”progressive” – 501(c)(3) organizations are prohibited from conducting any political activities – they were told to send those of tea-party groups off IRS higher-ups for further scrutiny. That means the applications of progressive groups could be approved on the spot by line agents, while those of tea-party groups could not. Furthermore, the November 2010 list noted that tea-party cases were “currently being coordinated with EOT,” which stands for Exempt Organizations Technical, a group of tax lawyers in Washington, D.C. Those of progressive groups were not.

Veracity, just wow... There is a lot you do not know and the media has gotten you good. The Tea Party groups are against unconstitutional taxation and other government overreach. So yes, as a threat to the establishment, they should be watched.....

*edit* Then we have groups who commit real violence and terrorism, like BLM, and they go unchecked. So the lesson here is, the groups being targeted are doing something right.

I hope to see Los Lerner's pension stopped and all monies paid recovered. I hope the same happens to everyone involved in her schemes.

Is that too much to ask?

And this part of the article that the post linked explains that the 'Progressive' doesn't stop at the title.

A November 2010 version of the list obtained by National Review Online, however, suggests that while the list did contain the word “progressive,” screeners were in fact instructed to treat “progressive” groups differently from “tea party” groups. Whereas screeners were merely alerted that a designation of 501(c)(3) status “may not be appropriate” for applications containing the word ”progressive” – 501(c)(3) organizations are prohibited from conducting any political activities – they were told to send those of tea-party groups off IRS higher-ups for further scrutiny.

I have a feeling that the scheme wasn't necessarily hers.

They way they behave these days, anyone in Washington with an axe to grind against "the little people" is suspect.

Part two of Nixon articles of impeachment was: using the IRS against his political opponents. Someone should ask Hillary about this. You think her opinion has changed since she thought this was an impeachable offense.

That's why it still boggles my mind how the left has cemented Nixon as this really bad guy, yet they all yawned at this and they shrugged their shoulders when the IRS commissioner claimed he couldn't produce emails because "hard drive crash".
