Well it looks like that IRS scandal that exposed the unfair targeting of specific political groups is not going away.

Just when they thought it was gone because of a court ruling, here comes a higher court saying the cases are legitimate and should go forward !!

Remember Obama saying “Not a Smidgen of Corruption” ?

Guess we will find who the joke is really on soon enough.

Maybe Lois Lerner was smart taking the 5th and souring herself with a Contempt of Congress citation.


DC Circuit Reinstates Conservative Groups’ Lawsuits against IRS Targeting


Remember the claims from Obama administration fans that the scandal of the Internal Revenue Service targeting Tea Party and conservative groups wasn’t really much of a scandal after all; that it was the result of inadvertence or incompetence and, in any event, has been fully addressed so that it won’t happen again?

A unanimous panel of the DC Circuit Court of Appeals isn’t buying it. Today the circuit’s three-judge panel unanimously reinstated lawsuits against the IRS over the targeting program (PDF). With scathing language, it ruled that a lower court had improperly credited the IRS’s promises that it had ended its abusive targeting and sought to rectify the harms being sued over. In fact, the court said, evidence indicates that the IRS has not only failed to provide adequate guarantees of future good behavior, but continues even now to hassle some of the groups it harassed.

There will be those that will deny this no matter what the court says.

Punishing different ideologies is acceptable to the authoritarian left.
