One of the Tea Party groups that was targeted hard by the Obama IRS(S) has finally got their tax-exempt status !

The Democrats really tried hard to limit any groups that were not "their own" from getting any power.

The IRS targeting was exposed and admitted to, and it took down a few insiders like Lois Lerner etc.

I bet Obama and quite a few others are biting their lip today.


Albuquerque Tea Party granted tax-exempt status after 8 years

It’s taken nearly eight years, but the Internal Revenue Service finally granted tax-exempt status to a Tea Party group in what lawyers representing the group on Wednesday called a “major victory for free speech.”

Graham Bartlett, president of the local Tea Party, said he was informed about a month ago that the group's request was going through, The Albuquerque Journal reported.

The group filed its request in December 2009. Several months later, the IRS demanded more documentation concerning the organization's activities. The group complied, but then the IRS requested even more documentation. The Tea Party provided more than 1,000 pages of documentation about the group's activities. Eventually, it filed a lawsuit against the IRS.

"What I understand is the IRS was targeting any organization that had the name 'Tea Party' in it or the word 'conservative,'" Bartlett said. "We weren't the only ones."

The Koch brothers must be happy.

Is the Tea Party still a thing though? I haven't seen anything about them for a long time now.

Not sure what Obama's corruption has to do with the Koch Bros? Are you suggesting they made Obama target Tea Party groups?

I don't see the connection.

Can we officially classify the right wing as a religion now?

I mean, it fits all the other criteria. Belief without evidence, etc..

That might be because you're wearing partisan blinders.

A non-profit with a political group as part of their name? Golly why wouldnt the IRS take a harder look at that.

Obama using the IRS's Lois Lerner to punish political opponnents...no corruption here, right ? Just a normal day for a third world-like dictator...
