Reporter Reveals IRS Harassed Him After Tough Obama Interview



quote:

St. Louis Reporter Larry Conners revealed via Facebook yesterday that he has been “hammered” by the IRS since his much-discussed interview with President Obama. Conners, a veteran reporter, asked tough, but fair question during the interview which was slammed by progressives in media. Conners says:

Shortly after I did my April 2012 interview with President Obama, my wife, friends and some viewers suggested that I might need to watch out for the IRS.

I don’t accept “conspiracy theories”, but I do know that almost immediately after the interview, the IRS started hammering me.

At the time, I dismissed the “co-incidence”, but now, I have concerns … after revelations about the IRS targeting various groups and their members.

Originally, the IRS apologized for red-flagging conservative groups and their members if they had “Tea Party” or “patriot” in their name.

Today, there are allegations that the IRS focused on various groups and/or individuals questioning or criticizing government spending, taxes, debt or how the government is run … any involved in limiting/expanding government, educating on the constitution and bill of rights, or social economic reform/movement.

UPDATE (1:36 p.m.): Conners emails POLITICO:

I’m sorry, but I just was told … Corporate does not want me to do any interviews. Sorry.

He's probably a tax cheat looking for a convenient excuse.

Obama is using the IRS and his gestapo? No! We didn't see this coming, did we?

IRS is obviously corrupt.

They have had enormous powers for years, and it has gotten worse.

Give us a flat tax, get the Feds out of the loophole business, get the IRS out oif Obamacare, and we will see more freedom.

Already saw it and it was a joke. He is about to have so much raining down on him I feel like someone should help him...

Again, joking.

Yeah, local reporters usually have to get crafty to hide their millions.

I am officially going on the record as saying I love our government and totally support everything they do.

They do it all to protect us.

And see my thread. They save every email, call and text along with message board post. Thankfully they have this power to keep us safe.

Actually, since virtually nobody's ever heard of the guy or his "tough" interview, tax cheater is the most likely explanation.

Yes. Just like Romney was "hiding something" and Rex just knew he was a tax cheat. Harry Reid will state from the floor of the Senate about knowing a "close associate" of this journalist that has proof that he is a tax cheat.
