Report: IRS deliberately chose not to reveal targeting ahead of 2012 elections



quote:

NBC's Lisa Myers reported this morning that the IRS deliberately chose not to reveal that it had wrongly targeted conservative groups until after the 2012 presidential election:
Non-political appointees gonna civil serve.

quote:

The IRS commissioner "has known for at least a year that this was going on," said Myers, "and that this had happened. And did he share any of that information with the White House? But even more importantly, Congress is going to ask him, why did you mislead us for an entire year? Members of Congress were saying conservatives are being targeted. What's going on here? The IRS denied it. Then when -- after these officials are briefed by the IG that this is going on, they don't disclose it. In fact, the commissioner sent a letter to Congress in September on this subject and did not reveal this. Imagine if we -- if you can -- what would have happened if this fact came out in September 2012, in the middle of a presidential election? The terrain would have looked very different."

Didn't you listen to the hearing this morning?

These are hard working honest civil servants.

I have to say that I did not think I would live to see the day when a story such as this broke and wherein no one actually thinks the sitting president will be in any trouble as a result thereof.

Wrongly targeted conservative groups?

It's not news now. It should have been news before the election.

nothing will happen to the president unfortunately, even though he should be impeached...

Obama will never save face and resign, he puts himself before the country all the time...

He'll lose face with the media eventually if someone high up doesn't fess up and show some indisputable proof of no wrongdoing. I'd just as soon see this happen as impeachment. Impeachment would put you know who in the WH and then the media would give him a clean slate and start their knobslobbing all over again.

But it wasn't politically motivated. It's okay.

The ABC line this morning was "Republicans Target IRS". This will be painted as another Republican witch-hunt, even though this should be very much a bi-partisan issue.

amen

But looking at it in real terms and the lack of concern for any wrong by the administration, it would likely do nothing to deter most voters from continuing their support for Obama.
