IRS chief: Inappropriate screening was broad


quote:

The Internal Revenue Service's screening of groups seeking tax-exempt status was broader and lasted longer than has been previously disclosed, the new head of the agency said Monday.

"We have not found evidence of intentional wrongdoing by anyone in the IRS or involvement in these matters by anyone outside the IRS," he told reporters.


Quoted from the same article.

re: IRS chief: Inappropriate screening was broad


The new commie IRS head is trying to imply that when he arrived the IRS agents were still using the “ buzz words ” tea party , patriot etc etc BUT were also using the word
“ PROGRESSIVE ” and other liberal buzz words

Hey ole dumb new IRS geek ....
These liberal IRS agents and the crooks in the W.H. have known the I.G. was investigating this for almost 2 years !!!!!! LMAO

You think the adding of these words and continued use were to give an “ APPEARANCE ” of incompetence without the malice of targeting ?

The better more specific answers would be when were liberal buzz words added and how many liberal groups vs. conservative groups were targeted.

All this other poppycock is just rhetorical bull shyt.

Reeks of revisionism to me.

Why wouldn't Lerner testify, if this were the case?

Neither the IRS document obtained by the AP or the 15 IRS lists of terms addressed how many progressive groups received close scrutiny or how the agency treated their requests. Dozens of conservative groups saw their applications experience lengthy delays, and they received unusually intrusive questions about their donors and other details that agency officials have conceded were inappropriate.
Well, this is what it all comes down to, isn't it? Were the "progressive" groups approved, held up, or fast tracked?

Just being screened wasn't the scandal, as much as the dishonest left wants to pretend that's all it was.

Excellent question.

But it doesn't really matter, does it? If the IRS were targeting progressives, too, then the left should rally to our side in demanding that government be downsized.

Exactly, but since the left wants a big bloated government, they're damned if they do and damned if they don't.

None of it does. The left doesn't care as long as they weren't targeted.

None of the politicians care about this country. Just which side wins.

The only possible solution left is straight 1 term limits for all of Congress.

It should never have been a partisan issue. The Republicans had a golden opportunity here, and the only way they could frick it up was making it a partisan witch hunt. Guess what they did

Honestly, it's the one scandal anyone gave a frick about.

Does Issa have any more witnesses to call up? What happened to the momentum?

It's the 1 scandal that everyone should have given a frick about. But it started looking like the Republicans were using this as an opportunity to get on their soapbox, and people stopped listening.

Have barely heard anything in the news about it lately.

I don't think this is true. I think the NSA drowned everything else out.

It's not going to stay that way. The IRS business isn't just going to disappear. This happens over the course of any major event; there are ebbs and flows in the public's attention.

I think the NSA thing looks just as bad in Obama as any of the other scandals.

But here's the thing, I don't think it'll ever be proven that Obama had anything to do with the IRS targeting (he may have, but will it ever be proven). The IRS scandal should have been focused on the IRS, not Obama or the Democrats.
