Chief IRS Counsel Got Jeremiah Wright's Church out of IRS Probe

before joining the IRS; offered to do the work pro bono.

quote:

News reports from the time indicate the now-chief counsel of the IRS, William Wilkins, helped a church connected to President Barack Obama’s friend Rev. Jeremiah Wright get out of an IRS probe in 2008 while working as a private attorney.

“Lawyers from Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr have won the dismissal of an IRS case against United Church of Christ, Sen. Barack Obama's denomination,” The American Lawyer’s Zach Lowe wrote on May 22, 2008. William Wilkins, then a WilmerHale law firm partner, said, “We were so interested in the case we offered to do it pro bono."

Yes, though one still has to wonder why the person who helped this church evade the probe is now in such a lofty position.

Relevance?

First hurdle to clear for his run for the POTUS?

This is my point. And they even offered to do the work pro bono.

It's the kind of thing that on its own might not seem like much, but in light of the recent revelations about the IRS targeting conservative groups it makes you take a longer look at it.

Church????

Do you really consider Rev. Jeremiah "If Being an Ignorant Racist is Wrong, I Don't Wannabe" Wright as being the head of a "church"?

That's where this whole mess really stinks. What person in his right f*cking mind would argue that this f*cking clown should have 501(c)(3) status to puke out his racist and political filth???

Of all the recent scandals, this one may piss me off the most. It really is pathetic.

On a side note, I see and hear of people, churches, and organizations always beating the government/IRS out of a lot of money. I even saw commercials on tv of people saying 'I owed the gov. over $300,000 dollars, but Johnson & Stone got that reduced to $25,000! I feel great'.

Disgusting
