I'm sure that a thread started by CajunAngele yesterday on this very same topic... and which blew up in her face... couldn't have escaped your notice. So why are you repeating the same nonsense?
Your linked article is bullshite, which is to be expected of the American Spectator and Fox.
The Inspector General's Report says that the question of what to do with Tea Party applications arose by email in FEBRUARY 2010 page 13 of 59
and that on or around MARCH 1, 2010
the Determinations Unit began searching for other requests for tax exemption involving the Tea Party, Patriots, 9/12, and other political sounding names, e.g., “We the People” or “Take Back the Country.” pages 29,30 of 59
Those things occurred BEFORE your visit mentioned in the American Spectator. Why did they leave them out? Easy: the American Spectator is a dishonest hack mag and those things didn't fit the dramatic "smoking gun" very-next-day narrative it wants suckers like you to swallow.
Also, by the way, labeling Colleen Kelley the "Treasury Union Chief" is in and of itself a bit dishonest... the NTEU represents 31 separate Federal government agencies, the Treasury being one... the name is a holdover from an earlier time. The immigration service, for example, has 20,000 members in the NTEU... Why do you suppose the American Spectator didn't tell you that, either?
And, by the way, I didn't need anybody to tell me these things... I merely perused the Inspector General's report... something YOU could have done before making a public fool of yourself.
