Thanks for the link to that piece.
this, the DOJ vendettas against individuals in
AZ, the back-door funding of the likes of ACORN - Obama is worse than what liberals accused Nixon of doing.
the state has no bearing on whether you are an S Corp. you file this request for S Corp status with the IRS after you create the corporation with the sec of state... the state is NOT involved
Maybe they just asked Hillary for her “files”
Add yet another impeachable offense log to the simmering fire.
And one they wouldn't like to become public knowledge
