The progressive-leaning investigative journalism group ProPublica says the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) office that targeted and harassed conservative tax-exempt groups during the 2012 election cycle gave the progressive group nine confidential applications of conservative groups whose tax-exempt status was pending.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
After all this time, what difference does it make?
That was a long, long time ago. /sarc
Any thoughts on why they would reveal this? Seems kind of stupid and self defeating.
But...according to the original IRS apologist, “this is not how we do things.” Really?
and can we forget Harry Reid saying he “knows” that Romney didn’t pay taxes???? I hope creepy Harry gets caught in this rip tide.
WOW...and the hits keep on coming...
It is possible Obama was clueless staying above the fray and that Jarrett ordered all of this..
Yeah, I was wondering that myself.
Usually leftists are “all in” on anything that advances their agenda and their power.
Apparently, it IS how they do things.
I5t’s a dog whistle to encourage other Progressive bureaucrats to do the same at greater frequency and volume.
Disclosing tax information to an unauthorized person(s) is a federal crime.
26 USC Sec. 7213. Unauthorized disclosure of information
(a) Returns and return information
(1) Federal employees and other persons
It shall be unlawful for any officer or employee of the United
States or any person described in section 6103(n) (or an officer or
employee of any such person), or any former officer or employee,
willfully to disclose to any person, except as authorized in this
title, any return or return information (as defined in section
6103(b)). Any violation of this paragraph shall be a felony
punishable upon conviction by a fine in any amount not exceeding
$5,000, or imprisonment of not more than 5 years, or both, together
with the costs of prosecution, and if such offense is committed by
any officer or employee of the United States, he shall, in addition
to any other punishment, be dismissed from office or discharged from
employment upon conviction for such offense.
Soros backed group
maybe he is done with obama
why didnt these people come forward right away.
did they use the info..are they culpable????
It does seem kind of self defeating, doesn’t it. Maybe they should be asked why it took them so long to come forward with this revelation and why they are revealing it now. Methinks this isn’t about them wanting to do the right thing, because that could have happened when the incidents happened.
there is a lot of chatter about another bombshell to be dropped before the end of the week.
maybe they are just trying to get ahead of it.
I'll be back with the link...
“why didnt these people come forward right away.”
Because they are afraid their group will be revealed as receiving illegal information. They should be sued out of existence. Soros would have to bankroll their legal defense, costing his something for his sleazy activities in this country. The US should have deported this slime ball long ago.
