Sadly, I think not. Not unless this is punished on a regular basis.
There are too many petty bureaucrats everywhere who use their power to harass others and make themselves feel important and powerful. It’s not just for political reasons, either. Sometimes it’s for bribe money. Sometimes it’s a favor to friends. Sometimes it’s just because they get off on hurting others or jerking them around.
Ever try to get a building permit in most places? If you’re not part of the “in crowd” - professionals and contractors known to the bureaucrats - they make the process very painful and nearly impossible.
Still, I’d like to see plenty of jail time for everyone connected with this. It would be a good start.
Surely, these groups that were being denied their status contacted IRS offices or congressman to find out what was taking so long.

Major hub not small office
This was a blatant attempt to interfere with the Tea Party’s ability to organize before the election. The election results need to be vacated and a special election held ASAP. I can always dream.
There goes your "Rogue Employees" story, 0bambi!
Congress cannot issue indictments.
Hopefully you know that.
Congress holds hearings. They investigate. If they believe laws were violated, they can only refer the matters to prosecutors in the criminal justice system. Those prosecutors can either pursue, or not pursue the case.
Let me suggest that people at lower levels in the IRS need to be encouraged to rat out their superiors who in turn need to be encouraged to rat out anyone in or outside the agency all the way up to the WH. Or people who took their marching orders from Democrat leftist thug pols such as Senators. I heard on Mark Levin that Carl Levin of MI had sicked the IRS on organizations he did not like.
This is systemic and is the tip of the iceberg.
Couldn’t get the links to work or paragraphs. hmmmm.
At least he got this statement right.
Just what I was thinking. Where did this come from? The IRS just suddenly admits this? Say what? This is a deflection.
So the cover-up has already been exposed.
Who directed the cover-up?
Yes, I knew that - an important note - and should have put that in my steps. DOJ would be the ones to prosecute and secure the indictment thru grandjury.
So we are to believe that all of these conservative group applications were handled by a couple of people. Somehow these just ended up on their desks. Sorry, not buying it!
and that’s the thing are republicans going to act with a spine or like cowards to maintain their own power and not mix things up which is what I think they do so much of the time.
Refund to them their indiviual contributions (they can use it in partial payment of their attorney bills) but absolutely NO PENSION FOR THEM. Federal employees would rather have their spouse and children killed before they lost their pensions. OK, that’s a little exageration—but not much.
And believe me, this corruption extends far beyond 4 employees. A REAL INVESTIGATION (i.e., hard drives seized, complete phone records obtained, complete copies of all emails obtained [actual digital copies with all metadata intact] relevant data from various IRS servers obtained.
Orders need to go out before to seize relevant hard drives and servers before the “I’m sorry, we 'sanitized' those hard-drives per our current security practices” excuses have an opportunity to unfold.
Let’s have a well-funded and staffed Special Prosecutor start the digging without further footdragging by Obama administration staffers.
I don’t know.
But in my travels today I heard Limbaugh play a segment or Q/A and he didn’t really answer the question. I can’t find it right now though.
Something about he was asked a question about the IRS, and answered it about something else.
