Long before the Internal Revenue Service revealed it had improperly targeted conservative 501(c)(4) groups, a group of Democratic senators led by New York Sen. Chuck Schumer urged the IRS to do just that.
Last year, Schumer, along with Democratic Sens. Michael Bennet, Sheldon Whitehouse, Jeff Merkley, Tom Udall, Jeanne Shaheen and Al Franken, penned a letter calling on the agency to cap the amount of the political spending by groups masquerading as social welfare organizations.

Drag them into the streets to be dealt with accordingly.
Scratch a leftist, find a Little Dictator.
The effing bullies.... thugs. The IRS also went after traditional Jews and evangelical Christians. And conservative Hispanic groups...
How dare they. How dare they...
Dems are thugs.
I heard 50%. If true, that is too high, especially when minorities don't yet make up 50% of the population.
Sen. Levin asked for specific groups to be targeted. And they were.
I’m betting 90% dems,too.
really, Dems, you are showing your Marxist colors!! I can't wait til 2016 when most blacks will stay home because Zero can't run (of course, he might).
Hence my belief that we are truly doomed. The new Americans, these Millenial bastards (literal and figurative), have grown up embracing the "thug life." They think it's glamorous. Rappers get shot up, sling drugs, beat women: it's cool. Rockers have indiscriminate sex with groupies, drink until they pass out, live a fast lifestyle: it's cool.
Talk about the Constitution? Grand military victories won through sheer will and determination? Hard work with appreciable results? That's for chumps! Who needs it?
The kids in our society are deliberately putting the thugs into office, and they couldn't care less. There is no hardship for them. They are the enlightened ones. They are the academics. They live with their parents and work menial jobs, if any at all. They are marijuana philosophers and anarchists. Government isn't for them. They are this generation's hippies.
Dems hire young people to 'protest' because that's part of their 'image' lie. FreeRepublic has run some of their Craig's list ads for Occupy - and other bullsh*t make-believe stuff they put out....
The kids aren't putting democrats in office - voter fraud is putting democrats in office - and corrupt black politicians.
Liberal elites WISH kids backed them - they pay them to make it look that way... but like all kids, politics is a distant thing once you get past the draft and 1968 - the year democrats believe is still happening.
OLD white thugs with money run the democrat party. And it's old white thugs who put Obama in office. Everyone knows that.
