So the IRS is a union environment?

Intimidation could have come (and probably did) from BOTH the management AND the UNION.

That’s a nasty squeeze play.

Tepac and the 2012 Senate campaign:

the Union’s TEPAC gave $157,000 to Senate candidates. $1,000 went to Republicans. All of it (0.6%) to Olympia Snowe (and even there, they gave 5X as much to Angus King, who defeated her). They gave heaviest to candidates from red or purple states (NV, ND, WV...)

Brunner probing anti-slots group - Subpoenas seek to identify backers of referendum
Columbus Dispatch, The (OH) - Thursday, February 18, 2010
Author: Mark Niquette ; THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH
Questions have been swirling for months now about who is funding a group seeking a referendum on whether electronic slot machines should be added at Ohio horse-racing tracks.

Yesterday, Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner (D) said she has launched an investigation to find out.

(snip)

LetOhioVote.org was formed by three conservatives last year after Gov. Ted Strickland and the legislature included a provision in the state budget to add slot machines at the state’s seven horse-racing tracks as a way to raise revenue.

Senate Republicans Again Block DISCLOSE Act, Designed to Reveal Special Interest Spending
By Michael Beckel on September 23, 2010

“We do not want to chill speech,” Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.), the bill’s lead sponsor in the Senate, said on the floor before the vote.

Michelle Malkin: Public enemy No. 1: GOP donors
Columbus Ledger-Enquirer (GA) - Tuesday, October 19, 2010
The White House attack on the U.S. Chamber of Commerce isn’t about “disclosure.” It’s about disarmament. While posing as campaign finance champions, the ultimate goal of the Democratic offensive is to intimidate conservative donors, chill political free speech and drain Republican coffers.

Chamber of Commerce official Bruce Josten tried to educate the public. “(W)e know what the purpose here is,” he told ABC News. “It’s to harass and intimidate.” Josten cited protests and threats against chamber members as retribution for ads the organization ran opposing the federal health care takeover.

(snip)

In August 2008, a former Washington director of MoveOn.org - the smear merchant group that branded Gen. David Petraeus a traitor for overseeing the successful troop surge in Iraq - announced a brazen witch hunt against Republican donors. Left-wing political operative Tom Matzzie told The New York Times he would send “warning” letters to 10,000 top GOP givers “hoping to create a chilling effect that will dry up contributions.” Matzzie bragged of “going for the jugular” and said the warning letter would be just the first step, “alerting donors who might be considering giving to right-wing groups to a variety of potential dangers, including legal trouble, public exposure and watchdog groups digging through their lives.”

WATERBOARD OBAMA!

It’s beginning to become very clear that thuggery and abuse of power may have tipped the balance in favor of Obama winning in 2012. Obama & his henchmen DEFRAUDED THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.

The Candy Crowley interruption of Romney with an incorrect “correction” of Romney’s statement on Benghazi no doubt helped cause Romney to lose hundreds of thousands of votes. But Romney’s Benghazi allegation about The Tyrant In Chief was correct!

The Administration (and then the media) deprived Americans of the truth.

Romney would seem to have a good legal case to make that Obama’s election SHOULD BE invalidated. He should sue the bastard and all of his cronies. Well, maybe he values his life...

But SOMEONE should sue to have proper election and with the information that we know now and were deprived of before via fraud.

I haven’t been able to keep up with all this, and i don’t want this to get lost in the shuffle so i’m posting it here.

On that “IRS Scandal Timeline Spreadsheet” thread from yesterday, it was mentioned that all the timelines have the first line redacted. Here’s the Washington Examiner article about it that Sir Napsalot linked:
http://washingtonexaminer.com/what-sparked-irs-abuses-treasury-report-redacts-first-item-in-all-timelines/article/2529736

If anything turns up here or elsewhere about an email that had a “2/25/2010” date on it, it may be significant. Apparently it’s when the IRS Tea Party persecutions began.

Could be. The problem was figuring out what kind of back channel would connect the White House to the IRS activities, since it’s not very likely that they went through Shulman, a Bush appointee. This explains how they could have done it.
