I want to know who actually wrote the questions that the non-profits were required to answer.
this has been my contention from the beginning. As much as I detest the BOLO target list, I think they will be able to weasel word themselves out of trouble with that since there are other BOLO target lists and have been for years.
It is the development of the questions which will bring the most bang for the buck. Who wrote them. Who signed off on using them. Why would the IRS agents knowingly use them when this goes so far against the grain that it cannot be talked out of.
I would fire every IRS agent who sent them regardless of their protestations. Tough crap on them. They knew it was wrong and so they must go. No federal worker is required to complete an illegal act.
Unlike the battle cry for Nixon (follow the money) this time I kept saying FOLLOW THE QUESTIONS.
I recall seeing a post that stated she was the one to write the questions. I may be wrong.
EXACTLY. The IRS front line paper pushers did not have the resources to have done the research necessary to formulate a majority of the specific targeted questions that involved individual associations and other such seemingly IRS irrelevant issues. There was and are both a political and research component to this scandal.
