Scandal: One IRS commissioner visited Obama's White House 118 times in 2010 and 2011. His successor also dropped in often. But under George W. Bush, the tax chief visited once in four years. Time for an audit.
IRS Schedule O
As the Washington Examiner noted last weekend, ex-commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service Douglas Shulman went to the White House some 118 times in 2010 and 2011, while Steven Miller, the acting director who took over from Shulman last November, himself made numerous trips there, White House visitor logs show.
Business as usual for one of the most powerful arms of the federal government, you might think. Not so.
Mark Everson, who ran the IRS during most of the George W. Bush administration, from 2003 to 2007, apparently visited a single time, grousing that he felt like he had "moved to Siberia" because the tax collection agency was so out of the policy loop.
The alibi the White House has wedded itself to is that it had to work closely with the IRS to implement ObamaCare. But House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., says "it's hard to believe" the IRS' abusive targeting of Tea Party and other conservative groups did not enter into the conversations that took place at these meetings, at least "in passing."

Oh, yeah. 118 visits and he can’t remember why. What would Torquemada do?
I’d like to know how many times he visited when Obama wasn’t there, and whom did he meet with ?
I’ll bet you anything IRS Chief, Doug Schulman, met with Obama’s right hand man, Valerie Jarrettand also David Axelrod.
I wouldn’t bet against him meeting with Mr. Jarrett, that’s almost a sure thing:)
V a l e r i e J a r r e t t
Maybe he was auditing Obama. Repeatedly.
Perhaps these visits were trysts.
Maybe they have Comfy Chairs in the White House
The IRS Commish visits the White Hut that many times and no one in the “news” media wants to know why, especially after conservative groups get targeted by the IRS? Is it that easy of a guess (it is for us conservatives!)?
Shulman was visiting the General counsul of Obama Robert Bauer. Bauer is a PIT BULL attack dog. Just google his name and you will see the connection. I hope the GOP is smart enough to see this too.
Yep! your correct. I hope that the GOP can tie this goon back to Shulman who visited the White House 122 times but couldnt remember anything.
Read more about Bauer below.
Outgoing White House Counsel (December 2009 to June 2011)
Why He Matters
Bauer is one of the nations pre-eminent experts on election and campaign finance law, and his views are enormously influential with Democrats.
Married to Anita Dunn.
Bauer is returning to New York University Law School this spring to teach a seminar on political reform.
The course will encompass campaign finance, lobbying laws, voting rights and moretopics Mr. Bauer has had ample exposure to during his 30 years of practice as a lawyer, which include stints working for political campaigns and the Democratic National Committee.
It gets better.
Read the end of this paragraph.
During his time on the campaign trail, Mr. Bauer led challenges to new voter laws backed by Republicansincluding suing the state of Ohio in Julyand lobbied the Federal Election Commission to allow individuals to text in donations (as did his Romney counterpart). Mr. Bauer also sought to compel the well-funded Republican advocacy group Crossroads GPS to disclose the names of its donors, citing millions of dollars the group has spent on campaign ads attacking Democrats.
This is the guy who pulled the chains with the IRS on behalf of the White House.
You cant make this stuff up. On May 21, 2013 Obama appointed Bob Bauer to A FEC Presidential Commission on Election Administration.
LOOKING TO STEAL MORE VOTES IN THE FUTURE.
Commission to identify practical, real-world solutions to long voter lines, access to polls.
WASHINGTON, May 21, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ The Presidential Commission on Election Administration was officially launched today, following President Barack Obama s State of the Union pledge to identify non-partisan ways to shorten lines at polling places, promote the efficient conduct of elections, and provide better access to the polls for all voters.
The 10-member Commission will submit a final report to the President within six months of its first public meeting, which is expected to be held in Washington in June. Headed by Co-Chairs Bob Bauer and Ben Ginsberg , the Commissioners are experts in election administration, policy and procedures, or leaders from customer service-oriented businesses and industry.
The Presidents expectation is clear, said Co-Chair Bob Bauer , who served President Obama as White House counsel from December 2009 until 2011, and as General Counsel to the Presidents re-election committee and to the Democratic National Committee. The Commission is charged with developing recommendations based on the best information available for administrative practices that afford voters the opportunity to cast ballots without undue delay and improve their overall experience.
The Commission was created by Executive Order 13644, Establishment of the Presidential Commission on Election Administration. Commissioners were appointed by the President.:
Robert F. Bauer , Co-Chair and Member Partner, Perkins Coie LLP
Another Obama Executive order.
Lock him in a room and make him listen to Hillary Clinton speeches. He’ll break.
They broke the Law, even if it was for Islam and al Qaeda.
Thanks for you posts.
First of all, how did they know that Obamascare was going to be considered a tax?
Wasn’t that decided by the traitor John Roberts? 3 years later?
How many times did he visit BEFORE it was decided?
This stinks to high hell!
Hey.... He went to the White Hut for milk and cookies....
Moochelle makes a mean chocolate chip cookie...
What else could it be....?
I hope that it comes out. I think that Jay Sekulow is very smart and seems to be heading in that direction. Tonight on Hannity he made some comments about tying it back to the WH.
Or did they also meet at the Starbucks at 1730 Penn Ave, NW.
