Skip to comments.IRS Takes Vengeance on Virginia for Enforcing the Law
Posted on 06/06/2013 7:50:42 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli joked at the Virginia Republican Convention, where he was nominated by the state GOP for governor, that the Obama administration must not think he's a conservative: He hasn't been audited by the IRS.
The IRS nevertheless found a way to exact vengeance on the slayer of government-lawbreaking, who has sued several federal government agencies -- and even wrote a book about why the Obama administration is America's biggest lawbreaker.
Yesterday Cuccinelli blasted the IRS for withholding payment of $125 million in money owed to Virginia.
Cuccinelli won the second largest Medicaid fraud settlement is U.S. history, and the IRS has refused to cough up the money it owed to Virginia after sitting on it for eight months, where it has been earning interest for the feds, but not for Virginia.
As Cuccinelli wrote in a statement, "Can you imagine what the IRS would do if you or I turned in our tax paperwork eight-months late?"
Lawbreaking, cheating and incompetence is in the nature of government. Cuccinelli's book, The Last Line of Defense: The New Fight for American Liberty, does more than explain why he sued the Environmental Protection Agency and other federal agencies for lawbreaking, and why he was the first state AG to file suit to block ObamaCare.
In Last Line of Defense, Cuccinelli gives a tutorial about why the Constitution and its Bill of Rights were structured to best protect freedoms. As "the law that governs government," the Constitution cannot adequately protect freedom when government violates that supreme law.
As we've seen with the IRS, the EPA and other federal agencies, government ignores and thus violates the Constitution. But government lawbreaking is an even deeper problem. Government agencies violate the very laws that they are supposed to implement and enforce.

This is typical of the IRS, and of government in general - when they owe you, regardless of court order, they simply delay delay delay, or ignore the fact that they owe the money.
But can Virginians understand this? I wonder.
This corruption stretches to infinity....
Not the 47% parasites
Now, I like that...
But will Washington retaliate by withholding Federal money from them later?
Who is going to arrest and jail the corrupt, lawbreaking government scumbags - - a corrupt, lawbreaking government scumbag like Holder?
Years ago, I hadn’t filed a FED return because they owed ME money, and I wanted to leave it until later to claim (This is not against the law).
Then, years later I got a notice from the STATE that I hadn’t filed a FED return for that certain year (not the same year as the State claim I was making), and until I did, my STATE refund was on hold.
So... I filed the FED return. When I got no check in the mail I called, and they told me THEY WERE KEEPING IT because I took TOO LONG.
They can go back seven years and make you pay, but YOU can only go back FIVE years and expect any ‘refund’. This is one of those ‘rules’ that they don’t make public. It probably isn’t even a ‘real’ rule, they just decided to keep it.
What a great SYSTEM.(/s)
The Richmond Times - Dispatch reports today (Thu 6 June) via its Facebook feed:
UPDATE: It looks like Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli’s complaints about the IRS worked — the federal government is sending Virginia more than $100 million in connection with the Abbott Pharmaceuticals fraud settlement.
Earlier today Cuccinelli accused the IRS of dragging its feet on releasing the money.

By the way.... those of you on Facebook might take a moment and “like” or otherwise befriend Ken Cuccinelli on Facebook, and also running mates E.W. Jackson (candidate for Lt. Gov.) and Mark D. Obenshain (atty. gen.).
As you might imagine, Cuccinelli has many haters in the world of social media, as does the conservative Christian candidate for Lt. Governor, E.W. Jackson.
That's why politicians are always trying to ignore it or misunderstand it.
We must revitalize it.
Possibly, but one result of such a move would be that individuals on the Federal teat would leave Virginia for easier pickings elsewhere—Not a bad trade-off.
Another outcome would be that the traffic in Northern Virginia would improve significantly.
We must revitalize it."
I just heard that the Treasury issued its payt to VA within 1.5 hours of Cuccinelli’s presser. Somehow, tho, Sen. Kaine (not Cuccinelli) was advised that ‘the check is in the mail’ two weeks ago. That amazing Treasury Dept!!
Thanks for the update! The cabal continues.
