Skip to comments.GOP: IRS targeted conservatives more than liberals

Conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status were more closely scrutinized by the Internal Revenue Service than their progressive counterparts, according to a report Tuesday by House Republican investigators.
Tea party and other conservative groups were, on average, asked three times as many questions as progressive groups, said the report by Republicans on the House Ways and Means Committee. Conservative groups were less likely to be approved for tax-exempt status and more likely to have their applications delayed, the report said.
The IRS has been under siege since May when agency officials acknowledged that agents working in a Cincinnati office had improperly targeted tea party groups for extra scrutiny when they applied for tax-exempt status. The IRS has since released documents suggesting that progressive groups may have been targeted, too.

Someone pointed out that 4 progressive groups were ‘targeted’ but that ALL of them had conservative sounding name.... So in fact the IRS was ONLY targeting conservative groups.
and leftists are always trying to make fake groups that sound conservative for a variety of reasons.
It was part of the communist game plan in the 50’s and early 60’s...
