Skip to comments.IRS agent: Tax agency is still targeting Tea Party groups
Posted on 08/08/2013 2:39:40 PM PDT by Perdogg
In a remarkable admission that is likely to rock the Internal Revenue Service again, testimony released Thursday by House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp reveals that an agent involved in reviewing tax exempt applications from conservative groups told a committee investigator that the agency is still targeting Tea Party groups, three months after the IRS scandal erupted..

Why would the IRS stop?
The House of Representatives has done nothing.
It's not like anyone was, or is going to be hold accountable.
On the contrary, I bet they put the pedal to the metal with regards to abuse of IRS power.
Well, Congress has shown NO TEETH in yanking the chains of those involved. Issa should have had Lois Lerner back in front of the committee the next day and told her that she waived her 5th Amendment privilege by testifying about her innocence.
She can answer questions or stand in contempt of Congress.
I have had enough of this garbage. Boehner needs to get his thumb out or resign today.
“IRS: If a political advocacy case came in today, I would give it — or talk about it to my manager because right now we really don’t have any direction or we haven’t had any for the last month and a half.”
Your hard earned tax dollars at work.
If, as it appears, no one will do hard time for these crimes, isn't it prudent to assume the hammer will come down harder on the rat's political enemies in 2014 and harder still in 2016?
Reform cannot possibly come from Wash DC, from the institutions which profit from the mess they created.
Am I surprised??? I don’t THINK so!
IMPEACH the illegal sob and nullify all his minions and their decisions.
Lerner must die for her crimes against the Republic
Impeachment it the equivalent of water off a trolls back
There must be extreme harsh punishment
The kenyan sees weakness in Boehner & McConnell and is twisting the knife. Conservatives are getting more and more disgusted by GOP inaction. The Dems know that and are turning up the heat trying to increase the division in the party.
It is the same reason these goose stepping Dems are pushing amnesty so hard. Divide and conquor the GOP. Everybody with a IQ above 50 knows that this the Dem playbook for 2014. Yet the GOP leadership stooges are taking the bait. Unbelievable
“She can answer questions or stand in contempt of Congress.”
I’m hoping, probably falsely, that Issa is digging dirt on her, so that when he does call her back, she’ll be totally screwed! I hope, I hope.
The Coup has occurred, and the IRS continuing with targeting people for their political beliefs continues unless and until Lois Lerner and her ilk are criminally prosecuted!!
Dial 202-224-3121, ask for Speaker Boner and DEMAND he back Daryl Issa up on the many investigations: F&F, Benghazi, IRS + FEC, DOJ spying on Fox News, NSA targeting Americans, etc..
What happened to follow-up of Hillary's Benghazi testimony? Call her back! What about Lois Lerner? Is she at home, logged into IRS database changing past Emails to read differently?
THE LONGER THE GOP WAITS TO INVESTIGATE AND HOLD HEARINGS, THE LONGER THE EVIL REGIME HAS TO CORROBORATE THEIR LIES AND CHANGE THE DOCUMENTS!!!! THIS HAS ALREADY HAPPENED RE:BENGHAZI, WITH NEW ACTORS FOUND WHO ARE WILLING TO PRETEND THEY WERE THERE IN BENGHAZI AND WILL LIE ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED!!!
Well, Congress has shown NO TEETH in yanking the chains of those involved. Issa should have had Lois Lerner back in front of the committee the next day and told her that she waived her 5th Amendment privilege by testifying about her innocence
Boehner needs to deal directly with the WH. Put some demands on the kenyan to fix the OBAMA IRS. It is not the job of Congress to play whack a mole with the executive branch.
Boener delegated this to Camp and Issa because he doesn’t want to take any action. He thinks he can tip toe to Nov. 2014 and use this as a campaign issue. That will back fire big time as the GOP base is demoralized by the lack of action regarding the trampling of our constitutional rights.
That’s a little extreme. I’d settle for loss of job and pension and a couple years at Club Fed.
It is not extreme
She committed terrible crimes against the Republic
Wishy washy wimpy rationalization has lost us the Republic
Harsh punishment will not deter any Hitler, least of all, “ours.” Unless it is meted out BY AMERICANS, FOR AMERICA, we are puppets.
Let us start at the TOP and impeach, and work our way down. It will take all of America, and the COMMON goal to preserve our Republic with its rights before anything can be accomplished.
And here is where the 2nd Amendment comes in...
” Boehner needs to deal directly with the WH.”
He does. They take him out golfing, and fill him full of booze.
“Why would they stop? It’s not like anyone was, or is going to be hold accountable. On the contrary, I bet they put the pedal to the metal with regards to abuse of IRS power.”
That’s right; if they were punished twice as hard it is still no punishment (2 x 0 = 0). If Repubs ever get back in power they’ll never show the capacity for total war demonstrated by the Dems...
I have no problem with your solution; it is how Europeans handled tyranny for centuries.
LOL! They’ve got something on Boehner. Possible photos of him with someone he shouldn’t be with at the tanning salon. Perhaps he and Roberts? LOL Whatever the case, Boehner has OBVIOUSLY been blackmailed into protecting 0bama 100%.
Why would they stop???
They have absolute power over life and death in America
and have NO COMPULSION against lying to Congress.
Of course it is still being used to advance the leftist agenda and stifle the opposition, why would anyone think it would stop?
Lerner should get 20 years in prison......same sentence as Obama, who ordered the IRS to attack us.
So, how many FReepers will be sending in HEAVILY REDACTED tax forms FY 2013?
Beware of stupid people in large groups.
Why would the IRS stop?
The news media have everyone even on here focused on Trayvon and other crap.
if the news media doesn’t make it big news then it isn’t happening.
Obamas IRS, FEC and other gov agencies shut down the tea party movement .
Obama ordered the IR$ and other gov agencies to rig the election for Obama and democrats in the Congress.
This is a coup.
We have to demand recall of this Obama and the rest of the communists/democrats who stole the election of 2012. Impeach this communist Kenyan Obama now
why arent the conservative media Rush, Levin, Savage , here,Palin, Hannity, Fox ,Coulter, drudge etc shouting this from the rooftops? :
Obama ordered the IR$ and other gov agencies to rig the election for Obama and democrats in the Congress. Obama must be impeached.
This is a coup.
Everyone is quick to blame the GOP for everything but what are we doing, are we protesting like in Egypt? no . where is the “conservative” media? nowhere either.
Can't be said ENOUGH!
The first three tiers of the government should be dismissed, impeached, sued and/or imprisoned. And it should be retroactive for anyone, media, government and anyone in between, to have to answer for the despicable conduct that this government has been guilty of for the last almost eight years.
If it were up to me, I would take no prisoners...
” The first three tiers of the government should be dismissed, impeached, sued and/or imprisoned”
I agree, and I know you aren’t joking!
Even the Grim Reaper would find the task of cleaning up the political class arduous and very time consuming.
"IN YOUR FACE! Whatcha gonna do 'bout it, Crackuh!"
WHY do we have a Congress...? I don’t get it.
Apparently they have NO power and do not mind if they’re not taken seriously.
IN FACT, this simply makes clear that WE ALL now do not take them seriously.
NOT voting for a non-Tea Party candidate.
Because they have no fear of opposition.
why arent the conservative media Rush, Levin, Savage , here,Palin, Hannity, Fox ,Coulter, drudge etc shouting this from the rooftops?
Because they like being invited to the best parties, like the elitists they are.
Yes, this is a bloodless coup.
Please, as if they were ever likely to stop. You can bet they’ve increased and expanded their snooping.
When does the push back start? When do we surround IRS and buildings and drag these criminals out of their cushy offices and beat the living sh!t out of them?
When will ANYBODY be held accountable? WHEN?
When WE do something about it. That’s when.
This is what happens when you have endless “investigations” and requests for emails and other BS and nobody is arrested for almost a freaking year. What happened to Boehner bloviating and blathering he wanted to know who was going to jail?!?! They’re all freaking WORTHLESS. AND CRIMINAL.
Yea, it rocked them so much the first time that they didn't even bother to stop their illegal activities.
And the old Crackuh John Boehner and his henchmen are aiding and abetting the subversion of the US government. Oh the irony.
Forgot the sarc tag.
This is the kind of government arrogance and wide spread govenrment corruption millions are talking about.
They have no reason to stop. Government at all levels has become a controlling, ruling class oligarchy/dictatorship.
Too bad everyone at once can’t go on a tax strike for a quarter, see how much fun they have when they find they aren’t getting any bonuses. Hey come on, as we have seen with illegals if everybody does it it’s OK. Why the government will even give us amnesty!
We don't. Just like every other portion of the constitution, it's been trampled. There no longer is a separation of powers.
And we sit and chat about it....yet again. These SOB’s.
I disagree. Gross abuse of power weakens the country. It should be met with the harshest penalties.
