Derrick Wilburn, founder of the Rocky Mountain Black Conservatives, filed for 501(c)(3) status in October of 2012. On Wednesday, he finally received a letter from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).
Wilburn did not become politically engaged until he observed that "legislation [was] getting passed against the will of the people." He told the Examiner that he realized that he "needed to 'be the somebody'" and founded the Rocky Mountain Black Conservatives. "Like so many other Americans," he said, "I felt the need to get involved & do more than just vote..."
Before he opened the anticipated letter, Wilburn took a picture of it and wrote a message on Facebook saying in part, "I could be about to have an absolutely fantastic day (from this point forward), or...possibly not so much." It turns out that the letter from the Cincinnati office was a request for more information.
Wilburn, who is also the founder of the website "black and conservative" had to wait for nineteen months to get the request for more information, despite the fact that the IRS website indicates that such requests are sent "within approximately 90 days of the date you received your acknowledgement of receipt."
It is pure speculation as to why Wilburn's application has taken such an unusually long time to process, as the IRS indicates that the "average date of pending applications is August 2013."

Simple explanation: The man has exited the reservation where the government has forced him to remain.
Stalin had his KGB to purge his enemies. 0 has the IRS.
I’m shocked, shocked I tell ya.........
This would be a good day to hold Lerner in contempt. How about it, House GOPers? Ya got the balls to do it today?
Fair is fair. The Democrats have so abused the IRS, that when Republicans are in charge, they should use the IRS to crack down on all the Democrats scams:
1) Jesse Jackson’s blackmailing of corporations.
2) Big labor and all its contrivances.
3) All the billionaire money flowing to radical leftist organizations.
If you stop the crime they use to sustain themselves, they starve to death.
The IRS is still at it
Newt went and talked with Jesse Jackson and the naacp after the contract with America win. That PO the black conservatives. The Republicans should ignore liberal blacks and help conservative blacks out by acknowledging them giving them credibility they deserve.
It is also a more PC example, with a black victim.
