Documents reveal lies on IRS scandal
American Thinker ^ | 05/15/2014 | Thomas Lifson

Judicial Watch has released more documents indicating that the American public has been lied to about the IRS scandal. The entire “rogue agents in Cincinnati” story was an outright fabrication, and the targeting was specifically of groups critical of the administration in the lead -up to an election.

One key email string from July 2012 confirms that IRS Tea Party scrutiny was directed from Washington, DC. On July 6, 2010, Holly Paz (the former Director of the IRS Rulings and Agreements Division and current Manager of Exempt Organizations Guidance) asks IRS lawyer Steven Grodnitzky “to let Cindy and Sharon know how we have been handling Tea Party applications in the last few months.”  Cindy Thomas is the former director of the IRS Exempt Organizations office in Cincinnati and Sharon Camarillo was a Senior Manager in their Los Angeles office. Grodnitzky, a top lawyer in the Exempt Organization Technical unit (EOT) in Washington, DC, responds:

EOT is working the Tea party applications in coordination with Cincy. We are developing a few applications here in DC and providing copies of our development letters with the agent to use as examples in the development of their cases. Chip Hull [another lawyer in IRS headquarters] is working these cases in EOT and working with the agent in Cincy, so any communication should include him as well. Because the Tea party applications are the subject of an SCR [Sensitive Case Report], we cannot resolve any of the cases without coordinating with Rob.

The reference to Rob is believed to be Rob Choi, then-Director of Rulings and Agreements in IRS’s Washington, DC, headquarters.

Not only this - but unlike the New York Times - Judicial Watch pays women equal pay for equal work...

I swear if this happened under Bush it would be wall to wall news and there would be mobs looking for his head. As it is, its a “phoney scandal” and is not worthy of reporting.

” 2. Issues include government spending, government debt and taxes. 3. Educate the public through advocacy/legislative activities to make America a better place to live. 4. Statements in the case file that are critical of the how the country is being run. . . “

THIS is bad enough...No matter what the group called themselves... Americans CERTAINLY have the right to such assemblies and activity!!

“I swear if this happened under Bush it would be wall to wall news and there would be mobs looking for his head. As it is, its a “phoney scandal” and is not worthy of reporting.”

And the full story from A-Z would be covered and recovered, and cliche’s such as “out of control,” “above the law,””criminal indictment,”and “imperial presidency,” would be repeated like toothpaste commercials around the clock. Details wouldn’t matter, and Democrat motives are never questioned during their elephant hunting circuses.

Democrat scandals are very different from Republican scandals.

This corrupt thuggish RAT Administration and all their Satan worshipers have made that clear for all to see (if they care to look).



Here are my favorites when it comes to RAT hypocrisy.

Political suppression by the IRS? Cincinnati. Ambassador killed? Internet video. ID? Internet picture. On and on and nothing is done about anything. Oh but there is time for the head of the Republican party to ridicule his fellow party members for not implementing “Obama’s” agenda.

The old Blue Oyster Cult song, “Career of Evil” popped into my head with your post, although more appropriate here might be the phrase “Parade of Evil.”

Watch Krauthammer and others on video here.

What is Johnny going to do about this? Zip, zero, nada. If the GOP expects to prevail in Nov 2014 they had better step up the pressure on selecting a NEW SPEAKER, ONE PREFERABLY WITH A MAN-SIZED SET OF GONADS.

A janitor and a groundskeeper in Cincy probably lost their jobs when they were made scapegoats.
