Skip to comments.O’KEEFE STRIKES AGAIN: Undercover Video Exposes IRS Officials Targeting Conservative Groups
Posted on 09/25/2018 10:58:19 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
On Tuesday, Project Veritas rolled out its 4th undercover video of its Deep State Unmasked series.
The latest undercover video exposes two IRS officials bragging about targeting conservative groups and saying, I dont give a shit that is a crime.
The two officials in the report are Thomas Sheehy, an IRS tax examiner and member of the Austin Democratic Socialists of America in Texas, and Jerry Semasek, an IRS attorney in Washington, DC.
Via Project Veritas:
Sheehy boasts about and appears to justify former disgraced IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, who was mired in scandal for losing tens of thousands of emails regarding the Lois Lerner controversy. The Lois Lerner controversy occurred in 2013 and involved revelations showing that the IRS unfairly scrutinized conservative groups.
SHEEHY: John Koskinen. He got a lot of flak for giving increased scrutiny to these Tea Party groups. Conservatives got really mad at him, he was so cool though because he deleted all the emails, so they could not hold any evidence against him.
SHEEHY: Yeah, I dont give a s**t if that is a crime for doing that because you should give increased scrutiny to those groups because a lot of them are just f***ing fronts for the Koch brothers or whatever.
Attorney Semasek, who worked for the IRS during the 2013 scandal, continued:
SEMASEK: The law requires that an organization cant be political, it cant be partisan to be tax exempt Those employees in Cincinnati Ohio started to separate them and put them in a pile. And it turns out that they were like the Tea Party group of people. And I think they did, like Lois Lerner,

Since Lois Lerner was never punished you KNEW this was still going on.
The government bureaucracy is out of control.
And that’s the problem. Leftists continue to get away with criminal activity and nothing is ever done. No one is ever punished. Whether it’s Lois Lerner, the IRS commissioner, Hillary, those who harass people like Ted Cruz, Sarah Huchabee. The Left always gets away with this stuff and they no reason to be concerned with anything.
10,000 “lost”’ emails.
Fire them and prosecute them for abuse of power.

Some Obama-era “officials” at work.
RE: Since Lois Lerner was never punished you KNEW this was still going on.
I never understand what this Contempt of Congress really means.
Both Lois Lerner and Eric Holder were held in contempt but what did they get? ZILCH.
Try being held in contempt of court and see what happens...
>The government bureaucracy is out of control.
Remove ‘bureaucracy’ and you’ll be 100%\dead-on
Great work by OKEEFE. The scary thing is that he is not even scratching the surface. There are thousands of these people out there.
Being held in contempt by a Republican majority congress is probably a badge of honor for a Dem.
It’s almost not fair, a dork and probably a beautiful woman, smiling at him, asking questions, hanging on his every word....
2012 election, stolen.
RE: Great work by OKEEFE. The scary thing is that he is not even scratching the surface.
This won’t make the nightly news. Also overshadowed by the Kavanaugh circus.
O’Keefe’s research is showing that improper action by leftists in federal employment is very probable. The answer is to have weaker and smaller government.
Trying to alter people’s shortcomings, sins and personal behavior will not work. If government is smaller, weaker and less able to impact us, then personal actions of government employees will have less impact.
The evidence against these guys seems much more circumstantial then in the last video. The incrimination is not as great since those being recorded seem a bit guarded.
It means you only get a 2 second hug at dinner parties instead of the normal 4.
The Paralegal that was fired Sunday that was outted last week is now banging a tin cup on Twitter to donate to her
Light er up boys and girls. Let her know how you really feel.
Contemptible Congress is more like it.
