Obama’s IRS targetted groups with Tea Party and Patriot in their names

dont-tread-on-me-gadsden-flagObama’s IRS targeting conservative groups in 2012, especially those with Tea Party or Patriot in their names for extra auditing and reviews. Conservative groups were targeted and scrutinized excessively by Obama’s IRS to see if they were in violation of their tax-exempt status.

“The IRS would like to apologize for that,” said Lois Lerner, the chief IRS official in charge of tax-exempt organizations
“That was wrong,” said Lerner. “That was absolutely incorrect, it was insensitive and it was inappropriate. That’s not how we go about selecting cases for further review.”
The IRS harassment of conservative groups was not politically motivated, claims the IRS. Furthermore, Lerner says the practice of targeting conservatives was done without the knowledge of top IRS officials and was the work of lower-level staff in Cincinatti.
The revelation stands in stark contrast to past proclamations from IRS officials. “There’s absolutely no targeting,” said IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman last year.
