If the biased targeting of conservative groups was done by only a couple of employees working in the Cinncinati office-like obamas administration has claimed- I would think you could review thousands of emails done by hundreds of employees and find nothing since the vast majority was left out of it-as they say.

So you don't think they reviewed the emails of the people at that Cincinnati office?

More laughable BS. So Lois Lerner took the fifth for no reason at all? Right.
How desperate are the Dems to cover their corruption of the IRS?

If not political, what was the motivation to target TEA party groups?

It's gratifying to know that the IRS treats everyone with equal shabbiness.

easy...the tea party says they have no social agenda, so any group with a tea party name should have to show that the vast majority of their work is social, as that would be against the tea party name...

this is just common sense...

So, you admit it WAS political. Did the moveon groups garner the same scrutiny? How about acorn?

The investigations into teabagger groups should continue. They are posing as non profit 'social welfare' groups which they are not! All of these fraudulent groups should be targeted both liberal and conservatard!
