Somebody has to tell you this. It might as well be me. You are much too gullible for your own good.<quoted text>
So what was going on with the IRS Carol? I'll tell you. The staff in the Cincinnati office were doing their jobs the best they could considering the flood of 401C applications and the limited resources they had. The IRS is required to determine whether organizations applying for special tax status are "social welfare" groups or are instead engaged in political activity. Political groups cannot get the special tax status these groups were applying for.
Only one-third of the groups that were passed to specialists for a closer look were "conservative." Lots of other organizations were also checked, including progressive organizations.
No conservative organizations were denied their tax exempt status.
Just another phony "scandal" cooked up by the right wing and swallowed whole by gullible fools like you.
I think the Obama administration was wrong to fire or suspend anybody in this case.
If this was just a rightwing phony scandal, democrats wouldn't be condemning it as loudly and, in some cases, even more loudly than conservatives.
Neither would 60% of Americans say the GOP is handling the scandals appropriately.
More hearings are scheduled next week and the weeks following with bigger fish having to testify under oath. More whistleblowers are also expected to emerge in the ensuing weeks.
This is just the beginning.
