Rep. Paul Ryan Pins Down Acting IRS Commissioner to Admitting No “Progressive” Groups were Targeted
http://unaffiliatedparty.org/2013/05/17/rep-p...
I realize that you are an idiot that relies on faulty sources, but try reality for a change.

Acting IRS commissioner Danny Werfel told Congress Thursday that progressive groups seeking tax-exempt status were inappropriately flagged by IRS officials, in addition to tea party and conservative groups.

At the same time, a letter from a Treasury Department watchdog to Congress suggests that while progressives were flagged, tea party groups were subject to a much higher level of scrutiny.

Testifying before the House Ways and Means Committee, Werfel acknowledged that the word "progressive" did appear on a "be on the lookout" (BOLO) list that IRS officials used to target groups for further scrutiny.

http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-250_162-57591358/...

The inspector general of the Internal Revenue Service says the agency scrutinized a handful of applications for tax-exempt status from self-described "progressive" groups between mid-2010 and mid-2012, a period when tea-party groups were being targeted for review.

Well Obama's doing the Africa thing only to find the Chinese have already tied up deals with every country he visits. Yet this is the light-speed you guys expect with any change. Play catch up with everyone else, NOT because the US hasn't the ability to lead its because conservative USA won't let it happen. It's the same with every single social change that adapts to modern living and a changing crowded planet. The difference is if a country like China decides overnight not to buy coal anymore there will be no arguments, no if's or but's it will just happen. Yet your lot want to deny the US to be a world leader in alternative energy tech because your addicted to fossil fuels so won't hear anything bad about it. Bagging the alternative energy industry on the basis they can't profit against cheap subsidised fossil fuels. The enemy is not Al Queda anymore it's you guys who would rather sit back and watch your your planet turn into a barren desert or one big super storm where there is no way out.

In other words, aside from blatant political activity, Tea Turd groups engage in zero social welfare.

A ridiculous claim, but the fact that progressive groups were also flagged weakens the Teabaggers argument a lot.
Democrats seem determined to shift the focus to this week's disclosure that "Progressive" was also on a list of terms used by IRS screeners from 2010 to 2012 to look for applicants with potential problems that would merit close scrutiny. In a letter obtained Thursday by The Associated Press, George acknowledged that "Progressives" appeared on the list. But he said there was no evidence the IRS set aside progressive groups' applications because they appeared on that list.

No more inappropriate than flagging 100% of groups with progressive in their name.

OK I googled it

BS
Her use of “educational” may go back to the fact that political activities cannot become the primary function of a 501(c)4 organization. The challenge for reviewers is interpreting what is meant by the term “primary.” The TIGTA audit notes “Treasury Regulations state that I.R.C.§ 501(c)(4) organizations should have social welfare as their ‘primary activity’; however, the regulations do not define how to measure whether social welfare is an organization’s ‘primary activity.

Quit defedning the scumbags
"The Internal Revenue Service on Friday apologized for targeting groups with “tea party” or “patriot” in their names, confirming long-standing accusations by some conservatives that their applications for tax-exempt status were being improperly delayed and scrutinized."
The scrutiny was well deserved. The Teabaggers are political groups trying to get a tax exemption pretending to otherwise.

Figures you'd get it wrong.

The IRS did their job.
