NO one was charged with outing Plame. The only charge was lying to a FBI agent.
You cannot rewrite what the charges were.

where do you get this info on why they did it? just making crap up that you will have to run from later...again.....?
The charge by the IGA was they were permitting Liberal groups engaging in the same activities the status BUT was deliberately targeting groups they thought was conservative to slow walk through the process.

You cannot claim the IRS had the high ground in this.

I have a news flash for you Pal. There are some good ones on both sides of the fence. However by and large they ALL are in it for themselves. Being an elected official is an easy ride, you do little or no real work, your staff does all the heavy lifting, you have tremendous power and influence.
The Tea Party is quite refreshing because they are providing pushback against the entire system. We need for example term limits for these clowns in Congress and we need to scale down these HUGE Government agencies.
refreshing?

"A year after a scorching audit revealed that the Internal Revenue Service targeted tea party groups for intrusive scrutiny, and despite an effort to clean house at the agency, many of those groups are still awaiting approval for tax-exempt status.

Meanwhile, documents released Wednesday — a year to the day after the inspector general’s audit — signal intensive involvement of IRS employees in Washington, contradicting the early story by agency employees that the problems stemmed from overzealous employees in the Cincinnati office.

The center says it has 11 client organizations awaiting decisions on their applications, at least one of them stretching back five years. Another 24 of the groups it represents were approved after delays, five withdrew their applications out of frustration with the process, and one was denied after refusing to answer probing IRS questions.

"The generation which commences a revolution rarely complete it. Habituated from their infancy to passive submission of body and mind to their kings and priests, they are not qualified when called on to think and provide for themselves; and their inexperience, their ignorance and bigotry make them instruments often in the hands of the Bonapartes and Iturbides to defeat their own rights and purposes." --Thomas Jefferson to John Adams, 1823.

so who's running the Tea Party show? the Bonapartes and Iturbides.

Guarantee Of 10 Million 'Operation American Spring' Protesters Off By Just Under 10 Million

Operation American Spring took place today as Tea Party-inspired organizers gathered for a “gigantic, massive rally” of up to “30 million people” who claimed they will not leave Washington D.C. until President Obama resigns from office or is forced out in a coup.

The event followed in the footsteps of other right-wing demonstrations that likewise aimed to flood the capital with millions of supporters and disrupt commerce until Obama was ousted, only this time rally organizers guaranteed that a “verified” minimum of 10 million people would show up.

Attendees took turns speaking to the crowd, including one man from New Hampshire who said it was a “disgrace” that “only “four or five hundred people showed up”(by our count, just over one hundred people were present).

"Fox Facts" On The IRS Aren't Facts At All

Fox's "Fox Facts" on the Internal Revenue Service's (IRS) scrutiny of Tea Party groups applying for tax-exempt status get the facts exactly wrong.

Judicial Watch released a batch of IRS email correspondence under a Freedom Of Information Act request on May 14. The emails include a chain of correspondence between the Cincinnati IRS office and the Washington, D.C. based office dating back to February 2010, when a Cincinnati IRS employee first flagged a Tea Party group seeking tax-exempt status for further review. The full email chain shows that the Washington, D.C. office's involvement was all in response to the initial inquiry from Cincinnati.

Yet right-wing media latched onto a midsection of the email chain, from July 2010, to push the conspiracy theory that Washington directed inappropriate targeting of conservative groups.

The falsehood made its way onto the May 16 edition of Fox News'America's Newsroom in an on-screen graphic presented as "Fox Facts." The on-screen "Fox Facts" falsely claimed that the emails newly revealed by Judicial Watch prove that the targeting of conservative groups stemmed from Washington, D.C. rather than Cincinnati:

When it comes to manufacturing scandals, Fox isn't one to let facts stand in their way.

Groups Targeted by I.R.S. Tested Rules on Politics

Representatives of these organizations have cried foul in recent weeks about their treatment by the I.R.S., saying they were among dozens of conservative groups unfairly targeted by the agency, harassed with inappropriate questionnaires and put off for months or years as the agency delayed decisions on their applications.

But a close examination of these groups and others reveals an array of election activities that tax experts and former I.R.S. officials said would provide a legitimate basis for flagging them for closer review.

“Money is not the only thing that matters,” said Donald B. Tobin, a former lawyer with the Justice Department’s tax division who is a law professor at Ohio State University.“While some of the I.R.S. questions may have been overbroad, you can look at some of these groups and understand why these questions were being asked.”

"The government may be paying incorrect subsidies to more than 1 million Americans for their health plans in the new federal insurance marketplace and has been unable so far to fix the errors, according to internal documents and three people familiar with the situation.



The problem means that potentially hundreds of thousands of people are receiving bigger subsidies than they deserve. They are part of a large group of Americans who listed incomes on their insurance applications that differ significantly — either too low or too high — from those on file with the Internal Revenue Service, documents show."

Now to the real problem here. Someone forgot to write the program that would identify these issues and correct them. So the FEDs are currently stuck with these discrepancies.

Flack put up all the Jefferson quotes earlier in the week__we laughed then too.

Grab a clue man, while a genius,Jefferson lived in a very different era. How different? Well the estimated US population in 1780 was only 1.4 million and over a third of that number were slaves. Jefferson had no earthly what the future would bring.

Ben Franklin thought the US Constitution would be scrapped within fifty years.
