Among the criteria used by IRS officials to flag applications was a "Be On the Look Out" list, or a BOLO, which was discontinued in 2012, according to the report. The criteria on the BOLO included:

-- Whether "Tea Party," "Patriots" or "9/12 Project" was referenced in the case file.

-- Whether the issues outlined in the application included government spending, government debt or taxes.

-- Whether there was advocating or lobbying to "make America a better place to live."

-- Whether a statement in the case file criticized how the country is being run.

-- Whether it advocated education about the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

Well it looks like democrats didn't want people doing things like that. Heck, those people might just think for themselves one day. Who would vote for them then?

Ridiculous.

If liberal groups were targeted by conservatives in the IRS there would be burning GOP effigies being thrown of the rooftops right now.

Holder is going to investigate this? WTF? He probably ordered it.

I have no more faith. What a joke.

Al Franken was one of those who called for the IRS to investigate the conservative organizations.

ANCHORAGE, Alaska - Records show that Sarah Palin hasn't paid any property taxes on cabins that have been built on two backcountry plots partially owned by the former Alaska governor.

There are no tax assessments for the two-story, house-sized cabins, a workshop and a sauna spotted Thursday in an aerial survey. Property taxes totaling $156.13 were paid on the land in 2009 but that bill did not include anything for the structures because the local assessor didn't know about the new construction nearly 100 miles north of Anchorage.

The issue has attracted the attention of local tax officials who conducted the scheduled aerial survey of properties in the area on Thursday. The area is accessible only by floatplane, snowmobile or four-wheeler.

Dave Dunivan, the assessor for the Matanuska-Susitna Borough, said such a survey had not been done there in five years, before construction started on the cabins.

Palin's attorney, Thomas Van Flein, said it is not the responsibility of property owners to report structures that go up on their land.

"It is the borough's job," he said in an e-mail. "The property taxes on this parcel are fully paid and have never been delinquent."

Dunivan, however, said owners are required by state law to report any omissions or errors in their tax assessments.

It's too soon to estimate how much the structures will increase the taxes due, Dunivan said.

The cabins are the size of large homes rather than the average backcountry cabin, but square footage estimates were not immediately available.

Local real estate broker, Claus Steigler, said most cabins in the area are closer to the 500-square-foot range. Because they are in a hard to reach area, they generally sell for only $40,000 to $60,000, including the land.

One large log cabin reachable by road is listed at $229,000, but it's still on the market after two years, Steigler said.

{ As Sweet Sarah the moose skinner gets ready to give her $100,000 dollar keynote speech to the rich conservative nutzoids who make up the Teabaggers party it seems she has been caught cheating on her taxes. Attendees have paid $549 a ticket (plus hotel and transportation) to gather for three days at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel and Convention Center, which critics say is financially out of reach for many activists but what do they care about the so called "grassroots" when they can party over lobster and steak with sweet Sarah herself?

Still logging in with different user names to judge posts? Pathetic and desperate. Kind of like something a liberal IRS agent would do.

It is hard to have a failure in leadership when there is no leadership to begin with.

Ok, List of issues:
1. Gas prices continue to skyrocket
2. Unemployment still well above the 5% level
3. 47 million Americans still on food Stamps
4. Lied to the American People about Benghazi
5. IRS illegally leaked information to Obama supporters
6. Dept of Justice illegal gathering of phone information from the AP

Sad, very Sad!! To put yourself above the Law then blame everyone else when you get caught.

Audit the IRS! Ways and Means oversees them, and guess who chaired the committee from 2007 to 2010? None other than uber corrupt democrat Chuck Rangel.

Surprise.

Changing the subject doesn't work for you, and it isn't going to work for the Obama administration on the IRS and AP issues either.

Unions quality is always better? You are a moron if you believe that. Let's compare GM, Ford, and Chrysler to Toyota, Honda, and Nissan in the 1980's and 1990's.

Your lack of intelligent arguments is dwarfed only by your ability and desire to show you have none.
