What a joke!

I just visited their 'events' webpage, and did a count:

23 POLITICAL EVENTS
13 NON-POLITICAL, FUNDRAISING, OR ORGANIZATIONAL EVENTS.

This is a political group, and does not deserve a 401c4 exemption.

F*cked up how you on the Left will put up with corruption.

As long as it's a Democrat, corruption is cool.

While you take the stance of it's ok to avoid taxes, as long as you mis-represent your organization.
That doesn't sound fcked up at all.

Sounds similar to Rev Wrights church. Or the reverend Al Sharpton. Perhaps the 'T-Party Church' would work better.

President Obama:

'we're going to PUNISH OUR ENEMIES and we're going to reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us'

President Obama's Press Secretary, Jay Carney blames everything on Fox News

http://www.fireandreamitchell.com/2013/05/14/...

IRS - goes after Tea Party, Patriot groups

DOJ - goes after Fox News reporterS

That's President Obama's American and the democrat's America

Be VERY AFRAID!

The Obama Administration is using the IRS to target political opponents.

Wrong is wrong, whatever side of the isle it's on.

Time for this no-good, scumbag, to have his Marxist ass impeached.

It's not a lie.

The IRS admitted they were targeting conservative groups.

You cannot help but to remain clueless and in the dark.

You forgot Kenyan & Muslim.
And the fact that Bush did the same thing.
Which was fine with your type then.

The Bush IRS Audited Greenpeace and the NAACP. Not only was the NAACP suspiciously audited during Bush's 2004 re-election campaign, but high-profile Republicans like Joe Scarborough had previously supported an audit of the organization even though he's suddenly shocked by the current IRS audit story. Also in 2004, the Wall Street Journal reported that the IRS audited the hyper-liberal group Greenpeace at the request of Public Interest Watch, a group that's funded by Exxon-Mobil.

The Bush IRS Collected Political Affiliation Data on Taxpayers. In 2006, a contractor hired by the IRS collected party affiliation via a search of voter registration roles in a laundry list of states: Alaska, Arkansas, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Texas, Utah and Wisconsin. This begs the obvious question: why? Why would the IRS need voter registration and party affiliation information?

We're talking about Obama, Obama Obama

If Bush was doing all of theses things, why wasn't the media and every Democrat whining about it?
After 2006, when the the Dems took over both houses of Congress, why didn't they impeach him?

Obama is rotten to the core. He will not serve out his 2nd term.

If it was wrong then, it's still wrong now.

Agreed, wrong then and now.
The IRS is consistently evil, regardless of the admin. in charge.
The only difference is you didn't have Faux & Rush telling you to be going apeshit about it then.

No, No similarity.

But tea-party is already a superstition; just a short $$$ leap to be a religion.
