Turns out Republicans are behind the IRS stf

12 posts in this topic

And it turns out that it was Republicans who asked the IRS to look at the tax-exempt status of Tea Party groups.

Seven Republican members of Congress filed complaints with the IRS in 2010, claiming Tea Party groups engaged in partisan electioneering, leading to an IRS probe, according to agency documents released under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) launched an examination of the Tea Party on Oct. 8, 2010, claiming a speech by a Tea Party leader made during the organization's annual convention that criticized President Barack Obama's education and foreign policies crossed the line from issue advocacy to partisan electioneering. [...]

The documents include letters sent from members of Congress on behalf of their constituents, including Sens. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) and Susan Collins (R-ME), Rep. Jo Ann Davis (R-VA), the late Senator Strom Thurmond (R-SC), and former Reps. Larry Combest (R-TX), Joe Scarborough (R-FL) and Robert Ehrlich (R-MD).

Well duh the two main parties are in it together. Why do you think the Republican party keep picking people like Romney and Bush. Because they act the same as Obma.

The tea party speaks to much common sense for the powers that be.

Libertarians 2016. Just saying :clap:

So, it was the Republicans that caused the IRS employees (one of whom is an Obama donor, btw,) to commit crimes, then.

That certainly absolves the IRS felons, I suppose.

I did hear once, from a GOP source, when the tea party was going strong, that some of the tea party was funded by the Russian mafia. Stood to reason that the IRS would take that seriously.

Those low level IRS employees were hired prior to 2008, therefore, it's Bush's fault.

So basically the Rebpulicans said "we're not sure if all the money is kosher, better do the legal thing and report them to the IRS" and are getting flagilated for it?

I may actually have to start agreeing that the press is rabidly left wing.
