When there is no accountability, people become more brazen in their actions. There is absolutely no doubt that employees at the IRS targeted conservative organizations, making them wait far longer than liberal organizations for 501(c)(3) approval and making them answer questions and provide information other organizations did not.
Lois Lerner was never disciplined for her role in the scandal and current IRS chief John Koskinen acts like he’s doing everybody a favor by arrogantly holding on to this job. The House of Representatives is looking to impeach Koskinen and he certainly deserves it.
In what can only be described as a stunning admittance, an IRS employee called C-SPAN and boldly said he would target conservative organizations:
Here is part of what he said:
“I am a lowly clerk at the IRS, looking at your application for tax-free status,” said Bill, the caller from Elizabeth, New Jersey. “I go to your web page to see the goals of your group and one of the goals of your group is to abolish the IRS.”
“You can bet every dollar you got I’m going to go after you and target you and try and end your group and that’s just the way it is,” he continued.
Wow. This is insane. But again, it is not surprising when you know you’re not going to face any consequences.
Share if you are fed up with government bureaucrats believing they are above the law.
