Now that we know the IRS was scrutinizing the entire political spectrum, looking for a level of political activity that would disqualify groups from a 501(c)(4) tax exemption with key words like “progressive” as well as words like “Tea Party,” I was wondering why the original Inspector General report that triggered this whole BS “scandal” mentioned only conservative groups.
It’s because Congressman Darrell Issa (R-CA), the ringmaster of this circus, asked for an audit limited to targeting of conservative groups.
So we’ve come full circle. He’s an even bigger piece of shit than I thought.
