PJ Media Washington Editor Bridget Johnson published an exclusive interview this weekend with Dwight Chapin, the former deputy assistant to President Richard Nixon and the first member of the White House team to resign as the Watergate scandal unfolded. Chapin had this to say about the IRS scandal:
It’s fascinating some of the similarities, you know; the talk about Nixon having an era of criminality or whatever it might be in the Nixon White House, and at the same time now we’re wondering about this aura of prejudice against the Tea Party people and so forth — and whether or not that rhetoric from the very top of our leadership led to the possible actions by the way of IRS agents. And it’s a very similar situation.
Chapin believes the IRS scandal is the most serious one facing Obama. Do you agree? Tell us what you think — and why — in the comment section below.
