INVESTORS BUSINESS DAILY: Emails Show Lois Lerner Targeting Tea Party.
Like the Internet video the Benghazi terrorist attack was blamed on, the only thing phony about the IRS scandal is the administration’s cover story that a couple of rogue agents in the Cincinnati office concocted and executed this most blatant abuse of power by the most powerful and feared agency of government. Lerner’s email further blows out of the water that discredited fiction.
It also confirms a suspected reason for the planned intimidation and hamstringing of conservative opposition to the Obama administration’s policies, saying that those tea party group applications for tax-exempt status could end up being the “vehicle to go to court” to get more clarity on the 2010 Supreme Court ruling on campaign finance rules.
This would explain the bizarre and repeated questionnaires requesting lists of donors, books members read, contents of their prayers, texts of speeches given before the group and whether any member is thinking of running for office. The Obama administration was gathering information for possible future court cases to gut Citizens United while it was keeping its political opponents at bay.
It does look that way.
