A prominent Catholic professors says the IRS targeted her.

On Wednesday, Dr. Anne Hendershott, a devout Catholic and a noted sociologist, professor and author, exclusively told TheBlaze that she believes she may have been one of the IRS’s targets.

According to Hendershott, the IRS audited her in 2010 and demanded to know who was paying her and “what their politics were.”

It all started with a phone call she received at her home in May of that year — a call during which Hendershott was told she would be audited. A letter that followed on May 19, 2010 solidified the IRS’s request to meet her in person two months later in July. While IRS investigations are certainly not uncommon occurrences, the professor believes that the situation surrounding hers was more-than-curious.

“The IRS calls my house and says … ‘I just wanted to let you know that we’re going to be auditing your business’ and I said ‘My businesses?’ and he said, ‘You know the expenses you take off for writing,” the academic recalls.

She doesn’t operate a business.

Our own J. Christian Adams, one of the Obama/Holder Department of Justice’s most effective critics, says we can add him to the list of targets.

After Obama was elected, I faced my first IRS audit shakedown after decades of filing income tax returns. Overdue coincidence?  Perhaps.

Given the headlines of the past 48 hours, perhaps not.

My audit experience was a headache, as anyone who has experienced one can attest.  When it happened, a former IRS lawyer with whom I associated in private practice told me – “it’s no accident you were audited.”

I brushed it off.  But I wonder how many left-wing election lawyers and leftist bloggers were audited.  Any Media Matters drones face an audit in the last four years? Step right up and announce yourself if you did.

After wasting his time and money, the IRS ended up owing Adams $100.

I Shocked, Shocked! This is good Tea party get to play victims. How many people sensing IRS targeting Tea party in the past year decide not to vote or change their mind for voting for Mitt Romney out of fear the IRS knocking on their door?
If Clinton had thought up getting everyone to point the fingers at IRS he may have not been impeached or perhaps if he finger IRS early he could have got Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nicholas to not blow up Oklahoma city with evil exposed before the straw that break the camels back. Who Know!
Also get Fox news to rehire sweet tea party Goddess Angel Sarah Palin one of the human faces of the 7th angel I visit weekly and double her pay after she suffer this humiliation by Fox news with their veiled move to the left.

I was audited once, maybe ten years ago or more. They wanted to see my returns for something like seven years past. I dug them out, sent them in to them and wound up about $400.00 richer.That was with them quitting after only about four of them. They said the others were past their time limit on paying out. They haven't bothered me since.

There is a report that the IRS is id'ing 2"Rogues" who were doing this in Cinncinati. Lot's of luck with that. We know the DC office was involved as well. The lower level employees are going to sing like birds on this, and eventually we'll find out who was higher up the food chain. We know this info was being leaked to campaign operatives for Alinsky purposes.
This is the most important scandal of the several that are revealing themselves now. This onion needs to be professionally unpeeled. There ain't no way, a couple of "rogues" were just operating on thier own. Someone in Obumble's campaign very high up had to be involved.

This IRS scandal goes right down to individual veterans, supporting NRA and second amendment issues. IRS's sudden interest in performing "audits" and raising "red flags" over past filings and even seemingly approved tax returns is at issue, too....especially with individual veterans.
One veteran had a 1999 tax return "reviewed" and found to have a reporting "error" totalling $942.00 for 1998. This in 2012. why? one asks, did this seemingly "out-of-left-field" audit and charges occur almost five years later??? Especially after the 2008 presidential elections! Is this a mere coincidence or is there something more sinister to this. This veteran is almost homeless, his wife a heart surgery survivor...monthly income of $1,400.00. We all chipped in to help this Honorably Discharged hero. Shame, shame on Obamanator and his Bolshevik philosophy...Wake-up america! There's a communist in the White House! Pray. Amen.

it just may be that obozo will regret willing his second term, as he is being faced with scandals, opposition to his health care bill which doesn't do what he promised, an economy that never got close to unemployment numbers he promised, no significant cut in deficit and spending increases that will exceen $7,000,000,000,000

But then history will probably get to judge this UNPATRIOTIC, IRRESPONSIBLE, chicago style thug FAILURE for what he is and how
he failed so magnificently while speaking platitudes but having no ability for the job.

Reminds me of the company that had to hired a minority and HR told the company he hires the best person, and they over ruled him and he hired a minority, that in short order needed to be let go.

When called into the office the minority starts ranting that he is being fired because he is a minority, and the HR person looks at him and says NOPE, you were hired because you were a minority, you are being fired because you are an UNPATRIOTIC, IRRESPONSIBLE FAILURE.

There is a method to Obama's morbid madness, or corruption. It's all integrated. It was a given he would use the IRS as a jackboot but the fact he could do it and not really care about the consequences goes hand in hand with the rest of his plan -- when over half the country doesn't pay taxes and doesn't really know about or care anymore who the IRS is, and when the media is forced to report on abuses against tea party conservatives (whom they despise and believe represent a worst domestic threat than jihadists), what's to fear? How hard was all this to predict?
