So have women been even more unfairly abused by Obama’s IRS than others? Well, at this point we don’t know. But it has been obvious for years that liberals reserve special venom for women who happen to be conservatives. The left pushes a narrative that it “stands for women” — that was the Texas Democrat Party’s exact line during the recent battle to pass a modest abortion law — but the reality is that while it does stand for some women it by no means stands for all women. Juanita Broaderick found out how little sympathy women who stand up against powerful Democrats will get.

When women disrupt that narrative, as state Sen. Donna Campbell, state Rep. Jodie Laubenberg, state Rep. Stephanie Klick, state Rep. Stefani Carter and other women did by championing the abortion bill through the Texas legislature, leftists either denounce them or pretend that they do not exist. Either tactic is demeaning and dismissive of women who happen to disagree with the left’s lines on issues. Carter, who is black, is running for statewide office now on the Republican ticket. As a black woman running as a conservative and pro-life Republican, Carter can expect to become the left’s next target of unreasoned hate. Battleground Texas is probably already building an arsenal of hate to unleash on her.

Sarah Palin has endured years of misogynistic abuse from the left for being a working mom who was a successful governor who happens to be a pro-life conservative. During my own years at Hot Air and on the Laura Ingraham Show I saw liberal abuse of notable conservative women up close. The abuse liberals heap on conservative women every single day is quite real and it reaches insane levels. It remains to be seen whether the IRS reserved any special scrutiny for women who stand for themselves as anything other than Democrat.

O'Donnell was a joke although private information should never be leaked. Regardless of her lousy reputation, she should file a law suit.

This is a different level. Not that it isn't an egregious violation of law to target political opponents by stonewalling their applications for non-profit status, but targeting actual candidates is quite direct and smacks of despotism.

Know who used to attempt to browbeat Republicans in FEC investigations, offering to drop the complaints if they promised not to run for office? Lois Lerner.

But it's probably just a coincidence, right?

I refuse to lay all the blame on the democrats in this case O'Donnel was despised and hated by Washington Republicans as well. In fact Carl Rove made it mission to make sure she was not elected. Could it be beltway scum came together to defeat her?

Bureaucrats have a vested interest in expanded government and abuses will not end until revealing private data by government employees, whether done inadvertently or purposefully, is made a felony with jail time.

And for those who object to including inadvertent release of data just remember that the same standard applies to many laws Congress has passed. Lack of criminal intent, mens rea, is not a defense to many environmental laws.

Indeed, there is no connection or alliance between leftist oriented government and the media, our "free" press. And Mary had a little lamb.
And liittle leftist loons, some of whom visit here, see no problem with this. But then they're still going on with George Bush.

Most haven't a clue as to the criminal gang running Washington. They are NO different than other criminals, aside from their political muscle.
Moreover, they have broken so many laws that it is impossible to keep track. It will surely come back to haunt them -http://adinakutnicki.com/2013/07/15/america-no-longer-a-tyranny-in-the-making-that-ship-has-sailed-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki/

A regime can only run wild for so long, before the tyranny becomes too high to bear.

How did someone know she was going to run (someone at least believed she was going to run and accessed her records because of that). Did she have an exploratory committee?
If someone accessed her records before she announced how many other candidates had their records as well? I find it extremely hard to believe one candidate out of hundreds nationwide (including state races, etc.) had what should be private records accessed by her political opponents.
This is another reason we need the FairTax.
