Obama’s Fingerprints All Over IRS Tea Party Scandal

 

 

 

 

” It’s past time for the media to begin asking President Obama tough questions about the IRS conservative targeting scandal.  After all he was involved, publicly, from the beginning.

Last Friday, the American Center for Law and Justice (where I serve as Chief Counsel) filed its Second Amended Complaint against the United States, the IRS, and a legion of IRS officials.  This Complaint , in which we represent 41 organizations in 22 states, presents perhaps the most complete story yet of the IRS conservative targeting scandal.

What was sold to the American public as a low-level scandal perpetrated by a few rogue employees – a scandal stopped after senior officials became aware and asserted control – is now (to borrow a Watergate phrase) “no longer operative.”

Instead, we detail a long-running assault on the Tea Party, beginning shortly after its emergence in 2009, that is empowered, encouraged, and orchestrated not only by senior IRS officials in Washington, but also through outright targeting by the White House, Congressional Democrats, and the mainstream media.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lawyers: Targeting Of Conservatives More Vast Than Just Cincinnati, Also Involved DC Office

 

 

” “We’ve dealt with two offices in California, the one in Cincinnati of course , and one in Washington, D.C. So when that story came out on Friday, we knew instantaneously it was false, because we had personal dealings with four different IRS offices from coast to coast and that was in connection with our representing 27 Tea Party groups and conservative groups in 19 states,“ French said, adding that the two California offices were located in Laguna Niguel and El Monte.

“We knew from the beginning that this was not just a low-level Cincinnati employee operation,” French said.

Cleta Mitchell, a lawyer with Foley & Lardner LLP who represents conservative groups, echoed French’s concerns and experience.

“That’s a cover-up,” she told TheDC of the IRS’ claim Friday that the practice was initiated by the Cincinnati unit of the IRS.”

ACLJ DEFENDS FREE SPEECH IN BLOGOSPHERE – REPRESENTING TOP CONSERVATIVE BLOGGERS TARGETED FOR HARASSMENT”

  The harder the progressives try the worse they seem to end up these days . There can be no doubt that Brett Kimberlin was laboring under the serious misapprehension that he could continue indefinitely to play by rules of his choosing . But such is not to be . God bless Al Gore and his internet . 

    For the past 18 months in Wisconsin we have observed the same phenomena unfolding wherein after each repudiation of their spendthrift ways they refuse to except defeat and try an attack from a different angle . Obamacare came about in the same kind of sneaky , underhanded backdoor way and although it represents the one solid victory the Left can claim these days , it  is also the one they surely regret most of all due to its toxicity .

That toxicity is exactly the reason that perhaps we have reached that point referred to by Glenn Reynolds as a ” preference cascade
