GOP report: IRS singled out Tea Party

The IRS singled out conservative Tea Party groups for scrutiny, according to a new report released Monday by Rep. Darrell Issa and Republicans on the House Oversight Committee.

The report argues Democrats are pushing a “myth” when they say the IRS closely examined groups of all political stripes.

While organizations on both sides of the aisle were probed, the report from Issa (R-Calif.) claims that Tea Party groups received tougher scrutiny when they applied for tax-exempt status.

The report is the latest foray in the long-running feud in Washington over the IRS’s handling of groups with possible political ties that applied for tax-exempt status.

Issa’s panel has spent nearly a year examining the matter. But so far, no direct evidence has emerged to prove early claims the scrutiny was directed by political players high in the Obama administration.

    ndnpatriot–You are correct, and this is what happens when Marxism and communism steadily creeps into politics (which it has) and there we have it with Obama, Holder and Clinton. And of course, the general public who support these Marxists, just don’t have a clue because they have been seduced by promises and goodies!. These sleazy, slimy politicians are just following the Alinky agenda.

      The only thing “creeping” into politics these days is MONEY. No, sorry. It’s stampeding.

    God bless Rep. Issa, but this whole thing is a DOG-AND -PONY SHOW! I hope people realize nothing will be done on this issue, as the elite-republicans, e.g. john boehner, John McCain…… are just granstanding, as everyone knows this matter must go before the DOJ (Eric Holder) to be considered for criminal charges. How far do you think this is going to go?? I really believe our REPUBLIC IS LOST! THE PEOPLE have been too apathetic and complacent too long. They can’t ( or don’t) recognize the marxist/socialist tactics which have been utilized have been very effective. They are too busy thinking about what benefits them, as opposed to what benefits the country as a whole. It’s the whole “ME,ME,ME, I,I,I, mentality that has taken hold. GOD HAVE MERCY ON US!!!

      I agree with a lot of your sentiments, but in Issa’s defense, it’s had to get anything done when you get stonewalled but the Democrat Party , as well as being lied to by them. Holder needs to go, plain and simple. He’s a poor excuse for a leader in justice. It is becoming more evident each day that Romney was correct in his assessment during that private conversation, except that now it’s probably over 50%.
