Let’s see. Six progressive groups were flagged for extra scrutiny by the IRS, while out of 292 tea party groups that applied for special tax-exempt status ALL 292 groups were flagged.

Naw….nothing to see here. Move along.

Inspector General Russell George:

“Our audit did not find evidence that the IRS used the ‘progressives’ identifier as selection criteria for potential political cases between May 2010 and May 2012,” George wrote in the letter obtained by The Hill.

The inspector general also stressed that 100 percent of the groups with “Tea Party,” “patriots” and “9/12” in their name were flagged for extra attention.

“While we have multiple sources of information corroborating the use of Tea Party and other related criteria we described in our report, including employee interviews, e-mails and other documents, we found no indication in any of these other materials that ‘progressives’ was a term used to refer cases for scrutiny for political campaign intervention,” George wrote to Levin, the top Democrat on the tax-writing House Ways and Means Committee…

George’s letter says that the “progressive” identifier on BOLO lists was not in a section used for selecting potential political cases, and that the IRS had developed inappropriate criteria to flag Tea Party applicants as potentially political.

So why was the new IRS director, Danny Werfel, out and about trying to spread misinformation?

Why, because that’s what the Obama administration does best.

Just like the lie that all these groups were flagged because they saw a huge increase of applications. Sounds great until you find out the flagging began BEFORE the surge.

Lie lie and lie some more. That’s all this administration knows how to do.

    HI,
    IT’S THAT GOOD IS IN IT
    WELL as for me, I am not expert so I don’t go far in the CYBER SPACE,
    SO THE OTHER ARE OKAY FOR MY DEMAND FOR MY NEEDS,
    THANK YOU FOR THE ADVICE AND THE TIPS, I still keep it in mind,
    I’m glad I found a technician who has the knowledge and can come home on call.
    he did a good work expertise, and I need to have my old laptop drive transfer in my next laptop coming,
    things which I have no idea how to do.
    it’s worth the money I will pay.
    but me trying to fix my computer at the start of the problems, gave me a lot of learning on it.

    I don’t know much about computers. I do email, Internet searches, word processing, and few other things with it. Computers are like cars: You should buy the one YOU want. Be sure and check with your computer guy to make sure that if your PC comes with Windows 8 in it, that all of the bugs have been worked out. There have been problems with it. Also, ask him if your 3rd party programs will run on Windows 8, and if they don’t, will it will cost to update them.
