Investigate Darrell Issa

Darrell Issa’s contrived IRS “scandal” was a manufactured “crisis” from the beginning — nothing more than a smoke-and-mirrors gimmick to vilify Obama and rally the GOP base.

From the beginning, it was clear that the IRS was targeting ANY non-profit organization whose application for tax-exempt status included political buzzwords from the left OR right.  Darrell Issa cherry-picked the cases where a group using “Patriot” or “Tea Party” was questioned about why their political activity should be subsidized by taxpayers.  He cleverly omitted the fact that liberal non-profit groups asked the same questions by the IRS if they used references to “green” and other liberal buzzwords.

Elijah Cummings, the senior Democrat on the House Government Reform and Oversight Committee, recently publicized this fact — that the IRS was auditing non-profit groups of all political persuasions, not just conservative groups.  Darrell Issa had a public tantrum when his smoke and mirrors “scandal” came unraveled in front of God and everybody.

What else did you expect from a car thief, arsonist and insurance fraudster?

As slippery as Darrell Issa’s fake IRS “scandal” was, it’s been a successful fundraising gimmick.  During the second quarter of this year, he raised $737,109.  Most of these contributions were inspired by Issa’s scary IRS imagery.

If you think the House Ethics Committee should investigate Darrell Issa’s conduct, please sign this petition.

The purpose of the House Government Reform and Oversight Committee is NOT to conjure up phony scandals so politicians can extort larger campaign contributions from gullible constituents.

Darrell Issa needs to be censured — at the very least — for his sleazy behavior.

Issa is like that piece of food you get stuck in your teeth and can't get out. Just won't go away.

Of course the IRS examines anything out of the ordinary and that goes for regular filings too. Does he think we're stupid? Don't answer that.

Issa is very experienced at sleazy behavior. He is a disgrace to California.

Demeur: Issa knows how dumb and gullible his teabagger constituents are.

Jerry: I can't believe Californians keep re-electing that asshole, even in a conservative area like San Diego.

San Diego has elected more than its share of crazy wingnuts.

The only problem I see with Investigating Issa is that the investigation would only last about 30 seconds as there really isn't anything to find but hot air.

Where he is in SOCAL, they just keep on electing morons to office. It's like a weird part of the state. He will keep doing this till something sticks.

Jerry: When I was in the Navy (early '70s), San Diego had this almost-sinister rightwing Orwellian Big Brother vibe. I haven't been back there since then, but it sounds like things haven't changed much.

Mr. C.: LOL. They'd find enough hot air to replace all the helium we're currently using.

Jess: It doesn't sound like the San Diego area has changed much since I was last there in the early '70s.
