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.
