IRS Crackdown on Phony Charity Groups: You Missed a Spot

It's not just a spot; it's more of a giant shitstain on the Body Politic.

Rightwing politicians are still in the throes of their orchestrated outrage over the IRS' chilling crackdown on the tax-exempt non-profit status of Tea Party organizations.  Meanwhile, the Orwellian-named Government Integrity Fund has contributed millions of dollars to Republican candidates.  And YOU helped to finance this group's tax-deductible contributions.  On top of that, because the IRS has recognized the Government Integrity Fund as a non-profit social welfare organization, these sleazebuckets don't have to disclose their donors.

The Disconnect grows wider and wider.  Millions of teabaggers are convinced that the IRS is singling out conservative organizations for extra scrutiny, while a secretly-funded charity group slips under the radar.  The Government Integrity Fund's biggest charity was a multi-million dollar libel campaign against Senator Sherrod Brown in 2012. 

YOUR tax tax dollars at work.

The Tea Party loves to complain that they (and all Repukicans) are being unfairly persecuted, when the opposite is much more the case.

They disgust me so much I can't even feel smug about how desperate they seem. Some things are just too awful.

Come on, Democrats -- show some spine and kick these assholes to the curb.

SM: I couldn't agree more. It seems the more of a bully someone is, the more "persecuted" they claim to be. Christian moralists are oppressed because people aren't forced to obey Christian laws. Teabaggers are persecuted because they can't get non-profit tax-exempt status for their blatant political activism. Etc.

I look at this from a different angle. This is an organization supported by a lot of money.

When has the IRS EVER seriously gone after people with money?

Erik: Good question. I need to be more cynical.

there was alot more than just the targeting . They sent the EPA and Osha into people's personal businesses and looked for things to hit thm up with fines.
Similar to what they did to Gibson Guitar.
I guess you will "get it" when it's you they come for next.

You forgot to mention that Obama was born in Kenya, he's a Muslim and a Communist, and he's going to take all our guns away after he's nationalized every industry.
