I've not seen anything to indicate that any liberal groups were similarly "subjected to heightened scrutiny and inordinate delays, and demanding some Plaintiffs’ information that TITA determined was unnecessary to the agency’s determination of their tax-exempt status"


have you?.....that would be the important difference which the IRS admitted to and apologized for and settled over as a result ...and that you are conveniently ignoring though it has been pointed out repeatedly

From the 122 page treasury inspector general report.

"While most of the potentially political applications that the IRS set aside for heightened scrutiny were Tea Party and conservative groups, the IRS also flagged some left-leaning tax-exempt applicants for processing. In order to centralize these cases for review and processing, names and descriptions of several left-leaning groups were placed on the BOLO spreadsheet. Some left-leaning applicants experienced lengthy processing delays and inappropriate and burdensome requests for information."

But Spence says "wrong". I mean, when someone says "wrong", that is a very compelling, convincing, one-word argument...With so much supporting his opinion, it's hard to argue with it...What does the DOJ know, anyway?
