- The targeting of conservative groups, groups that question government power is inexcusable. The notion that IRS agents were simply taking a shortcut, or trying to be efficient in grouping applications, is absurd. Read of the outrageous, callous targeting here.
- Beyond the targeting, however, is the over-the-top, intrusive questioning that could not possibly serve any purposes other than to abuse, harass, and possibly illegally learn the workings of the Tea Party groups, and for future targeting of groups and individuals. It was more than "impolite" "horrible customer service," and "insensitive," it was illegal, unconstitutional, and conspiratorial. Read here the questions asked and understand the evil depths to which IRS agents sunk. Please read the Liberty Township Tea Party letter here to understand just how over-the-top, intrusive and improper the IRS actions were, once a Tea Party group was targeted.
- Third, the lie spun by the IRS that this all evolved from the actions of two rogue agents in the Cincinnati office is purely and simply a lie. And the intentional misrepresentations about the IRS policy, practice and procedure to target and then harass Tea Partiers is evidence of the nefarious nature of the harassment plan.
- Finally, the fact that they simply would not stop, even after corrected, the fact that the administration covered up the scandal for a year after the investigation was completed, the declaration of the 5th, and the continuous prevarication, is an indication that this administration has no intention to come clean with the public and cleanse itself of the filth with which they have cloaked themselves.
