    Yep, definitely needs to be investigated to see who were involved at the IRS.
    and that seems to be the spin on the morn. Musta been some nameless, faceless middle of the chain feller. I beet it is the same person who made the "Stand Down" phone call!!! This invisible unknown is ripping apart poor Mr. Obama's presidency. Gosh, if only we had a more transparent government. Then we could see who is behind the Great and Powerfull "O"!!......... or not

    The IRS is probably monitoring message boards like POTUS Place looking for key words like Constitution, smaller government, abolish the IRS, concealed carry, etc. Only a few are safe from them on here ; ).

    According to the spokesperson for the Tea Party Patriots, in an interview, the IRS requested information about the content of posts members made on the Tea Party Patriots Facebook account as part of the investigation.

    Maybe we should all go back to handles instead of our real names when posting, lest we risk being targeted by some government entity.

    Smart move on the IRS's part - but they knew they were going to get hung - IMO, it's a great opportunity to put a flat tax in place & eliminate a majority of that department.

    Well, uh, they did not exactly come forward on their own. The tax exempt division has been under investigation for a year by an Inspector General due to complaints since 2011. The report of that investigation is due to be released next week or soon. Lerner was at a conference of the American Bar Assn. and was asked about the report and if it was true that organizations had been targeted.

    That's how the acknowledgment and off-hand apology was made. How she worded her response is interesting. She said organizations had been targeted, but that it was not intentional.

    Not intentional?

    There are some closet Libertarians on RTF, they just can't see past the Dems and Repubs right now. I am all for shutting down the IRS, firing all their employees without any parachutes and returning the massive savings to the most abused group in this country. The American tax payer!
    It's time we abandon our party affiliations and rather than being good Dems or good Repubs we all become good Americans. MJH345
