    There is no evidence that "these groups" scammed anybody, and to be anti-tax is not illegal (not to mention the obvious fact that, no matter what their organizational position on taxes, here they were trying to put themselves in compliance with tax law).

    It's puzzling your vociferous defense of the indefensible. As I asked in another thread, given that Islamist organizations are responsible for much in the way of worldwide terrorism, would you care to defend automatic extra IRS scrutiny and years of delay in issuing rulings for any group with that came up tilt on terms like Moslem, Muslim, Allah, Islam, mosque, Palestinian, etc.?

      IRS response to it and what I see is a bureaucratic snafu because of an inundation of new applications not an organized conspiracy of left wingers to suppress freedom.

        I read the IG report as well, in addition to a wide range of coverage on all sides of the political divide. The key issue is not the examination, it was the selective nature of the scrutiny—which peculiarly persisted through multiple instances of protest on the part of groups affected and of having the problematic nature of the selection terms pointed out to those responsible for these things. "Oops, my bad!" just doesn't cover it.

      You're a idiot. I can't place the name but you sound like somebody on Fox News.

        Both idiots and Fox News. Probably you shouldn't, given your frail mental state, watch such broadcasts. I know that I don't. In accord with your perceptive diagnosis, I never watch NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, MSNBC or any broadcast news. I read the NY Tiimes and have NPR on whenever I'm at home. You should try the same—you may find that the meds will no longer be necessary. And you maybe eventually be able to remember things like the name of whoever it was I reminded you of. You have my best wishes for recovery of your wits.
