  •  it appears the IRS has targeted Progressive groups (6+ / 0-)

    for quite some time.  OTOH, the IRS is supposed to be the watchdog for nonprofits and there was a proliferation of RW 501c4s immediately after the Citizens ruling.  It seems it may have been prudent to target certain groups for possible fraud in the formation of their nonprofit.

    After all, LEAs have targeted certain groups such as some Muslim groups for years with only crickets as protest (though we remember the great uproar when an agency report dare suggest that the RW was the core of many conspiracies to do harm and commit mayhem)

    •  The targeting started before the proliferation (0+ / 0-)

      One of the more recent facts that have surfaced is that the targeting by the IRS started before the ramp up in requests. So the notion that the IRS had to triage because they were overwhelmed, and understaffed, and were just looking for benign shortcuts isn't holding any water.
