When there are no consequences for actions, people can just brazenly say they’re going to come after you. Nobody has ever faced any kind of discipline for what went on at the IRS. While the justice department found there was no criminal activity as it related to Lois Lerner, there is no doubt IRS employees targeted conservative groups, making the process for getting tax exempt status much more difficult than it was for other groups.
Now, an IRS employee is claiming he’s going to target conservative groups. Check out the video:
Here is some of what he said:
“I am a lowly clerk at the IRS, looking at your application for tax-free status,” said Bill, the caller from Elizabeth, New Jersey. “I go to your web page to see the goals of your group and one of the goals of your group is to abolish the IRS.”
“You can bet every dollar you got I’m going to go after you and target you and try and end your group and that’s just the way it is,” he continued.
Some people may think, “Oh come on. That’s C-Span. Probably some crank.” Perhaps. But would it surprise you if the person was legit? Why does he care? He sees nobody at the top facing criminal charges let alone, internal discipline. Lois Lerner resigned and is getting a $100,000 a year pension.
Must be nice.
