On Obama’s watch, people who work for the IRS targeted innocent tax paying citizens for unfair scrutiny because they didn’t like the politics of the Tea Party.
This was a scandal of the highest order and the media largely ignored it.
Now these people are playing the victim.
Truth Revolt reports:
IRS Officials Say Their Lives Are in Danger if They Testify About Tea Party Bias
During a hotly-contested Presidential election, the IRS decided to delay the tax exempt applications for various Tea Party and conservative organizations. Now that it’s time for the guilty to deal with their unconstitutional behavior, the big bad government bullies are shaking in their boots. At least, that’s what they want you to believe. The FreeBeacon has the story:
Current and former IRS officials are asking not to publicly testify about the agency’s alleged bias against Tea Party and other conservative organizations, claiming they are in danger if they do so.
Former official Lois Lerner and Holly Paz both argued in recent filings under seal in the U.S. District Court in Cincinnati that the death threats and other harassment they have faced take precedence over the public’s right to hear their testimony on the case of IRS bias against conservative groups…
Does this even pass the straight-face test? Mark Meckler, the co-founder of Tea Party Patriots, criticized their cowardice. “Tea partiers were subjected to scorn, ridicule, abuse and threats precisely because of what people like Lois Lerner did to us.
These corrupt IRS officials should not be allowed to hide behind their fear.
They should be prosecuted for what they did to innocent Americans.
