TheTeaParty.net to IRS: "Apology not accepted"

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- In response to IRS officials today admitting that its agents actively targeted Tea Party groups for increased scrutiny during the 2012 election, the nation's largest Tea Party group and a subject of IRS inquiries over the past year, issued the following statement:

"What we've long suspected to be the case is now confirmed to be true. The Obama administration has used the IRS as a political weapon. The IRS may claim that it is 'sorry.' But given the damage that has been done, their apology is not accepted," said Niger Innis, Chief Strategist for TheTeaParty.net.

"What would Democrats have done if the Nixon administration ordered the IRS to actively target the National Organization of Women or the American Civil Liberties Union? Nixon had his own enemies list and resigned. These activities are eerily similar, and yet Obama remains in office even in light of Fast and Furious, the Benghazi tragedy, and now the active targeting of his political opposition. We demand a thorough independent investigation into who did what, when, why, and how far up into the administration this scandal goes. We would expect intimidation like this from third-world, tin-pot dictators, not our own US government."

Editorial Comment:

The claim in this Media Release (and various places on the internet) that -- The Obama administration has used the IRS as a political weapon -- is debunked at www.forbes.com. Whilst that article specifically does mention illegalities, the suggestion that President Obama or some other administration official 'got to' the Commissioner of the IRS is debunked on the following basis:

  • Because the Commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service during the period in question was Douglas Shulman, a political appointee of President George W. Bush.
