IRS Sent Sensitive Info of Tax-Exempt Groups to FBI Before 2010 Elections

by Ali Meyer, CNS News:

The IRS sent a 1.1-million page database containing legally protected taxpayer information of tax-exempt organizations to the FBI several weeks before the 2010 midterm elections, according to new information from the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

“The IRS’s transmittal of this information to the FBI shows that the IRS took affirmative steps to provide sensitive evidentiary material to law-enforcement officials about the political speech of nonprofits,” said Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) and Subcommittee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) in a letter to the IRS Commissioner John Koskinen demanding more information.

“At the very least, this information suggests that the IRS considered the political speech activities of nonprofits to be worthy of investigation by federal law-enforcement officials,” they said.  “The IRS apparently considered political speech by nonprofit groups to be so troublesome that it illegally assisted federal law-enforcement officials in assembling a massive database of the lawful political speech of thousands of American citizens, weeks before the 2010 midterm elections, using confidential taxpayer information.”

    In spite of the verbosity employed in this article, it can be summed up rather neatly as “dirty politics”. This is no different from the Watergate break-in of the Nixon era where the lefto-communists went absolutely ballistic. The Dem lapdog press did as well… of course. Funny how this shoe fails to fit when placed on the other foot. But then, that’s nothing new. It’s the same old double standard BS that the left is so very fond of, probably because so few of the public ever seems to catch on to it.

    It’ worse than that Ed, when you consider that both parties are twins, speaking in harmony 90% of the time and the rest just idiosyncratic of their sales pitch to their faithful. No, it’s more than just politics, it’s tyranny by them, symptomatic of a bureaucracy gone feral. This is a re-run of the Stasi State. There’s naught left of America and the constitution. They’re gone and the only thing left to do is rise up and resist them. Turn your back on them and do not comply.
