Finally, some justice for victims of IRS intimidation

Here’s yet another story that the mainstreams’ have totally under-reported. Why? Because it vindicates conservatives’ charges of persecution by Obama’s IRS. Last week Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that DOJ…

… has reached an undisclosed monetary settlement with over 400 conservative groups that had their applications for tax exempt status delayed “based solely on their viewpoint or ideology.”
“The [Internal Revenue Service]’s use of these criteria as a basis for heightened scrutiny was wrong and should never have occurred,” Sessions said in a statement Thursday. “It is improper for the IRS to single out groups for different treatment based on their names or ideological positions.” […]
Court documents reveal the IRS admitted wrongdoing and apologized for the nefarious conduct.
“The IRS admits that its treatment of Plaintiffs during the tax-exempt determination process, including screening their applications based on their names or policy positions, subjecting those applications to heightened scrutiny and inordinate delays, and demanding some Plaintiffs’ information that TITA determined was unnecessary to the agency’s determination of their tax-exempt status, was wrong,” the IRS said in court documents. “For such treatment, the IRS expresses its sincere apology.”

I wrote about this scandal several times (HERE, HERE and HERE) as it unfolded. It’s great to see some degree of justice has finally prevailed. Unfortunately, it’s far too late in the day to really matter. The case can effectively be made that – because the Tea Party was gaining momentum at the very time the IRS went after them – that Barack Obama would have been a one term president without his administration’s illegal abuse of authority.
