The headlines say it all:
[Editor’s Note: Yes, it is “bad judgment” to abuse other Americans because of their political beliefs. It’s also “illegal,” and “immoral,” and “scummy,” and “disgusting,” and “corruption,” and “worthy of imprisonment.” And, if it were under a Republican President, it would be “worthy of impeachment.”]
- Lew: Yes, IRS Scandal is ‘Phony’ — Here’s a key excerpt:
Finally, Lew repeated the claim that both conservative and liberal groups were targeted. ”There was equal opportunity bad judgment,” he said. ”It was conservative groups, it was progressive groups.” The inspector general has debunked this assertion several times, most notably in a letter to Ways and Means Committee ranking member Sander Levin. Of the 298 applications scrutinized for political involvement between May 2010 and May 2012, 96 included “Tea Party,” “9/12,” or “Patriots” in their names. Others contained terms like “liberty,” “freedom,” and “make America a better place to live.” Six included the terms “Progress” or “Progressive” in their names. Zero included the term “Occupy.” And while 30 percent of progressive cases were deemed “political,” every tea-party case received the designation, and the subsequent scrutiny.
That is what the treasury secretary considers equal opportunity, it appears.
Sorry, maybe Lew’s not an idiot, but rather a disgusting, revolting sleazeball who’d rather lie to your face than investigate Obama Administration corruption. Of course, there is the possibility of a more innocent explanation: there’s just too much corruption in the Obama Administration to investigate.
