I found this article on The Blaze and thought you needed to see it if you haven’t already. Folks, this is HUGE. It is now known that people of conservative leanings are targeted by the federal government via the IRS for audit.
WASHINGTON (TheBlaze/AP) — The Internal Revenue Service is apologizing for inappropriately flagging conservative political groups for additional reviews during the 2012 election to see if they were violating their tax-exempt status.
Lois Lerner, who heads the IRS unit that oversees tax-exempt groups, said organizations that included the words “tea party” or “patriot” in their applications for tax-exempt status were singled out for additional reviews.
Lerner said the practice, initiated by low-level workers in Cincinnati, was wrong and she apologized while speaking at a conference in Washington.
Many conservative groups complained during the election that they were being harassed by the IRS. They said the agency asked them an inordinate number of questions to justify their tax-exempt status.
Certain tax-exempt charitable groups can conduct political activities but it cannot be their primary activity.
This is a breaking story. Updates will be added as they become available.
So much for political freedom; freedom from persecution for your beliefs. This all the while the globalists want to make outrageous policies and executive orders limiting out freedoms. Where is this going? How will this end?
P.S. I seriously doubt this was started by lower-level employees as Lois Lerner claims.
