Discrimination against non-profit organizations tied to past IRS director Lois Lerner

(Thomas More Society) – This week, the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Oversight and Government Reform released a staff report entitled “Lois Lerner’s Involvement in the IRS Targeting of Tax-Exempt Organizations,” verifying information that Thomas More Society began to uncover nearly a year ago.

In both May and August of 2013, the Society presented the House Committee on Ways and Means with two memos totaling over 500 pages of evidence and documentation of six different groups that had experienced viewpoint-biased discrimination by the IRS, dating back to 2009.

“For at least four years, discrimination against pro-life and conservative groups by the IRS was taking place under the direction of Lois Lerner,” said Tom Brejcha, president and chief counsel of the Thomas More Society. “It is high time that a detailed investigation be conducted, and it is our hope that it will not only uncover but also help remedy the corruption within the government office of Internal Revenue Service.”

The memos submitted by the Thomas More Society detail the experience of several pro-life organizations that applied for 501(c)(3) charitable recognition and experienced blatant bias on the part of the IRS agents assigned to process their applications. Repeatedly, these pro-life groups were harassed with questions about time spent in prayer at abortion facilities and told that they must educate and advocate on abortion from both sides of the issue. Several Thomas More Society clients – all pro-life organizations – experienced significant delays with their tax exemptions under Lois Lerner’s watch, through “exemption organization specialists” who refused to apply tax-exempt law correctly until legal counsel got involved.

Who is going to do anything about it?

That is the REAL question? Or more properly, Is there anyone in Washington who really WANTS to do anything about it?

I'm pretty sure that the Establishment RINOs are not going to lift a finger. Safe bet that the RATs won't either.

We're screwed.

I can answer that.  The answer is NO.

Can't argue with you on that. Sadly.

The establishment Republicans, who are just a branch off the Democrat party anyway, support IRS targeting the Tea Party just as much as the other Demcrats do. They just can't admit it or it would blow their cover.
 
The establishment GOP supports anything that will damage the Tea Party and keep the American people stupid, compliant, and 'in line'.
 
As McCain once said, the American people should sit down, shut up, and do what they're told!

I would guess Trey Gowdy would, but he already has a lot on his plate.

I wish he was in charge of the committee instead of ISSA and who here thinks IF the GOP takes the senate any of these old fart Senators are going to give a hoot about IRS, NSA or Benghazi... I sure don't.
