IRS Employees Put Up Obama Stickers, Told Callers to Re-Elect Obama

Posted By Daniel Greenfield On April 9, 2014 @ 11:11 am In The Point | No Comments




The IRS is just another politicized wing of the Obama campaign. It’s clear that it has a significant workplace culture problem and that problem makes it vulnerable to abuses.


In one case the Office of Special Counsel, which investigates federal employees who conduct politics on government time, said it was “commonplace” in a Dallas IRS office for employees to have pro-Obama screensavers on their computers, and to have campaign-style buttons and stickers at their office.

In another case, a worker at the tax agency’s customer help line urged taxpayers “to re-elect President Obama in 2012 by repeatedly reciting a chant based on the spelling of his last name,” the Office of Special Counsel said in a statement.

OSC said it is seeking “significant disciplinary action” against that employee.

Another IRS employee in Kentucky has agreed to serve a 14-day suspension for blasting Republicans in a conversation with a taxpayer.

“They’re going to take women back 40 years,” the IRS employee said in a conversation that was recorded. The employee also said that “if you vote for a Republican, the rich are going to get richer and the poor are going to get poorer.”

That employee went on to tell the taxpayer she knew she wasn’t supposed to be voicing her political opinions, and asked the taxpayer not to say anything.

These are the cases that were caught. Just as with voter fraud, the question is how often did this sort of thing really happen?

The IRS now carries the Obama brand.


Of the IRS lawyers who made contributions in the 2012 election, 95% contributed to Obama rather than to Romney.

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams
