The Other IRS Scandal: Conservative Donors Exposed and Marked For Harassment
June 25, 2014
You’ve heard that the IRS targeted conservative Tea Party groups for undeserved scrutiny but did you know someone at the IRS leaked the personal information of people who donated to traditional marriage groups so they could be harassed by gay activists?
Erick Erickson of Red State…
An Intellectually Honest Media Would Ask This Question
Ignore, for a minute, the IRS targeting of conservative groups and the erasure of seven hard drives at the IRS. Yes, ignore all that for a moment.
While the media is doing its best to avoid that subject, with difficulty, it is absolutely and willfully ignoring another IRS scandal that, had it happened in the Bush Administration, would be the lead story of every nightly newscast and above the fold on the front page of every newspaper in America.
We now know that some person or persons at the IRS intentionally and maliciously leaked confidential tax records of a non-profit organization so that gay rights activists could target the donors of the organization for harassment. We know this from the emails of the gay rights activist who obtained the records through, what he described, as “a conduit” from the IRS. He then sent the data to the gay rights group Human Rights Campaign, which then put the records online. The records contained the names and addresses of donors to the National Organization for Marriage. The IRS is not only seemingly targeting conservative groups, but is now admitting to leaking information about a conservative group so others can target their donors.
Yes, the IRS is admitting someone at the IRS did this and is paying the legal fees of the National Organization for Marriage as a result.http://americanglob.com/2014/06/25/the-other-irs-scandal-conservative-donors-exposed-and-marked-for-harassment/
