Another Judge Confirms: IRS Targeted Tea Party Groups

Yet another judge has ruled against the IRS over its unconstitutional targeting of conservative and tea party groups based on their political views. As USA Today noted [1], a federal judge found this month that there was “strong” evidence that the IRS “had discriminated against conservative groups [2] because of their political stances.” Judge Michael R. Barrett wrote in his decision that the Texas Patriots tea party group had “made a strong showing of a likelihood of success” on its claim that its free speech rights were violated by the IRS lengthy delay in processing its application. “The evidence strongly suggests that the IRS initiated the delay” because the Texas group was affiliated with the tea party, the judge wrote.

As USA Today reported [1], “IRS officials in 2013 acknowledged they had singled out conservative-leaning ‘public interest’ groups for extra attention while reviewing their applications for nonprofit status … That led to a major scandal and several investigations by Congress … It also caused the resignations or firings of several top IRS officials, including then-Commissioner Steven Miller as well as other administrators tied to the targeting.”

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
