JAIL TIME FOR IRS PROBE

GOP House speaker Boehner has proposed jail time for those responsible for the IRS’s investigations of Tea Party campaign finances. Really.

For years the IRS has investigated groups, those not in favor with the government; no one was investigated and followed more than Dr. Martin Luther King. What the IRS is guilty of is not investigating the tax exempt Super Pacs of both political parties, funded by millionaires to finance political campaigns.

These Pacs were formed under a tax structure to aid those in need, charitable organizations, not elections.

These groups were not targeted because of the powerful people in those groups.

If we want to send people to jail for crimes, let’s start with the infamous group that lied to the American public about ‘weapons of mass destruction’ a needless conflict killing, wounded, and caused mental conflict on thousands of Americans in Iraq.

Shall I name names?

  1. If I remember correctly it was Mr. Obama who, even before being sworn in, said we need to look forward, not back, indicating that whatever the previous administration did was ok with him. Of course, with the constant flow of scandals coming from his administration I have no doubt he’s hoping for the same forgiveness. Lucky for them all the American people have a 30 second attention span.

      • Maybe this will help:

        “Mr. Obama added that he also had “a belief that we need to look forward as opposed to looking backwards.”

        Obama also said that that there should be prosecutions if “somebody has blatantly broken the law” when asked about prior administration wrongs. Guess no laws were broken because there sure as hell is not anyone in jail.

        While were discussing scandals, anyone seen John Corzine lately.. Chalk another one up for Holder.

  2. Its a good start indeed.. Just don’t get sore when Boehner and the Repubs pull out all the stops. Pelosi had her chance. She and the Dems in the House could have wiped the floor with Bush and his administrations flagrant disregard for the rule of law. Instead they lost the House, lost their chance, lost the respect of their base and ended up with a leader who won’t look back. Why? Because they were complicit in all of it.

    Boehner is going to make a point of dragging every little administration misstep through the mud for the next two years and guess what…his base is loving it.

  3. So Steve Miller resigns (wonder what his cushy retirement package will cost the tax payer), but the woman in charge of the tax exempt office at the time of the scandal, who’s public career should also be over, simply gets rotated. At least she’ll have plenty of conservatives to pick on at her new post.

    From ABC News:

    Sarah Hall Ingram served as commissioner of the office responsible for tax-exempt organizations between 2009 and 2012. But Ingram has since left that part of the IRS and is now the director of the IRS’ Affordable Care Act office, the IRS confirmed to ABC News today.

    Her successor, Joseph Grant, is taking the fall for misdeeds at the scandal-plagued unit between 2010 and 2012. During at least part of that time, Grant served as deputy commissioner of the tax-exempt unit.

    Grant announced today that he would retire June 3, despite being appointed as commissioner of the tax-exempt office May 8, a week ago.

  4. Just keeps getting better:

    Sarah Hall Ingram, the IRS executive in charge of the tax exempt division in 2010 when it began targeting conservative Tea Party, evangelical and pro-Israel groups for harassment, got more than $100,000 in bonuses between 2009 and 2012.

    Ingram received a $7,000 bonus in 2009, according to data obtained by The Washington Examiner from the IRS, then a $34,440 bonus in 2010, $35,400 in 2011 and $26,550 last year, for a total of $103,390. Her annual salary went from $172,500 to $177,000 during the same period.

    Bonuses as large as those awarded to Ingram typically require presidential approval, according to federal personnel regulations.

      • You’ll get no argument from me regarding the ratio of CEO to employee pay, but most CEO bonuses and perks are board approved. Most board members are shareholder elected. At least there is some process. If I don’t like it I sell my shares and invest in what I deem a better run company. Exactly where do I opt out of paying these lifetime civil servants bonuses for committing crimes.

  5. This all too funny!! Anyone who stands up for political america today deserves just exactly what they get!!!!!! Do Not even talk to me until the IRS has stolen AT LEAST $50,000.00 from you !!!!!!! I was looking at retirement at 62 now I will have to work at best, until I die !!!!

    • You probably would not make statements like that if they took your 401k like they took mine, I find no humor at all in your comment !!!!!!!

    • Pretty weird feeling getting that letter in the mail that says The IRS has taken all your money isn’t it !!! Especially when they then tell you that it probably is not right but you can’t do anything about it anyway !!!

    • According to the New York Post, there is a movement to ” lay claim to a portion of the $ 18 trillion sitting in 401K accounts” to help pay for the deficit. Congressman George Miller a Democrat of California was working on such a bill several years ago, but it was tabled. Now with the even higher deficit, any thing is on the table. Of course, the IRS and Congress would not lie.

    • Long story short: in 2011 the IRS went all the way back to 2001 and claimed that I made $540,000.00 that year and that I owed $274,000.00 on that. With my bonus that year I made $95,000.00. My lawyer, accountant, affidavits from 2 states, The U.S. Tax advocates office and, The Office of U.S. Senator Chris Coons could not convince them otherwise. They took my money and said there is nothing that anyone can do about it. Anyone want to keep wondering why I hate the U.S. Government!!!!!!!!

      • Maybe one of those 16,500 new IRS agents can take time from collecting the new taxes from Obamacare to help you out.

  6. Being an IRS agent is not the most popular job in the country, but in their defense of the Tea Party investigation and the other Super Pacs, these groups of both parties, laundry money to so many other pacs it is very difficult to trace the flow.
    I know when I was Election Commissioner, in this small state, a political pacs money could end up split into many more pacs. God only knows what the IRS went through.
    On the surface from the media it looks political, but thus far no current or former employee has said they were ever told who to investigate.
    Surely someone would have snitched if wrong was being done.

    • Yesterday, ABC News, not Fox by the way, released a report that details what journalists have faced while trying to get some answers from the Cincinnati IRS office, which is where a majority of the Tea Party targeting took place. An employee said ….
      that staffers have been threatened with their jobs if they are caught talking to the media. Security guards gave a warning cemented by the punch line “or risk losing our jobs”. What is the concern? When, by a wide majority, conservative groups were targeted, honest people cannot deny something is fishy. At the same time liberal groups, accordingly reported by most news agency, were rushed through. What’s the old saying, where there’s smoke there fire?You cannot or will acknowledge that there is a problem.

  7. Because as you and other FOX News followers say; the liberal media doesn’t tell the truth. So now you want to trust the liberal media? The truth will come out. Give it time.

      • Their was an interesting interview last night from a retired IRS executive from the Cincinnati office who had no reason to comment, but gave an entirely different scenario that what the Republicans and the media are reporting. Guarantee you the network wasn’t FOX!
