Does The IRS Scandal Go Beyond Scrutiny Of Conservative Organizations Right Down To Individual Donors?

Posted on: May 26, 2013

Here is an interesting observation. Just a couple of days and less than a week after one of the most significant political scandals in modern American history, the IRS scandal involving conservative organizations, the episode seems to have blown over already. Not one major media outlet had any mention of it on their front page this morning. Only Fox News had a story on the front page and it was down at the bottom.

Why do I bring this up?

Because nobody at the congressional hearings has asked or seems to be asking the question that is lurking at the back of everyone’s mind regarding the IRS Scandal, “Did the IRS obtain lists of donors to the conservative organizations which they scrutinized and did The IRS harass those individual citizen donors?” Or, “Did the IRS attempt to harass and intimidate individual donors to those conservative organizations?” I think we all know the IRS routinely targets conservatives, but to use a list from one of the conservative organizations would have a chilling effect on donations to those organizations. Perhaps that is the intent of this entire scandal, to do just that, frighten donors who give to conservative organizations.

Nobody is asking that most significant question, more significant than all the others, “Did The IRS harass known individual conservatives?”

That is THE QUESTION at the back of everyone’s mind. Unfortunately, I think we all know the answer to that question. Obviously we are not going to get the truth.
