Obama Scandal Of the Day #2 -- The IRS!

Early in his administration, Barack Obama made a not-too-veiled threat to abuse the IRS. Now it appears that the threat was carried out last year just as the Obama Campaign faced serious heat from his opponents.

The IRS apologized Friday for flagging Tea Party groups for a higher level of scrutiny than other organizations during the 2012 election.

Lois Lerner, the director of the agency’s section that oversees tax-exempt organizations, said that career employees at an Ohio office had plucked out groups with “patriot” or “Tea Party” for additional reviews — a decision she termed an “error in judgment.”

Those employees, Lerner told reporters on Friday, were “less sensitive than they should have been about the impact this might have.”

“We made some mistakes,” Lerner said. “For that, we apologize.”

Interestingly enough, the White House refuses to tell the American people when it first became aware of this abuse of power, despite the fact that conservatives complained of it in the spring of 2012 and even provided documentation of the outrageous and illegal demands being made by the tax agency -- and while the MSM applauded the effort. Also, why is it there has been no discipline -- no terminations -- of the guilty parties? Why have there not been indictments and prosecutions for what is clearly illegal activity -- and civil rights violations -- by these IRS employees?

Senate Republicans want an investigation of this outrage and House Republicans promise one after having been "misled" (lied to) last year when they looked into the matter. Even Obama supporters, allies, and ex-employees are chiming in for an investigation. And over at Legal Insurrection, we are reminded that the IRS is to be the muscle that will enforce ObamaCare's insurance provisions -- just imagine what they will be able to do once they expand their scope into every aspect of our medical records!

People need to go to jail for a very long time over this one. And who knows -- we may even find that this matter, not Fast & Furious, Benghazi, and the many other failures and atrocities of this administration may be the thing that compromises the Democrats and brings down Obama. After all, I'm old enough to remember a much more popular president going down very quickly over a third-rate second-story job.
