Well anyone who believed liberal politicians and commentators that “Tea Party” was really just a codeword for ALL groups is clearly an idiot. This just proves the IRS was told to target people who disagreed with Obama so he could win the election. We already know people in the White House knew about it as well. Now the question is, did Obama order it or at least know about it? Chances are, yes! If he didn’t, he is incompetent and unfit to lead this country. Not that we needed this to expose that though.

Refuting Democratic suggestions that progressive groups were also swept up in the IRS probe of the tax status of Tea Party organizations, the Treasury Department’s inspector general has revealed that just six progressive groups were targeted compared to 292 conservative groups.
In a letter to congressional Democrats, the inspector general also said that 100 percent of Tea Party groups seeking special tax status were put under IRS review, while only 30 percent of the progressive groups felt the same pressure.
The Wednesday letter to the top Democrat on the House Ways and Means Committee punched a huge hole in Democratic claims that progressive groups were targeted as much as the Tea Party groups from May 2010-May 2012, the height of the Tea Party movement.
The letter from the Treasury Department Inspector General for Tax Administration revealed that there just weren’t many progressive groups who even sought special tax exempt status. A total of 20 sought it, and six were probed. All 292 Tea Party groups, meanwhile, were part of the IRS witchhunt.
