Technically? Yes, probably by accident. The fact that some progressive groups were also targeted seemed to make Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY) feel better. In his world, it’s OK for the IRS to abuse its authority, intimidate taxpayers, and suppress voter participation, as long as it does it to everyone. What?
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.
As the numbers break down, there were 292 Tea Party groups targeted, and 6 liberal groups targeted. It is safe to say that the regime has its own version of the KGB. It’s called the IRS.
