The list of conservatives targeted by the Internal Revenue Service for audits, excessive tax-exempt scrutiny, or tax privacy breaches include Tea party groups and their donors, the conservative Hollywood group, Friends of Abe, Franklin Graham, Christine O’Donnell, a pro-marriage group, Dr. Ben Carson, Dr. Milton Wolf , (Obama’s Republican cousin who is running for Senate in KS), and ObamaCare critics Bill Elliot and C. Steven Tucker.
Were we supposed to believe it was all a big coincidence?
Washington attorney, Cleta Mitchell was on The Kelly File with Megyn Kelly Thursday night to discuss new allegations that conservative donors were 10 times more likely to be audited by the IRS than the average citizen.
Cleta said, “this is an area I’ve been increasingly concerned about in the last year since this scandal broke because people have contacted me from all over the country, talking about how they had never been audited before” they donated to a conservative organization.
“In one case,” she said, “a gentleman was a song writer, and he donated a song. He wrote a song about the tea party, and it was played a number of different tea parties around the country, and the IRS not only audited him, but because he didn’t charge for the use of that song, they said that he doesn’t really have a music writing business and are now trying to disqualify all of his business deductions.”
She added, “I have heard story after story, after story like this.”
