According to the latest polling by Rasmussen, the IRS scandal is still very much on the minds of Americans, and still considered to be the worst scandal of the Obama administration.
I am one of the IRS scandal’s victims. Based on the details of my case I believe I was targeted for persecution on direct orders of the Obama White House. I don’t think that’s much of a stretch considering the IRS Chief visited the White House 157 times in Obama's first term, and Obama himself met with the head of the IRS employee’s union the day before the targeting started.
More importantly, I believe my targeting is a tip-off to how deep this IRS scandal goes. If I was targeted as an outspoken critic, so were hundreds of other Obama critics and political enemies. But based on my conversations with many of my personal friends and associates who wrote checks to the Romney campaign, I believe the core of the plan was to target GOP donors- as I first reported a year ago.
I believe this was clearly racketeering- a well coordinated, widespread, purposeful plan to destroy Obama’s political opposition and bleed dry the lifeblood of the GOP- donors. If proven, it should be punished with impeachment and prison terms for all involved.
Now out of the blue, the IRS suddenly claims they targeted progressive groups too. Interesting that this was never mentioned by any IRS big shots before now. Even more interesting is the fact that no liberal or "progressive" group in the entire nation has come forward in all these weeks with any facts to show they were harassed like Tea Party groups.
But, there’s no reason to debate and argue anymore. This can be easily settled.
The solution is so simple:
All we have to do is pull the file of every taxpayer audited by the IRS in the first 4 years of Barack Obama's Presidency. Then simply match the audits with publicly available political registration information.
Wanna bet that Republicans were audited at a far higher rate than those registered Democrat?
Then let’s take it a step further. Let’s compare the list of audited taxpayers with a list of political contributors- publicly available at the FEC (Federal Elections Commission). I’ll bet that Republican contributors were audited at least four times as often as Democratic contributors.
Is anyone willing to take me up on my offer?
I believe we might find GOP contributors were audited as much as ten times more than Democratic contributors. Certainly we’ll find the audit rate among the highest levels of GOP contributors (those who maxed out) to be shocking. I’m betting that even the biased-liberal media will be flabbergasted at the disparity.
