Today, on Capital Hill, Washington attorney Cleta Mitchell, who is representing some of the groups targeted and harassed for their views by the IRS, told it like it is:

First, the IRS scandal is real, it’s not pretend, it’s real.

Number two, the IRS scandal is not just a bone headed bunch of bureaucrats in some remote office, contrary to what the president of the United Sates told the American people on Sunday.

And number three, the IRS scandal is not over. It is continuing to this day, and the Department of Justice investigation is a sham. It is a nonexistent investigation.

. . .

The IRS, at the direction of some political elites in Washington, not in Cincinnati, but Washington, took what had been for decades a process of reviewing applications for exempt status, that for a 501(c)(4) organization could be expected to take three or four weeks. And they converted that process into one that could take three or four years, and in some cases, is still not over.

IRSShe is right. Every newspaper and reputable journalistic outfit in this country should be all over this story. That they aren't is a scandal in itself.
