In an interview with SNBC’s Chris Matthews on Thursday, President Barack Obama dismissed the notion that the IRS ever targeted pro-life groups or conservatives. The IRS scandal flared this summer as pro-life groups learned they had been targeted and seen their applications for nonprofit status delayed. The IRS has been found to be targeting pro-life and conservative groups because of their positions and, this summer, a tape was released showing a disturbing phone call the Internal Revenue Service placed to a non-profit organization telling it to keep its Christian faith and views on abortion to itself.
