IRS Officials Knew About Tea Party Targeting

Judicial Watch released nearly 300 pages of FBI documents that reveal top IRS officials knew of the targeting of conservative groups two years before disclosing it to Congress.

Top IRS officials Lois Lerner and Holly Paz "knew that agents were targeting conservative groups for special scrutiny as early as 2011," Judicial Watch reported.

Judicial Watch was able to obtain the new treasure trove of documents through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit.

According to the docs obtained by Judicial Watch, Paz, a senior member of the IRS, was informed in the spring of 2011 that agents in Cincinnati had put out "Be On the Look Out" guides to flag "cases using the tea party term."

According to the docs, IRS senior official Nancy Marks, who was appointed to conduct an internal investigation said, "Cincinnati was categorizing cases based on name and ideology, not just activity," Judicial Watch reported.

And democrats wonder why people fight the no fly/no gun list. Anyone the government has an axe to grind could be put on the list for no reason at all. So it's a way to abuse without overt public actions. No thanks. The democrats can take their control bill and hysterics and stick it where the 🌞 don't shine.
