Working for the Democratic Party: When the IRS harassed this tea party group in Toledo in 2011, demanding what books they read or discussed, they responded by sending the IRS a copy of the Constitution.

“They wanted a synopsis of all the books we read,” Bower said. “I thought, I don’t have time to write a book report. You can read them for yourselves.”

Sadly, I doubt the IRS did that.

    You have to hand it to the IRS. They’ve taken the concept “screw you” to a whole new level of obfuscation.

    The more I hear about this whole thing the more I just want to cry. Physically cry.

    Well how about this idea. We will all drop this if the liberals will let us do it when we take back power, no questions asked.
    We will target news organizations and progressive groups. Muslim organizations and liberal universities.
    We get our chance to use the IRS and AG office as our hammer and anvil to grind them into forgotten dust.

    Or they can shut the buck up, quit the with stupid excuses and lets get to prosecuting those involved to the full extent of the law. Both high and low.

    If you send the lower level employees to jail over this the next group coming in will not do the same activity. Plus they might just turn on the higher ups this time.
    Once the higher ups find out they can not get the scrubs to take the fall willingly they will stop asking them to do these things.

    We need to pass a governmental employment rule. Get found guilty of willingly breaking the law and or abusing your office and power you are no longer eligible for that fat government retirement or further government jobs. Including government contractor jobs requiring a background check.

    Wonder what librarians think about this.

    Those responsible should be dealt with by the law. Period.

    It may not happen on a quick enough schedule, but this time, I believe that it will happen. Neither end of the political spectrum will have to deal with this nonsense again.
