IRS apologizes to groups with "Tea Party" or "patriots" in their titles for overzealous audits of their applications for tax-exempt statusThe Internal Revenue Service apologized to Tea Party groups and other conservative organizations on Friday for what it now says were overzealous audits of their applications for tax-exempt status.
Lois Lerner, the director of the I.R.S. division that oversees tax-exempt groups, acknowledged that the agency had singled out nonprofit applicants with the terms “Tea Party” or “patriots” in their titles in an effort to respond to a surge in applications for tax-exempt status between 2010 and 2012.She insisted that the move was not driven by politics, but she added, “We made some mistakes; some people didn’t use good judgment.”“For that we’re apologetic,” she told reporters on a conference call.

Just shows how much govt is trying to limit our freedom'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'

Where is the outrage in the press? If this were a conservative regime doing this to something like the ACLU, it'd be on every news outlet in the country.For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.

Nothing like the abuse of power. It happens no matter what party is in charge. This is nothing but spin because they got caught. Pricks. I so despise political jockeying.
