"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." -- Theodore Roosevelt

The Obama IRS Sat on Current Scandal Until After Election

"Defying the 'one' only brings misery in the form of the IRS. Know this and act accordingly."

Well naturally... the point was to sway the election toward Obama.

From the Weekly Standard:

NBC's Lisa Myers reported this morning that the IRS deliberately chose not to reveal that it had wrongly targeted conservative groups until after the 2012 presidential election:   
The IRS commissioner "has known for at least a year that this was going on," said Myers, "and that this had happened. And did he share any of that information with the White House? But even more importantly, Congress is going to ask him, why did you mislead us for an entire year? Members of Congress were saying conservatives are being targeted. What's going on here? The IRS denied it. Then when -- after these officials are briefed by the IG that this is going on, they don't disclose it. In fact, the commissioner sent a letter to Congress in September on this subject and did not reveal this. Imagine if we -- if you can -- what would have happened if this fact came out in September 2012, in the middle of a presidential election? The terrain would have looked very different."
Of course the terrain would have been different. Romney would've won by a landslide. Let's face the fact that the 2012 election was tainted by agencies under the control of Obama.

Obama consistently used rather dubious tactics in each of the few election that he has participated in (do we remember the ridiculous tactics used against Hilary Clinton and the harassment that several Clinton supporters have claimed?). Would we expect any less during a tightly fought race for president?
