"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

Rep. Elijah Cummings Linked to IRS Scandal

Rep. Elijah Cummings (D)

Surprised? You shouldn't be. Obama and the Democrats were adamant about maintaining control of the presidency, and obsessed with keeping political power out of the hands of the rising conservative factions in America. Breaking laws meant for little people is all in a days work for these people.

Besides what's the point of political power if you can't lord it over your lessers. Isn't that right Rep. Cummings?

From the Washington Examiner's article by Susan Ferrechio:

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., has accused the panel's top Democrat of prompting the Internal Revenue Service in 2012 to target a conservative organization applying for non-profit status. 
Issa said records obtained last week from the IRS show communications from the office of ranking member Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., about True the Vote, a Texas-based, non-profit conservative group that aims to prevent voter fraud.  
The communications at one point involved Lois Lerner, the ex-IRS official whom Issa's panel is poised to hold in contempt of Congress on Thursday for refusing to provide testimony about her involvement in targeting conservative groups. 
“The IRS and the Oversight Minority made numerous requests for virtually identical information from True the Vote, raising concerns that the IRS improperly shared protected taxpayer information with Rep. Cummings’ staff,” a statement from the Oversight panel reads. 
According to Issa, Cummings and his staff sought “copies of all training materials used for volunteers, affiliates, or other entities,” from True the Vote. 
Five days after the Cummings inquiry, the IRS sent True the Vote an email requesting “a copy of [True the Vote’s] volunteer registration form,” “… the process you use to assign volunteers,” “how you keep your volunteers in teams,” and “how your volunteers are deployed … following the training they receive by you.” 
Issa said Cummings and his office asked for more information in January 2013 about True the Vote, this time getting Lerner involved. 
At one point, an email revealed, Lerner asked her deputy, “Did we find anything?” 
When the deputy said she had not received any new information, Lerner responded, “thanks – check tomorrow please.” 
Issa said Cummings had previously denied asking the IRS about True the Vote. 
At a February subcommittee hearing, when Issa asked whether his office may have put True the Vote “on the radar screen” of the IRS, Cummings said the accusation was “absolutely incorrect and untrue.”

How can there be any question that the partisan IRS was targeting conservative groups?

From Jim Hoft at The Gateway Pundit:

The IRS Conservative Targeting Scandal involved:

The only real question is who was responsible. I'm sure it all has nothing to do with Obama and IRS official Sarah Hall Ingram's 155 visits to the White House.
