The RNC's Reince Priebus continues to flog their faux IRS "scandal" with Fox's Greta Van Susteren and says they're suing the agency over delays releasing documents they've requested.
April 15, 2014

Faux "news" and the RNC are determined to keep this fake IRS "scandal" of theirs in the news cycle come hell or high water. RNC chair Reince Priebus joined Fox's Greta Van Susteren this Tuesday evening to announce that the RNC is going to sue the IRS over delays in releasing documents they've requested.

I'd still like to know how Bush appointee, Lois Lerner, suddenly became some evil liberal that was supposedly working behind the scenes to deny all of these conservative groups their tax exempt status. The real scandal is that any of these groups from either side of the aisle, which are political organizations, are getting a tax exempt status in the first place. They all should be denied.

Instead we're going to be treated to the right continuing their drumbeat, screaming that these groups are somehow being discriminated against, because they don't want to pay their taxes like the rest of us have to as Van Susteren and Priebus were here: ‘We’re Done Playing Footsie’: RNC Suing IRS Over Documents Delay:

The RNC is suing the IRS over documents related to the agency’s alleged targeting of conservative groups.

RNC Chairman Reince Priebus told Greta Van Susteren that the RNC asked for the documents in May 2013. Under the law, the IRS has 20 days to respond to a request, but can ask for extensions.

Priebus said it has now been more than 220 days, and the IRS has asked for multiple extensions.

“We’re done playing footsie here with the IRS,” he said.

The RNC is seeking documents related to Lois Lerner, documents that came and went from the White House to the IRS, and documents between the Cincinnati and D.C. offices.
