Fox "news" took some time out from their faux Benghazi outrage to go after the IRS for spending money on office furniture.
Ron Paul tells Fox's Neil Cavuto that his 501(c)(4) organization, Campaign for Liberty, has been fined by the IRS and is going to fight their requests to turn over their donor list. According to RT, "the group’s paperwork was absent a Schedule B form — required by the IRS from American tax-exempt nonprofit organizations that receive $5,000 or more in donations each year — that would list the names of contributors and how much they handed to an organization."
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.
Darrell Issa held another faux hearing Wednesday to pretend he really wants Lois Lerner to testify, but this time Democrats were ready for him.
This is some welcome news. I'd like to see the tax exempt status of these political groups pulled completely, but these new rules are at least a step in the right direction:
Lawrence O'Donnell may not have had much luck with his petition to get the White House to do something about the IRS not following the statute on these 501c4 groups and their tax-exempt status when they're clearly nothing more than political organizations, so here's hoping that Rep. Chris Van Hollen gets some better results with the courts.
Despite the fact that the IRS fake scandal has been debunked and recent revelations that the IRS was also targeting progressive groups, Fox's Cavuto and Erickson continued playing the victim card for these so-called "tea party" groups.
After the final nail in the coffin that should be putting this IRS fake scandal to rest, where we found out that the Internal Revenue Service’s screening of groups seeking tax exempt status also targeted those with names that included “Israel,” ”Progressive” and “Occupy," MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell had a suggestion to fix this matter once and for all.
If anyone wasn't sure what excuses they were going to come up with on Fox to keep beating the IRS scandal drums over these tea partiers and their tax exempt status that they shouldn't be qualifying for in the first place, here's your latest example.
MSNBC's Joy Reid calls out National Journal's Ron Fournier or Politico's Maggie Haberman for continuing to carry water for Darrell Issa and his IRS witch hunt.
