The IRS targeting of "Right Wing" groups tax exempt status and
the Justice Departments tapping AP reporters are chilling examples
of an administration that has (apparently) become too comfortable,
arrogant and thuggish in its 2nd term.
Whether the White House is/was aware of these Nixonian tactics
is worthy of investigation. It's difficult to conceive that no one in
the Executive branch was privy to these illegal tactics.
While I understand the need to prevent leaks, especially when
national security is concerned, I have no doubts that it has been
used as a convenient excuse to fish. Two months worth of phone
records from twenty different lines of the Associated Press via use
of a secret subpoena reeks of hubris.
They are saying it was congressional pressure that led to "rogue"
IRS agents targeting right wing groups (Tea Party, Patriot, Conservative)
Ultimately, it is a failure of management to rein in the corrupt
practices of its agents.
It's time for investigation and heads to roll.
