Obama Confesses the ‘Real’ IRS Scandal on The Daily Show – WATCH!


Judicial Watch uncovered some disturbing news regarding the targeting of conservatives by the IRS. The watchdog group received documents through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) that prove the IRS actually used donor lists submitted by Tea Party and other 501(c)(4) tax-exempt organizations to target people for audits.

The group announced the information on its website highlighting that the IRS was used as a weapon to suppress free speech.

“These documents that we had to force out of the IRS prove that the agency used donor lists to audit supporters of organizations engaged in First Amendment-protected lawful political speech,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “And the snarky comments about the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the obsession with Karl Rove’s Crossroads GPS show that the IRS was targeting critics of the Obama administration. President Obama may want to continue to lie about his IRS scandal. These documents tell the truth – his IRS hated conservatives and was willing to illegally tax and audit citizens to shut down opposition to Barack Obama’s policies and reelection.”

And, these records contradict recent comments from President Obama. Earlier in the week Obama dismissed the IRS scandal on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.

via The Washington Times:


Obama said Congress “passed a crummy law” that provided vague guidance to the people who worked at the IRS. And he said that employees implemented the law “poorly and stupidly.”

The president went on to say that the “real scandal around the IRS is that they have been so poorly funded that they cannot go after these folks who are deliberately avoiding tax payments.”

Despite the President’s attempt to spin the scandal away from his administration, the IRS previously confessed to targeting people who opposed his presidency. Judicial Watch then proved how they targeted people.



What do you think about President Obama’s belief the IRS needs more funding? Please comment below.
