IRS Asked For Reading List Of TEA Party Group

Political organizations aren't allowed tax exempt status without the filing requirements submitted. Lesson to be learned: Don't behave like a political entity and you won't be scrutinized like one. Pretty friggin' simple.

On a side note, does it feel like late winter 1933 to anyone else?

So the IRS is fine with a non-profit Jewish group which zealously advocate views on Israel that's the same as the Administration? Like J Street?
And any group which says they want to 'make America a better place' in their purposeis suspect, even if they want to build homes or improve children's health?Because that's what the IRS was doing.

BUT IT WON'T BE. WILL IT? That would be RACIST. Fair play for all is RACIST.
Over 500 Tea Party organizations have been targeted by this corrupt administration. Senate Democrats and the Obama cronies are responsible for this corruption.
Kenyan politics in America. Obama talks shit but does nothing to punish the guilty which means he's part of the quilty.

You don't know what party (if any) is mine. Don't assume. You know what that leads to.

We have seen this type of power abused before in this nation, with audits, enemies lists, surrendering and quitting the battlefield of a long fought war.
Break-ins and wire tapping of a rival political parties campaign offices.
The POTUS then was Richard Milhous Nixon, He resigned along with his VPOTUS to keep from being Impeached and possibly jailed for perjury and outright lying.
Just as the Current POTUS, Barack Hussein Obama aka Barry Soretero aka Choomey.
All in all, Nixon is what Obama has evolved into, and that's what Obama is. A Nixonian POTUS with all the ruffles and flourishes, bells and whistles. A lying Politician by the common known name.

AW: The claim being made in comments is that the IRSis going after non-profits which are engaged in politics, with all the questions and demands for documentation, and not only Tea Party/conservative groups/pro-Israel groups. But the IRS isn't going after groups like J Street, which is a non-profit that is involved in politics. The difference? J Street is shillsthe sameviews on Israel as the White House.
And the IRS was going after groups that had said they wanted to 'make a bettter America' or something similar. It's hard to see how that automatically makes the group a Tea Party or a conservative organization (The group might want to build houses like Habitat of Humanity, or improve the lives of Children.) - unless you are a leftist employee of the IRS who thinks those are buzz words for the Tea Party.
