Tea Party Tax Applications Sent To Top Of IRS
The Obama Administration lied when it claimed the IRS Cincinnati office was a rogue office being unfair to Tea Party organizations at their own local discretion.
Now comes Mr. Hull's testimony. And like Ms. Hofacre, he pointed his finger upward. Mr. Hull—a 48-year IRS veteran and an expert on tax exemption law—told investigators that tea-party applications under his review were sent upstairs within the Washington office, at the direction of Lois Lerner.
The Obama appointees Lois Lerner and William Wilkins did the blocking of Tea Party applications. This so reminds me of Watergate where the scandal gradually reached higher and higher in the Nixon Administration.

I've wondered if all the scandals weren't the reason for the racial agitation by the MSM over the Zimmerman trial. If you'll notice, the trial and the resulting misbehavior pushed Benghazi, IRS targeting conservatives, DOJ tapping journalist's phones, NSA's Prism programing monitoring everyone not to mention the unpopular Obamacare, amnesty and high unemployment rate off the front page. Ain't that a heck of a list? And the MSM didn't break any of those stories. Not a single one. They were all broken by either foreign or alternative news outlets. And they even attacked Sharyl Attkisson for covering them. But once a story gets legs the only way to kill it is to drown it out by screaming about something else. And that's what they did. Think "JournoList".
Americans have voted, year after year, to erect the institutions of tyranny. They will now be governed by them.
