So-called IRS scandal is a charade orchestrated by Darrell Issa – Applesauce - Rockford, IL - Rockford Register Star

So-called IRS scandal is a charade orchestrated by  Darrell Issa

The Treasury inspector general (IG) whose report helped drive the IRS targeting controversy says it limited its examination to conservative groups because of a request from House Republicans.
A spokesman for Russell George, Treasury’s inspector general for tax administration, said they were asked by House Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) “to narrowly focus on Tea Party organizations.”
The inspector general’s audit found that groups seeking tax-exempt status with “Tea Party” and “patriots” in their name did receive extra attention from the IRS, with some facing years of delay and inappropriate questions from the agency.
But top congressional Democrats have wielded new information from the IRS this week that liberal groups were also flagged for extra attention on the sorts of “be on the lookout” lists (BOLOs) that also tripped up conservative groups.

So instead of a White House scandal, we now learn that it was a US House of Representatives scandal!  Smoke and mirrors to blame President Obama for another make believe scandal...
