    want. There's a lot of history of the IRS being up to no good since the Hoover administration. If the IRS doesn't investigate politically "inconvenient" people, they cut back on resources so corruption flourishes. Then they go back to punitive investigations.

    More recent history of the 2 year investigation of the NAACP is disturbing. I also found where the IRS investigated the Church of Christ for it's tax exempt status because Obama spoke there.

    Yes, the IRS' latest scheme is wrong. At the same time, to me, the delay of granting 5014c status is a far less malicious than what was done to people who had to defend themselves in bogus, expensive and time consuming audits.
