  •  There is no evidence (7+ / 0-)

    of the involvement of the Obama administration in the IRS scandal.
    And now we're finding out that of the 300 501c4 applications that were given extra scrutiny, only 72 of them were groups with "tea party" in their name, 11 were "9/12" groups, and 13 were" patriot" groups.

    “If the targeting wasn’t targeting, if the targeting wasn’t based on philosophy, how come only conservatives got snagged?” Roskam confidently asked.

    “They didn’t, sir,” Miller responded. “Organizations of all walks and all persuasions were pulled in. That’s shown by the fact that only 70 of the 300 organizations were tea party organizations, of the ones that were looked at by TIGTA [Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration].”

    Roskam angrily cut off Miller and asserted his statement was at odds with the inspector general’s testimony, then ended his questioning.

    But Treasury inspector general J. Russell George testified during the hearing that no evidence indicated the additional review of the 300 groups was politically or ideologically motivated. He blamed the incident on mismanagement.
