Republicans Watch Another Fake Scandal Die; IRS Manager Reveals He Is A Conservative Republican

“He was a conservative!” Rep. Elijah Cumming’s IRS investigation clarified it wasn't liberals targeting conservatives, nor was the White House involved. Wonder if Fox will report it that way? [Image of Cummings hollering about IRS expenditures by Jim Lo Scalzo]  @VosIzNeias

Oh, the sad, sad Republican party and their pathetic attempts to discredit the administration are once again foiled. In recent weeks we have watched a number of right-wing manufactured scandals drown in seas of facts. It was very entertaining, to say the least. First, the hopes of the Republicans to impeach Obama with Benghazi-gate were dashed. And, of course, Fox was being unfairly targeted by Obama with the Rosen scandal. Then Umbrella-gate was quelled almost as fast as it rose. After umbrella-gate, we had the stupidest of them all…..Salute-gate. Finally, the scandal that got Republican’s tinfoil panties in a bunch? The targeting of Tea Party groups by Obama’s liberal IRS hit squad out of Cincinnati.

Oh yes, President Obama was targeting his political enemies by denying them the 501(c)(4) tax exemption that they so rightfully don’t  deserve! How dare he do that?! After all, the conservative groups that were targeted for extra scrutiny were not, first and foremost, political organizations! Those Tea Party groups operate exclusively for social welfare; they are upstanding nonprofit organizations that spend little time lobbying for the right-wing. Right? Oh no, that’s wrong, but in the minds of  members of the Republican party who really care about those pesky fact-thingys? This was definitely an elaborate scheme by the left to silence the right. Those IRS agents were liberal, no doubt about it, and the transcripts of the investigation recently released will prove it.

Representative Elijah Cummings, the top Democrat on the House of Representatives Oversight and Government Reform Committee conducting the probe into the ‘scandal,’ told CNN’s “State of the Union” program, said just that:

“He [the IRS manager] is a conservative Republican working for the IRS. I think this interview and these statements go a long way toward showing that the White House was not involved in this. Based upon everything I’ve seen, the case is solved. And if it were me, I would wrap this case up and move on.”

Wait a second…….he, the main agent involved, was a conservative? That can’t be right! That has to mean that this was in no way politically motivated. A Republican wouldn’t go after its own. So why did he do it?

John Shafer, the IRS manager, told the Oversight Committee that he and another employee set aside applications from groups with “Tea Party” and “patriot” in their names because granting them tax-exempt status could set a new precedent for the IRS. In other words, he was just doing the job he is paid to do, to make sure that groups are not wrongfully receiving an exempt status they do not deserve. It should also be noted that, so far, no conservative groups have come forward to say they were denied the tax-exemption.

Of course, Republicans will surely say that the manager is not a Republican. He is an undercover Democrat. Or his party affiliation proves nothing, he could still have been working in cahoots with the president. Except that investigators asked him if this was a scheme by the White House to target conservative groups and he said:

“I do not believe that the screening of these cases had anything to do, other than consistency and identifying issues that needed to have further development,” the manager answered, according to a transcript released by Cummings. Asked if he believed the White House was involved, the manager replied: “I have no reason to believe that.”

There you have it, folks. One more right-wing, tinfoil hate scandal totally debunked. Certainly we will hear Fox News relaying all of this information to their listening audience later. I’m sure they’ll want to set the record straight, right? HAHAHA!!! No, more than likely we will hear crickets from the mainstream media. Republican attack dog, Darrell Issa, is already saying this proves nothing. Of course it doesn’t! Republicans will, no doubt, continue to waste our money investigating a fairy tale just as they always do and, at this point do, we expect anything less?
