IRS' Lois Lerner gave confidential Tea Party tax info to FEC, violating law


The Internal Revenue Service shared highly confidential tax information of several Tea Party groups in the IRS scandal with the Federal Election Commission, a clear violation of federal law, according to newly obtained emails.

The public watchdog group Judicial Watch told Secrets Thursday that it was former scandal boss Lois Lerner who shared the information on groups including the American Future Fund and the American Issues Project.

The emails obtained by Judicial Watch show that the IRS, which was considering the tax status of the groups, gave the FEC the tax returns of the groups, including income, expenditures and staff pay. The emails also revealed the exact working of the prying political questions the IRS wanted the groups to reveal, such as their goals and the requests for brochures and ads.

The information, sent via email, to the FEC came in response to the organization’s questions about whether the IRS had granted tax-exempt status to the Tea Party groups. It is unclear how the information the IRS sent was going to help the FEC, since the IRS hadn’t determined the tax status of the groups yet.

The emails were produced to Judicial Watch last week by the FEC in response to an Aug. 9, 2013, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.

So why aren't the powers that be prosecuting her? hmmm  ... sounds like a one party system like they had in the USSR

Can you imagine the media outcry and the outcry from the left if we had a Republican President doing all this?  He'd already be impeached.

There is no left or right -  SS and the Swastika ( two crossed S's ) were used to stand for "Salute Socialism"

Interesting picture of PCoCP combined with Swastika  to show the close association ...

[ The full name of the Russian component of the USSR was "Russian Soviet Federated Socialist Republic" (which in the Cyrilic alphabet would come out as PCoCP .... Rossiyskaya Sovetskaya Federativnaya Sotsialisticheskaya Respublika ... sorry, the "o" symbol is the closest I can get to show up here as the Cyrilic "F  ]

It doesn't matter what her political persuasion is--she should be arrested and put in prison as she violated the law.  She is not immune to the law--so who is going to go after her?

I am well aware of the "false left-right narrative".  However, the fact remains, there are many people who are NOT aware and identify themselves as "Left"  or "Right" - and make decisions based on that political orientation.  This whole situation would be handled totally differently if we had a Republican President.  Primarily because the Leftist journalists in this country would have been going after the Republican President 24/7 - not covering for him as they've done for Obama.
