Following the day’s myriad news stories on Benghazi, Associated Press allegations and the IRS targeting right-of-center organizations, the highly anticipated Treasury Department‘s report on the blossoming IRS scandal released late Tuesday is relatively small comfort for Tea Party groups, according to political strategist and attorney Michael Bakker.
The report does strongly suggest that management style of President Barack Obama — leading from behind — may have presented the White House with yet another scandal: lack of adequate supervision at the Internal Revenue Service that allowed agents to target tea party, patriot and other conservative groups for additional probing whenever they applied for “501 (c) (3) nonprofit” tax exempt status, according to a report released Tuesday by the Department of Treasury.
Inadequate management contributed to rank-and-file agents to target mostly Republican and Libertarian leaning organizations for more than 18 months, according to the report of the Treasury Department’s inspector general’s investigation.
