The moment the American public heard about the IRS singling out conservative groups for auditing and extra vetting of their tax exempt applications, the first question that came to the minds of most Americans was – how high would this scandal reach?
There is very little that scares the American public more than the thought of an IRS agent showing up at their door asking questions about their tax returns. And the thought that this could possibly occur based solely on their political views is beyond terrifying to most Americans.
At the moment there is still no definitive evidence that the White House knew about these despicable IRS actions, but some circumstantial evidence has begun to emerge that the White House could possibly know more than they are letting on.
According to an analysis done by The Daily Caller, former IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman visited the White House at least 157 times under the Obama administration.
This is more visits than any other cabinet member, and is more than doubled the number of visits that Attorney General Eric Holder made to the White House.
This of course begs the question – what in the world would have caused the IRS Commissioner to visit the White House 157 times during a 4-year span?
Asked to explain his frequent visits to the White House, Shulman said “The Easter Egg roll with my kids … questions about the administratibility of tax policy … our budget, us helping the Department of Education streamline application processes for financial aid.”
157 White House visits for Easter Egg Rolls, tax policy, budget and financial aid…really? That’s his explanation and he’s sticking with it?
Something tells me that we are just at the tip of the iceberg in terms of how deep this scandal may stretch into the White House.
It is no secret that the mainstream media has been consistently supporting the president over the past five years. On numerous occasions they have essentially squashed stories that very well could have evolved into full-blown scandals for the president.
But this one is a bit different.
Whether you are a Republican or Democrat, pro or anti-Obama or couldn’t care less about Washington politics, the government using the IRS to intentionally target groups that may have views different to their own terrifies every single American.
This is precisely the type of action that Americans have been wary about for more than 200 years, and is the type of government intrusion that our founding fathers wanted to avoid at all costs.
How high this scandal will reach remains to be seen, but you can be assured that at this very moment there a bunch of bulldog reporters out there trying to uncover the type of evidence that will make them this generation’s Bob Woodward or Carl Bernstein.
This is one scandal that even the mainstream media will most likely vigorously pursue, and that has to have every member of the Obama administration shaking in their boots.
If Obama’s hair wasn’t completely grey before, it certainly will be by the end of this IRS scandal.
