IRS Chief Met with Obama 2 Days Before New Targeting Rules

The Obama appointee implicated in congressional testimony in the IRS targeting scandal met with President Obama in the White House two days before offering his colleagues a new set of advice on how to scrutinize tea party and conservative groups applying for tax-exempt status.

IRS chief counsel William Wilkins, who was named in House Oversight testimony by retiring IRS agent Carter Hull as one of his supervisors in the improper targeting of conservative groups, met with Obama in the Roosevelt Room of the White House on April 23, 2012. Wilkins’ boss, then-IRS commissioner Douglas Shulman, met with Obama on April 24, 2012, according to White House visitor logs.

On April 25, 2012, Wilkins sent Hull and fellow Washington-based IRS official Lois Lerner “additional comments on the draft guidance” for approving or denying tea party tax-exempt applications, according to the IRS’ inspector general’s report.

Really!  Where’s the rest of the media on this?!

Someone should be going to jail over this.  It’s simply not going to go away.  When a government uses its power to intimidate and harass its opponents that is an abuse of power.  It’s tyranny and cannot be tolerated.

That the MSM has not carried this is an affront to every American.
