IRS harassment of conservatives has been an ongoing scandal. Right in the middle of it, the IRS has begun auditing conservative groups—first, Breitbart and then the maker of a movie about Obamacare.
I’m sure that is nothing more than a coincidence, right?
The Washington Times reports,
Logan Clements, producer of “Sick and Sicker: ObamaCare Canadian Style,” announced via press release Tuesday that he is being audited for the first time ever.
The news comes one month after the conservative Breitbart News announced that it, too, was being audited and that the action was probably politically motivated.
Mr. Clements‘ movie makes the case that Obamacare will eventually lead to socialized medicine like Canada.
In the video, he says the IRS is demanding a “ridiculously long list” of documents, including “a detailed description of all transactions related to all prior year returns and supporting documentation.”
“It sounds like a fishing expedition by the IRS to tie me up for a very long time in retaliation for making a movie against Obamacare,” Mr. Clements says. “Perhaps they were hoping that voters wouldn’t see my movie before the election by keeping me tied up in a battle with the IRS. Well, in fact, their action is going to have the complete opposite effect.”
The IRS has lost all credibility with Americans, especially with Conservatives. It is possible that this is all a coincidence, but it doesn’t seem likely. As a result, it looks like the IRS is continuing to function as an enforcer for Barack Obama. Their job is to harass and intimidate the President’s opponents into silence.
Remember, it is not just the IRS that is prone to this kind of coincidence. OSHA, the BATF, and many other groups in the Federal alphabet soup have reportedly engaged in such behavior.
Furthermore, Lois Lerner, the IRS hack, got a raise for what she was doing.
