95% of IRS Lawyers Donated to Obama


And based on the Tax Prof’s numbers the picture is like that across the rest of the government class which knows quite well which side of the party line its generous government benefits are buttered.

The results for the IRS were striking. Of the IRS lawyers who made contributions in the 2012 election, 95% contributed to Obama rather than to Romney. So among IRS lawyers, the ratio of Obama contributors to Romney contributors was not merely 4-to-1 at previously reported, but more like 20-to-1. The ratio of funds to Obama was even more lopsided, with about 32 times as much money going to Obama as to Romney from IRS lawyers. So has the IRS gone off the rails into hyper-partisanship, leaving behind other more balanced federal agencies? … The data show, however, that the partisanship of the lawyers in the IRS is not unusual or even particularly extreme among federal agencies. In fact, the lawyers in every single federal government agency–from the Department of Education [100%] to the Department of Defense [68%] — contributed overwhelmingly to Obama compared to Romney

You probably won’t have too much trouble guessing which agencies were 100 percent in the bag got Obama. They include the Department of Education, the NLRB and the United Nations.

    Big government is good. For the government.

      Are you suggesting that these lawyers are selfish and mercenary? Good.

  • Steeloak

    I guess it would be fair to say that government is a jobs program for Democrat supporters.

    How many of the country’s lawyers are Jews and how many are liberal/Progressive/Socialist/Communists/Democratic (sic) Party supporters? I’d bet 98-99%.

      Not too many would be conservative Jews, that’s for sure (and conservative as in politically, not the particular branch of Judaism). The problem is Leftism, and many Jews grew up learning at the feet of their elders that the Right Wing (i.e. Republican Party) was out to get them. Therefore to be a good little Jew, they needed to vote Democrat forever, because anything else was Hitler. Some conflated the rejection of anything even remotely right wing, with accepting such things as homosexuality (traditionally frowned upon in Ancient Judaism), communism (because it was not Nazism and was the furthest thing from it, in their minds), and a whole host of other things. For some reason many of these leftist Jews are either agnostic or atheist.

    Technically, this means that 95% of IRS lawyers donated to Obama’s reelection, and you, the reader, did, too, because they’re paid with your tax dollars. How do you like them apples?

    The entire Federal government has become an incestuous cesspool of Leftist activism, tempered only by an occasional Republican Administration during which the career people who stay on in the bureaucracy go dormant like spores, biding their time patiently until conditions for reactivation of their partisan agenda improve.

  • Alleena

    With the government being able to trace your every move, how many contributed because they knew that it would hurt their careers if they gave to Romney or didn’t give at all?

    • onecornpone

      Good point! Just as I’ve predicted with the onset of oCare. WHO in their right mind will dare not contribute at least a token amount to the Democrat Party?

  • OfficialPro

    Lawyers are overwhelmingly leftist these days, for the same reason many Journalists are. Go up to any kid, just any kid, in Law School or Journalism School, and ask them why they’re there. Most will say it’s because they want to Change the World/Make A Difference/Make The World A Better Place™, and as we all know, that’s a path to Leftism because it’s also a path to totalitarianism (if one’s not careful).

    Petty powermongers support megalomaniacal powermonger…..collectivism at its finest.

  • Jim1904

    Shut them all down, defund them completely. We do NOT need shadow governments. These agencies were shadow governments during Bush’s 8 years.

  • Michelle Houghtaling

    The UNITED NATIONS??????

    • kay2861

      I know!!! Hahaha!! I didn’t know the UN was a government agency. We are truly scr*wed!

    People who believe in free enterprise, are more in the private sector. Stupid people in government want to destroy industry aren’t bright enough to understand. Without free enterprise, there is no tax base for there wages.
