The IRS is just another politicized wing of the Obama campaign. It’s clear that it has a significant workplace culture problem and that problem makes it vulnerable to abuses.

In one case the Office of Special Counsel, which investigates federal employees who conduct politics on government time, said it was “commonplace” in a Dallas IRS office for employees to have pro-Obama screensavers on their computers, and to have campaign-style buttons and stickers at their office.

In another case, a worker at the tax agency’s customer help line urged taxpayers “to re-elect President Obama in 2012 by repeatedly reciting a chant based on the spelling of his last name,” the Office of Special Counsel said in a statement.

OSC said it is seeking “significant disciplinary action” against that employee.

Another IRS employee in Kentucky has agreed to serve a 14-day suspension for blasting Republicans in a conversation with a taxpayer.

“They’re going to take women back 40 years,” the IRS employee said in a conversation that was recorded. The employee also said that “if you vote for a Republican, the rich are going to get richer and the poor are going to get poorer.”

That employee went on to tell the taxpayer she knew she wasn’t supposed to be voicing her political opinions, and asked the taxpayer not to say anything.

These are the cases that were caught. Just as with voter fraud, the question is how often did this sort of thing really happen?

The IRS now carries the Obama brand.

Of the IRS lawyers who made contributions in the 2012 election, 95% contributed to Obama rather than to Romney.

    How are “the rich,” going to get impartial or fair treatment from such an organization? Like conservative nonprofits, donors, supporters, and Republican politicians, they aren’t.

      It’s a totalitarian class war. If they had even better weapons…they just might use those too. But they already have the IRS so I’d say things are getting serious.

    If the agency is that far in the pocket of the DNC it is time for Congress to completely defund it as a first step to eliminating it.

    The Committee to reelect Obama absolutely was involved with using the I.R.S. to go after Obama’s political enemies after the Republicans won the house in 2010.Lois Lerner did not do this by herself. Question Jarrett, Axelrod, Cutter, Burton, and the rest and you will get all the answers. You know this true because all of the Democrat party is against this investigation. LOIS LERNER NEVER DID THIS BY HERSELF.

    The question has come to me from time to time whether when Americans finally come to understand the monster hiding in the man, Obama will have a similar end to that of Mussolini. When all is said and done and the smoke clears, I don’t think Americans will take kindly towards a man who seeks to destroy their very souls as well as their treasure. It seems to me that this may well end very badly indeed.

    No big surprise. A statist organization supporting a statist. Part of the master plan of stealing another election. Impeach the guy.

    And I get grief for suggesting the IRS get funding cut to the point they don’t have time to be political. Money provided to the IRS is like the government funding a PAC at this point. Also take regulation writing authority away from the IRS since they’ve proven they can’t be trusted with it.

    Leftists have no problem with this. We must take back congress all the way and start enforcing laws (and holding leaders accountable) again.

    But aren’t federal employees just an extension of the DEM party, of course the result of huge DEM funded pay packages.

    I think what bothers me the most is the blithe unconcern over doing their jobs.
    There seems to be no sense of doing anything wrong when they decide to act as partisn hacks instead of doing what they are being paid to do.
    Can they not grasp that what they are doing is essentially telling people its “ok” to to do the same?
    Would they still feel the same should conservatives act like they do?
    I’m guessing not.
    Maybe that is the real problem—the Left is comfortable in a no rules street fight because they KNOW conservatives will adhere to Maquis Of Queenberry (sp?) rules and fight “fair.”
    The people invloved need to be punished and punished harshly for their unethical and illegal acts.
    Failure to do so merely encourges more bad behavior. And the next time it might be a conservative on the other end of the phone.
    Maybe the Left should consider that the rules are there for EVERYONES protection……including them.

    Don’t believe this horse hockey… it is as big of a lie as can be seen.
