IRS scandal

During the Obama Administration, the Internal Revenue Service discriminated against conservative organizations by making them wait for years just to gain tax-exempt status. At the same time, other groups received the same status in a very short period of time, such as a satanic group which received nonprofit status in only ten days.[1][2] In 2017, the Trump Administration ended the scandal by settling with the affected organizations and apologizing,[3] but it still declined to prosecute IRS official Lois Lerner for her major role in the scandal.[4]

Origins

Theconservativetreehouse.com observed:

As a result of a trillion dollar stimulus filled with scheme and graft; and as a result of Obamacare being similarly schemed in backroom deals and late night votes; President Obama was “shellacked” in the November 2010 election.

The White House didn’t see the defeat a flawed policy issue; rather as the entrenched ideologues they are, they saw the SCOTUS case “Citizens United" as the principle tool used by the White House opponents to organize and fund political movements, ie. the Tea Party.

The Obama Team response to the 2010 Shellacking was to use the Dept. of Justice (AG Eric Holder) to weaponize the IRS and go after groups -like Tea Party Groups- organized under the financial umbrella of 501(c)(4) donation structuring.[5]
