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]
