BREAKING: IRS scrutiny went beyond Tea Party, targeting government critics!!
An IRS campaign to apply additional scrutiny to conservative groups went beyond targeting "Tea Party" and "patriot" groups to include those focused on government spending, the Constitution and several other broad areas.
The additional guidelines created by the agency were part of a timeline, obtained by Fox News, from the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration, which is looking into the controversial IRS practice. IRS officials apologized Friday for the scrutiny, but new information suggests senior leaders were apprised of the effort as early as 2011 despite public denials from the top.
Republican lawmakers have vowed to investigate and hold hearings, calling the revelations deeply troubling.
"The conclusion that the IRS came to is that they did have agents who were engaged in intimidation of political groups," Michigan Rep. Mike Rogers told "Fox News Sunday." "I don't care if you're a conservative, a liberal, a Democrat or a Republican, this should send a chill up your spine. It needs to have a full investigation."

Today in Washington: IRS scrutiny included government critics

Washington -- An emerging scandal involving the Internal Revenue Service took a new turn with the revelation that the IRS singled out for scrutiny nonprofit groups that criticized the government and wanted to educate Americans about the Constitution, the Washington Post reports today.

The newspaper cited documents in an audit conducted by the IRS Inspector General's Office, which uncovered the policy decisions made by staffers in the agency's Cincinnati field office. The office handled all applications for nonprofit status.

This is truly outrageous and it contributes to the profound distrust that the American people have in government," Collins told CNN's "State of the Union." "It is absolutely chilling that the IRS was singling out conservative groups for extra review. And I think that it's very disappointing that the president hasn't personally condemned this."

Obama Calls IRS Scrutiny of Conservatives 'Outrageous,' Dismisses Benghazi Dispute as 'Sideshow'

President Barack Obama said it would be “outrageous” if the Internal Revenue Service targeted conservative groups and that he would hold the agency accountable, while angrily dismissing the new reports last week over the editing of Benghazi talking points by his administration as a “sideshow” trumped up by his political opponents.
“If, in fact, IRS personnel engaged in the kind of practices that have been reported on, and were intentionally targeting conservative groups, then that’s outrageous. And there’s no place for it. And they have to be held fully accountable,” Obama said during a joint news conference with British Prime Minister David Cameron.

On Benghazi, Obama said, “We don’t have time to be playing these kinds of political games here in Washington.” He said the focus on how the talking points were written is a sideshow that distracts from the real question of how to protect foreign service officers who risk their lives to serve.

I know, but here is what happens when you are a democrap all you have to do is say, "If someone was offended I am sorry" and no matter what, the media says end of story...

The only thing you could wish for is that Obama and Hillary change their party affiliation and then maybe the media would hold them accountable...and the chances of that happening are what?

A few years back I noticed that many of my friends were complaining that they were being audited. Now these people are every day working people that are far from rich but live a comfortable existence. The only thing that they had in common is that they all voted Republican.

I know for a FACT that some of the government critics were people who went to a major conservative forum. I don't know if I can name it or not so I won't. The forum I speak of IS NOT a conspiracy forum.

So...I am talking here about average people that were outspoken and voiced their concerns about the state of our union under the OBummer administration.
