It’s no secret that the IRS has long targeted conservative groups. The problem: the federal government has never held them accountable for their discrimination. But that is all about to change.
Many believed the targeting case filed against the IRS in May 2013 to be over — on the contrary, it is emerging even stronger. An Ohio court and a federal judge labeled this case a class action lawsuit, the only class action lawsuit against the federal government.
The Wall Street Journal covers the road to victory for our patriots:
On Tuesday federal judge in Ohio certified a class-action lawsuit against the IRS by conservative groups whose applications for tax-exempt status were slow-rolled between 2010 and 2013.
The lawsuit by the NorCal Tea Party Patriots was filed in May 2013, shortly after the targeting came to light. It will represent more than 200 groups. In July 2014 Judge Susan Dlott dismissed parts of the lawsuit but allowed key portions to go forward. Those include claims that the IRS engaged in retaliation and viewpoint discrimination in violation of the First Amendment, and that the tax agency violated Section 6103 of the U.S. Code, which protects confidential taxpayer return information.
The IRS has been skillfully evading this issue for a long time, making it even more obvious that they have something to hide.
Judge Dlott eviscerated Justice. “My impression is the government probably did something wrong in this case,” she said, “Whether there’s liability or not is a legal question. However, I feel like the government is doing everything it possibly can to make this as complicated as it possibly can, to last as long as it possibly can, so that by the time there is a result, nobody is going to care except the plaintiffs.”
…The Obama Administration can appeal the class certification and no doubt it will try. But there’s still plenty of time to find out what Justice and the IRS are so committed to hide.
The IRS has desperately tried to hide their misgivings, but thankfully, our county is filled with patriots who demand truth and justice. The lawsuit will inevitably uncover the truth– and you can bet that it won’t be in favor of our friends at the IRS.
