Chuck U. Schumer Encourages Obama To Use IRS To Harass Opposition

Well, thanks to a lap dog press, the Democrats got away with it last time. Why worry about them this time?
New York Sen. Charles Schumer (D) doubled down on his previous calls for President Obama to use the IRS to target Tea Party groups while speaking before the extreme-left, tax-exempt Center for American Progress (CAP) yesterday.

The Washington Free Beacon reports that Schumer advocated that Tea Party organizations be targeted, saying, “the Obama administration should bypass Congress and institute new campaign finance rules through the IRS.”

Schumer is further quoted as saying: “It is clear that we will not pass anything legislatively as long as the House of Representatives is in Republican control, but there are many things that can be done administratively by the IRS and other government agencies — we must redouble those efforts immediately."
 
“One of the great advantages the Tea Party has is the huge holes in our campaign finance laws created [by] the ill advised decision [Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission].”

 Currently, the IRS has proposed regulations that would institutionalize the political targeting that Schumer urges. If they became law, and were equally applied, CAP, the Sierra Club and a number of George Soros's front groups, including ProgressNow, would be at the front of the line for IRS scrutiny.
No they wouldn't. As with every other law, Obama will simply grant waivers to friends and allies.
