The IRS Wants You

Shades of 1984 and Orwell's Big Brother. This is a scandal that had it been perpetrated by the previous administration against liberals? They would have burned Washington to the ground to get to the president responsible to ride him out of office on a rail.

The IRS wants YOU — to share everything

The Internal Revenue Service asked tea party groups to see donor rolls.
It asked for printouts of Facebook posts.

And it asked what books people were reading.

A POLITICO review of documents from 11 tea party and conservative groups that the IRS scrutinized in 2012 shows the agency wanted to know everything — in some cases, it even seemed curious what members were thinking. The review included interviews with groups or their representatives from Hawaii, New Mexico, Ohio, Texas and elsewhere.
The long-awaited report Treasury Department inspector general report released Tuesday says the agency itself decided some of its questions to conservative groups were way over the line – especially the one about donors.
