How can we KNOW that the White house directed IRS persecution of right wing organizations? Because it’s Commissioner, Douglas Shulman, visited the White house 157 times during the Obama administration, more than any other member.
He visited 118 times during the two years before the 2012 elections, when the IRS was targeting the conservative non-profits. That’s more than once per week.
Shulman was at the White House far more than any CABINET member. His predecessor, Mark Everson was at the White house ONCE during George W. Bush’s administration.
More fun facts.
The ACLJ is representing 25 Tea Party groups in a suit against the IRS.
At least Five Pro Israel groups critical of White House policies were targeted by the IRS.
