You know who Max Baucus is, he’s one of the lying crapweasels who helped craft ObamaCare, then recently called this monstrous legislation a “train wreck,” while announcing his retirement. The little weasel doesn’t want to be around to answer for his crimes against humanity when people show up in Washington with torches and pitchforks after ObamaCare takes hold!!
Baucus is also one of the corrupt democrats who is supposedly “leading the investigation” into the IRS scandal targeting Tea Party groups, Jewish groups that support Israel, and Conservatives in general.
There’s a real problem with this though. It seems in 2010, around the time the IRS started assaulting Conservatives, Senator Baucus used his powerful office to urge the IRS to do that very thing: Start attacking Conservatives.
That Baucus is being allowed to investigate his own crimes, and cover his tracks, is just too fantastic to comprehend.
From Pat Dollard:
Democratic Montana senator Max Baucus is leading an investigation into why the Internal Revenue Service targeted conservative nonprofit groups for extra scrutiny despite the fact that Baucus once wrote a letter urging the IRS to do exactly that.
Baucus, chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, will head the committee’s investigation into the IRS, which apologized Friday for targeting groups with the terms “Tea Party” and “Patriot” in their titles for extra scrutiny of their nonprofit status as early as 2011.
However, Baucus once wrote a letter requesting that the IRS engage in that very conduct.
Baucus wrote a letter to then-IRS commissioner Douglas Shulman dated September 28, 2010 urging the IRS to investigative nonprofit conservative groups during the Tea Party-dominated 2010 midterm elections.
“With hundreds of millions of dollars being spent in election contests by tax-exempt entities, it is time to take a fresh look at current practices and how they comport with the Internal Revenue Code’s rules for nonprofits,” Baucus wrote in the letter.
“I request that you and your agency survey major 501(c)(4), (c)(5) and (c)(6) organizations involved in political campaign activity to examine whether they are operated for the organization’s intended tax exempt purpose and to ensure that political campaign activity is not the organization’s primary activity,” Baucus wrote in the letter.
“The tax exemption given to non-profit organizations comes with a responsibility to serve the public interest and Congress has an obligation to exercise the vigorous oversight necessary to ensure they do,” Baucus said in a 2010 statement accompanying his letter.
Though Baucus identified 501 (c) (5) groups — or labor unions — as worthy of investigation, the only organizations cited in his request were conservative, pro-Republican groups.
Baucus specifically named Americans for Job Security, which is described as a “pro-Republican organization,” as a specific target for the IRS to investigate.
Crossroads GPS, co-founded by Karl Rove, and American Action Network, chaired by former Republican senator Norm Coleman, were also cited in press coverage related to Baucus’ letter as pro-Republican groups helping to elect GOP congressional candidates in 2010.
Those organizations appeared in a September 16, 2010 TIME article by writer Michael Crowley titled, “The New GOP Money Stampede.” Baucus cited that piece in his letter to the IRS.
What this tends to support is the notion that all democrats in power do not respect the Constitution, or the American people. This tends to prove that no democrat is above using Nazi like tactics in order to destroy their opponents. This evil has become institutionalized in our government, and to some extent, tolerated. Washington is a sewer and needs to be completely cleaned out from top to bottom.
With Baucus retiring I doubt anything whatsoever will happen to him, and he will draw his spectacular pension for the rest of his sorry life.
Can you even imagine the uproar had a Republican Senator pulled a stunt like this?
In a perfect world, tar and feathers would be the most cherished commodities in America, with torches and pitchforks running a close second!
