#BrettKimberlin’s Partner Says the IRS Scandal is Phony


No, really. Brad Friedman wrote that on his blog, The Brad Blog (No, I won’t link to it). (H/T, @rsmccain) Here’s his headline:

IRS ‘Scandal’ Appears Nearly as Phony as Shirley Sherrod, Van Jones, ACORN ‘Scandals’

BTW, Friedman also says that there’s no scandal about Benghazi either.

Of course, Mr. Friedman, who is a cofounder with Brett Kimberlin of Velvet Revolution US and who is listed in VRUS’s most recent IRS Form 990 as a Director of that organization, probably has no objection to strict analysis of right wing nut job outfits by the IRS. How would he feel about an audit of VRUS?

Stacy McCain has further comments on the broader issues of 501(c)4 tax exempt organizations here.

  1. Well I tried via google and gave up after a few. Wanted to ask if there were no politics played by the IRS or if it was ok as long as you targeted conservatives. The odds of there being no politics are as good as the Jets winning the Super Bowl this year. Actually much more remote

  2. Must have been time for “Spring cleaning!”

    Don’t worry, Brad, we grabbed every available page, slowly, over the last few months, and forwarded them to the IRS, with annotations that will aid in their review.

    Heh.

  3. The Threshold Foundation has been really slow about publishing their 2012 Annual Report online this year. Suspiciously slow.
    Considering they have funded DPBK every year since 2007, I’m eager to find out if they funded him in the aftermath of “Everybody Blog About…”
    Maybe an ambitious investigator can give them a call.
