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.
