Today it comes out that the IRS has been targeting progressive groups as well as tea party groups. This whole thing has been blown way out of proportion. Doesn't anyone remember the reports during the presidential campaign about some of the big money PACs that were designed as tax-exempt so that they wouldn't have to disclose their contributors? These were primarily radical right-wing PACs.
Now the radical right is whining about how unfairly they have been treated. And today's spin from the radical right is that it doesn't matter that progressive groups were also scrutinized.
