There were a lot of those Tea Party groups that were for profit, and out to make a buck. With this uproar, I am afraid they will now get special treatment that other groupd don't get, because the IRS will be afraid to "tread on them."

Why didn't Sack show Obama driving the car? He is the one that ordered the behind the back investigation. KGoBama is now in action. Just ask the AP.

Good one Sack, now let's see a cartoon on Ted Mondale. You forget that one? Classic political satire...

I guess I missed the facts about Obama ordering this, or any of his people ordering all this too. Maybe we need to have a senate hearing? Too much fox news again?

PS... I suggest that if you do have a congressional hearing on this, that you get that Issa fellow. I heard he is good, and his hindsight is always 20-20, and when he keeps asking the same questions over and over to try to get an answer that he can make a political statement with, but when he doesn't get that answer, we all know there must be a political coverup. Still waiting for the interview of a few IRS agents that said "Obama made me do it." Tick tick tick....

Depicting the Tea "Party" as a snake is fitting.

Doesn't matter which way you lean, citizens need to be concerned about govt. rifling though the sock drawers of organizations and their donor bases. That is as un-American as it gets. And when the Dept. Of Justice starts keeping tabs on the phone records of our free press, then everyone ought to be concerned. It's really not a right/left issue, it's a right/wrong issue.

the cartoon should have been Obama walking off after the press conference saying: "I hope that makes them forget about Benghazi." or...Obama flipping a coin to decide how he's going to handle this mess: one side of the coin is "blame it on an anti-tea party film."

"Doesn't matter which way you lean, citizens need to be concerned about govt. rifling though the sock drawers of organizations and their donor bases" -------- Organizations shouldn't be trying to get a tax break without proof. Several tea party groups wisely didn't bother with trying to claim tax exemptions. Many 501c4, post-Citizens United groups that sprouted up were fly-by-night operations. A political "Universal Life Church" if you will.

It should be noted that when this happened in 2012 the director of the IRS was Doug Shulman (who stepped down on Nov. 9th, 2012.) He was appointed by George W. Bush in March 2008. He gave a nice parting gift to the Conservative Echo Chamber didn't he?
