Looks like the IRS commissioner’s top aid visited the WH over 300 times, all udring the time that the IRS was targeting conservative organizations to limit their participation and effectiveness in the 2012 election cykce.
While congressional lawmakers are questioning why former Internal Revenue Service Commissioner Douglas Shulman paid dozens of visits to the White House during his tenure, Shulman’s top political aide seems to have spent even more time working side-by-side with members of the Obama administration.
White House visitor logs show Shulman’s chief of staff, Jonathan M. Davis, appears to have visited the White House and adjacent Eisenhower office building as many as 310 times between the fall of 2009 and February 2013.
Davis’ background is in technology and had no expertise on tax issues , according to some IRS sources who said Davis served mostly as a political aide who served with Shulman to the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, where Shulman was vice chairman, and then followed him to the IRS.
Jason Stverak, head of the Franklin Center for Government and Public Integrity, said the visits raise more questions about the connection between the White House and the IRS at a time when the tax agency was targeting conservative groups. IRS officials said the targeting was initiated internally, but lawmakers have suggested that someone higher up in the administration had actually ordered the targeting.
Yeah, sure. This was just coincidental shit, and nothing bad happened. This administration just has this bad luck that all these nefarious things seem to happen that benefit or their agenda them big time, but they never seem to know what’s going on or are the good luck to plead plausible deniability. And the leftards in the media eat that all up and don’t bat an eye. How many more scandals need to come to light before those defending these scumbags come clean that this is all just too much to be coincidental? I guarantee you that for every one we know there are dozens unknown. Maybe if we told them Sarah Palin was involved these mendicant reporters would finally do some real digging. In her case they will leave no stone unturned and root through every garbage can, but for Team Blue they only drag their reputation through the gutter to provide cover.
Anyone that doubts the IRS was giving marching orders from up high to kneecap and hinder any organization that Team Blue felt might give them a hard time in the 2012 election needs to have their head examined or admit they are partisan hacks. Nixon, I remind you, got screwed over for much less than these crooks have so far been shown to have done.
