There WAS a group denied by the IRS!

Conservatives are up in arms over the IRS actually targeting groups by name to deny tax-free status. Their claim is that this is a Nixonian attempt by the Obama Administration to target Conservative groups and influence the election.

Well, it seems that there WAS a group that was denied the tax-free 501(c)(4) status by the IRS! And that group was:

the Maine chapter of Emerge America, which trains Democratic women to run for office. Although the group did no electoral work, and didn’t participate in independent expenditure campaign activity either, its partisan status apparently disqualified it from being categorized as working for the “common good.”

But the actions of the IRS did prompt an FBI Investigation, which found:
no evidence warranting the filing of federal criminal charges in connection with the scandal. The FBI stated it found no evidence of "enemy hunting" of the kind that had been suspected

So, once again, the "fiscally responsible" Cinservatives have wasted taxpayer money on a scandal that is not a scandal.

2. Republicans are so predictable that I don't even have to fact-check them.

Whatever they say is stupid and wrong.

Thank you for THIS little gem! It got by me (gosh, how did that happen with the media we have?), but I'll use it OFTEN now.

Since Benghazi is rarely heard anymore, maybe this will make the "IRS" a snoozer, too.

8. One "denied", HUNDREDS tied up in "process" by Lerner's Minions.

There's the dirty little secret you seem to want to avoid talking about.

As if being tied up in the process isn't tantamount to denial.
