My Comment: If liberal organizations were also put under the microscope for extra scrutiny .... this would be a non-issue. But .... apparently no liberal non-profits were targeted. Instead .... what we have are conservative organizations, donors, supporters, critics of the Obama administration, etc. .... being targeted en masse and in huge numbers by the IRS. Here is an easy prediction .... I think we have seen nothing yet.
