I think that the reason the Obamaphiles did this in the first place was to deprive the tea party people of funds. Obama was afraid it would be a repeat of 2010, and he wanted to make sure these guys couldn’t get their messages out. It was all about the elections. And it worked. But now we are seeing the consequences.
Now we are seeing class-action lawsuits against the IRS (Internal Revenge Service). I really hope it goes to court. Discovery would be fascinating, to say the least.
And there are some lessons to be learned.
