Daily Caller Exclusive on Illegal IRS Activity Makes Drudge Report

 

Matt Lewis of The Daily Caller was given access in advance to our allegations against the IRS, HRC and the HuffingtonPost.

His coverage made the front page of the Daily Caller and the front page of the Drudge Report yesterday:

"It is likely that someone at the Internal Revenue Service illegally leaked confidential donor information showing a contribution from Mitt Romney’s political action committee to the National Organization for Marriage, says the group.

In a letter exclusively obtained by The Daily Caller, the organization has asked the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration to “investigate and learn the source of the breach and prosecute those responsible to the fullest extent of the law.” It also provided evidence suggesting the leak might have been the result of “IRS employee misconduct.”

The dispute stems from a March 30 post on the pro-gay Human Rights Campaign’s (HRC) website, which boasted that it had obtained documents revealing that Mitt Romney “donated $10,000 to the National Organization for Marriage [NOM] in 2008 …”

NOM argues that such an unauthorized public release of confidential taxpayer information was a clear violation of federal law."
