Human Events: More IRS Abuses of Power Against Conservative Groups (Including NOM)


Shout-out to John Hayward of Human Events for including NOM's longstanding complaint along with other alleged IRS abuses:

Agent Smith"...The National Organization for Marriage, a prominent group that holds the opinion Obama used to agree with, has a long-standing complaint about confidential tax information somehow finding its way into the hands of the Human Rights Campaign, a group that supports Obama’s new position… and is headed by the co-chair of the Obama 2012 campaign.  NOM renewed its calls for justice when the IRS scandal exploded."

    Richard Nixon must be smiling. The great danger is not to NOM or to marriage. It is to honest and law abiding government. A few quotes come to mind.

    The power to tax is the power to destroy.
    --Daniel Webster and John Marshall

    Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.
    --John Emerich Edward Dalberg Acton, first Baron Acton

    A Republic, if you can keep it.
    --Benjamin Franklin

    Publius, not getting tax-exempt status from the IRS is not the same as getting taxed. That NOM wants to conduct political machinations and get a tax break (that is, get subsidized by the tax payers, most of whom dislike NOM and what it stands for) is asking a bit much, don't you think?

    NOM was not "abused" by the IRS. That is a lie. NOM has its tax-exempt status and what does the US taxpayer get as thanks? A hate-mongering, money-laundering organization in violation of Maine election law!
