One day after an Aug. 4, 2011 meeting of IRS officials who gathered to discuss the handling of Tea Party tax-exemption applications, an appointment was made for William J. Wilkins, head of the IRS Chief Counsel’s office and one of only two political appointees there, to meet at the White House.
Four days later, on Aug. 9, 2011, Wilkins kept that appointment, according to White House visitor records.
The IRS was doing its job. There is no way the Tea Party should get a tax exemption. It is a political party. Whiny #$%$, did you get incensed when a progressive party was denied a tax exemption? If not, you are a hyprocrite.
How do you square Media Matters getting a 501c tax status or the Center of American Progress?
And by the way, the tea party is not affiliated with any political party. They just want to limit government from taking over our lives. So far it has been a losing battle.
