IRS admits Nixon-like targeting taxpayers for political purposes

The Internal Revenue Service on Friday acknowledged that it flagged political groups with "tea party" or "patriot" in their names for special scrutiny when they applied for tax-exempt status, repeating the kind of actions that were in the impeachment charges that forced former president Richard Nixon to resign.

This comes on the same day that some members of the mainstream media are turning against President Barack Obama over the lies and coverup in the Benghazi matter. President Nixon was forced to resign because of a coverup of the Watergate matter, where nobody was killed, while four people were killed in the Benghazi matter. This is an administration whose members believe that they can break any law or say any falsehood and get away with it because the mainstream media has always been totally in the tank for Obama, and would always find some way to support him. Friday's turnaround could be politically significant. Washington Post
