It has become difficult to keep track of all the different “-gates” the Obama administration has suddenly found itself embroiled in: perhaps an appropriate name would be Gate-r-gate? And with the just concluded farce in which Jay Carney passed off all AP-related questions to Eric Holder, who in turn recused himself and told the media to please crucify the Deputy AG instead, it is unlikely that any material new information will be disclosed any time soon. However, courtesy of The Hill [2], we at least have some insight into the first gross offense by the administration revealed last week: the targeting of one political group over another by the supposedly impartial IRS. Specifically, attached below is the full 7 page questionnaire sent by the IRS to the Liberty Township Tea Party containing a list of 35 questions.

Listed here one can find such pearls as “provide details regarding all of your activity on Facebook and Twitter“, “Provide a list of all issues that are important to your organization”, “do you or will you rate candidates”, “you have conducted polls of of your membership to determine which candidates and issues they are supporting. Provide details on this process”, “Do you conduct media advertisements lobbying for or against legislation?”, “Do you directly or indirectly communicate with members of legislative bodies? If so, explain the amount and nature of the communication”, and finally “provide details regarding your relationship with Justin-Bink(sic) Thomas.” It appears Justin is someone who according to the Daily Kos, [3]“claims that the government is bailing out too many people who don’t want to work.” Surely, for the IRS, this is “need to know” information.
