Hold On, Aren’t The People Are The Victims Here?

Hold On, Aren’t The People Are The Victims Here?

M.D. Kittle writing for The Daily Caller reported on January 11, 2019 that, “conservative groups that had been targeted by Lois Lerner at the Internal Revenue Service were receiving settlement checks.” But wait a minute, was it not the People who were the victims here? Many questions remain in the minds of the People, but the courts seem to have left out a penalty to the actual perpetrator.

The committee is investigating allegations that the IRS targeted conservative non-profit organizations with the words “tea party” and “constitution” in their names for additional scrutiny.

MADISON, Wis.—Dozens of conservative organizations are receiving late Christmas presents years after the IRS handed them a lump of coal. 

The federal government in recent days has been issuing settlement checks to 100 right-of-center groups wrongfully targeted for their political beliefs under the Obama administration’s Internal Revenue Service, according to an attorney for the firm that represented plaintiffs in NorCal v. United States.

Three of the claimants in the $3.5 million national class-action suit are based in the Badger State. 

“This is really a groundbreaking case. Hopefully it sets a precedent and will serve as a warning to government officials who further feel tempted to discriminate against U.S. citizens based on their viewpoints,” Edward Greim, attorney for Kansas City, Missouri-based Graves Garrett LLC told MacIver News Service.

The travesty of justice in this case is that the perpetrator was permitted to retire with full benefits and does not appear to be accountable for her actions. So once again the victims pay for what was done to them, and the perpetrator walks.
