If the IRS did nothing wrong, why did the IRS apologize for "improper" treatment of conservative groups?

"The Internal Revenue Service on Friday apologized for targeting groups with 'tea party' or 'patriot' in their names, confirming long-standing accusations by some conservatives that their applications for tax-exempt status were being improperly delayed and scrutinized."

    Even an admission of guilt is not enough to convince the left when one of its own is guilty. They really seem to believe that if they ignore a fact, it becomes untrue.

    If a business refuses to hire a certain amount of blacks, the IRS and Obama will have a hanging party. When the government becomes corrupt, we should do the same dam thing.

    Wow! The Washington Post is not Fox News, is it? Stormy days ahead for El Supremo, methinks.

    The IRS apologized...Obama was appalled at the abuse.

    (then things started pointing toward the White House)

    Now it is phony and nothing even actually happened.

    They scrutinized liberal groups as well.

    In actuality, none of these political groups should be receiving tax-exempt status. They’re not “social welfare” organizations; they’re political organizations.

    doesn't anyone know the IRS was was checking for Political action by non-profit groups which had strict limits on political spending.

    at the time some in IRS reasonably concluded that political action was what the TEA party was all about

    Liberal progressive groups were also checked.

    groups with with names like " people for the care of fussy kittens" were not likely to be politically active.
