Three stories from the past week on the Democrats’ use of the tax machine to attack their political opponents:
- Politico reports that Democrats are threatening companies that if they contribute to Republican campaigns they will be punished in the tax code. (Via Hot Air.)
- The ACLJ is reporting that the IRS has ordered dozens of Tea Party organizations to produce extensive information on their membership, which has been illegal since 1958.
- A federal court has refused to dismiss Z Street’s charge that the IRS “tied its application for tax-exempt status to whether the group’s positions on Israel are ‘contradictory to those of the Administration.'”
Democrats have abandoned our country’s long-standing dedication to the rule of law, and the tax machine is a major battlefront in their effort to undermine it.
