IRS Finally Releases List of Targeted Conservative Groups

The Internal Revenue Service has proved a useful henchman in liberals' crusade to take down conservatives and conservative organizations.

Three years ago, the IRS admitted to targeting conservative groups, specifically, for investigation. Now the government body has released a near-complete list of the organizations it targeted.  Some 426 organizations were named on this most recent list (a far cry from the 298 quoted by IRS inspector general back in 2013). An additional  40 organizations were not named as they opted out for being part of a class-action lawsuit.  The Washington Times reports

The tax agency filed the list last month as part of a court case after a series of federal judges, fed up with what they said was the agency’s stonewalling, ordered it to get a move on. The case is a class-action lawsuit, so the list of names is critical to knowing the scope of those who would have a claim against the IRS.

But even as it answers some questions, the list raises others, including exactly when the targeting stopped, and how broadly the tax agency drew its net when it went after nonprofits for unusual scrutiny.

The government released names of 426 organizations. Another 40 were not released as part of the list because they had already opted out of being part of the class-action suit.
