IRS Scandal: Coming Soon to California
When the IRS scandal broke in 2013, Democrats initially claimed to be as outraged as Republicans that the federal government had singled out conservative non-profit groups for scrutiny, delay, and investigation.
But it was quickly made clear that Democrats had urged the IRS to do exactly what it did, in violation of the law. President Barack Obama and his party quickly pivoted to use the scandal to renew their attacks on conservative 501(c)4 non-profit groups.
California's new Attorney General, Xavier Becerra, intends to pursue non-profit groups -- and conservatives will be a likely target again.
