IRS Villain Who Targeted Tea Party Groups Targeted Christian Coalition During The 1990s
Check out this Fox News report today. Terre Haute campaign finance lawyer Jim Bopp tells Fox News that Lois Lerner, the IRS villain who targeted the nonprofit applications of Tea Party groups, targeted his client, the Christian Coalition, as a top enforcement officer for the FEC back in the 1990s over a period of three election cycles, a case the FEC ultimately lost. The case was the largest campaign finance case brought by the FEC in its history at the time. Bopp claims Lerner was promoted by the Clinton administration for her hatchet work to the position at the IRS which she used to target conservative groups in the lead up to the 2012 election cycle. Lerner, who took the 5th Amendment when called to testify today before the House Ways & Means Committee, now heads up a unit at the IRS responsible for enforcement of the Affordable Care Act.
