IRS Targeting Conservatives: IRS Commissioner Visits White House 118 Times In 2010, 2011

By Susan Duclos

From the beginning of the IRS targeting conservatives in 2010 to 2011, the IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman, was a frequent visitor at the White House:

The Washington Examiner reported on Monday that Mark Everson, Commissioner of Internal Revenue from 2003 to 2007, during the Bush administration, visited the White House exactly once while in office. Indeed he felt like he’d “moved to Siberia” so out of the ordinary political loop was he. But Douglas Shulman, Commissioner from 2008 to 2012, during the Obama administration, visited the White House 118 times just in 2010 and 2011. His successor, Steven Miller, also visited “numerous” times.

The targeting began in 2010, continued through 2012 and has recently been shown, by followup letters, into at least May 6, 2013.

The May 6, 2013 followup letter starts on page 8 of the PDF embedded in a WuA article on May 24, 2013.

Yet, Obama denies he knew anything of the IRS targeting of conservatives, pro-Israel supporters, Mitt Romney donors and Tea Party groups?

The White House first denied any knowledge, then Jay Carney was forced to admit senior staff knew, then admit other staff knew, but claims the directive to target conservatives did not come from the White House.

That is a claim that a plurality of voters, do not believe.

[Update] Hopefully one of at least four investigations being launched, will get to the truth of the matter of where the directives came from, who approved the orders and what involvement, if any, the White House had.
