"Lerner said the practice was initiated by low-level workers in Cincinnati and was not motivated by political bias." "Many conservative groups complained during the election that they were being harassed by the IRS. They accused the agency of frustrating their attempts to become tax exempt by sending them lengthy, intrusive questionnaires."

Yes, the IRS should apologize. Given apologies are on the table, where are the following ones?

Paul Ryan and Republicans are promoting an austerity budget for America based upon a Harvard Report that was debunked by a PHD student from Massachusetts.

The Heritage Foundation is against immigration reform touting it will cost taxpayers $6.3 trillion dollars. One of its lead authors for the Heritage Foundation report also writes for white supremacy magazines and appears to be a blatant bigot.

Weapons of mass destruction were never found in Iraq.

Insurance and drug companies are supposedly overcharging Medicare $716 billion. Obama is trying to stop this overcharging while Republicans claim the $716 billion being stopped by Obama is from seniors.

Republicans continue supporting tax breaks and refunds to highly profitable big business outsourcing jobs, tax loopholes for our elite, and highly profitable big businesses controlling necessities overcharging our government. Due to their tax pledge to Grover Norquist, House Republicans can’t stop needless tax breaks, tax loopholes and overcharging because Republicans construe them as raising taxes.

"Weapons of mass destruction were never found in Iraq."

LOL. Didn't they find bombs in Iraq? This administration has charged the Boston bomber with using a weapon of mass destruction. The Obama administration claims that the pressure cooker bomb is a WMD, so surely Saddam's bombs were WMDs.

No but the convoys that carried chemical weapons into Syria for days on end were carrying WMD's. That's what chemical weapons are.

The IRS is a disgrace as is this administration. I only wish the masses would wake up.

With the IRS admission of improperly targeting conservative political groups, in their words, a very small targeted number, are they going to review those tax returns and issue refunds for all the overcharges that were undoubtedly made? An apology is just not enough.
02:09 PM on 05/11/2013
Good grief, does the far right know how to read? This has NOTHING to do with tax returns. This is about right wing supremacist groups filing APPLICATIONS to qualify as 501(c) non-profits. Political groups can't be non-profits. The IRS had nothing to apologize for.

The "tone" has been set by the manic desire to get rid of a president the GOP doesn't recognize as legitimate. GOP leaders were plotting to take him down before he had served his first day in office.

Another Lib view, they have the excuses lined up for any incident, "I was not there",
"We did the best at the time",We have to get more proof", "Cant coment now", "If they ever told the truth, this would be a first.

Unless the IRS has been directed to also target black citizens, I don't see your point.........but am willing to listen.

An "apology"? There, that should take care of it. Now, on to other things. After all, it was just an election for President. No problem.

When the democrats apologize for fighting the use of ID for voting.
Your going to have to prove you have healthcare in this country but not have to prove your a citizen to vote.
That's called liberal logic.

3400 applications..300 singled out...1/4 of this because of the words tea part and patriot...teabaggers yet to explain how they are not a political organization trying to influence elections... a RULE..aka LAW to be considered a 501(c)(4)...looks more like the IRS was doing exactly what they should have been doing...investigating groups trying to subvert tax laws. If anyone is breaking law it's these "patriots"

They will probably apologize next time they do it as well. Too little too late. Any chance of anyone being reprimanded or losing their job? I doubt it.

There are a list of criminal acts that the Inspecor General Team have identified and posted on the their website. Most of them deal with income tax forms submitted to the IRS. Some of these cases involved IRS agents who were fined, imprisoned and/or punitive actions.

There is this AIMES database the has all our data which has to be dumped and destroyed after so many years that can only be accessed via management approval. This data that is stored in this database can not be used for various purposes outlined by IRS. ... One is targeting groups.
Since IRS admits some groups were targeted I think the IG should be doing their job and look further into this so in the future there is no target group activity going on.

Sabanne Oxley was put into action to mandate internal controls into banks and businesses so employees and customers could not be harmed all because of greedy bankers and top managers in corporations.

This action shows harm to any groups ( in all tax exempt) status who the IRS perceives as a threat to their status quo can be manipulated by IRS. The actions paid by taxpayers. This is a form of greed and power that Sbanne Oxley was meant for to enforce internal controls within banks and corporations. Rather ironic the Government who wants to protect the people from unscrupulous bankers and corporations will just accept an apology from one of their own without further punitive actions.

This is about right wing supremacist groups filing APPLICATIONS to qualify as 501(c) non-profits. They knew they were filing false apps since political groups can't be non-profits. The IRS had nothing to apologize for.

President Obama must be Superman because he's the only human that can be everywhere doing everything and never get seen doing anything but trying to help the American people. And why is it when the GOP is caught in sex acts, harass women health, name-call, race-bait, etc come out with lame apology the media doesn't shine the spot-light 24/7 365. Keep trying because its tough and does not wash off.

Here's common ground for both liberals and conservatives. All heartily concur that the temptation to abuse power is irresistible. Who said we were such a polarized nation?

This kind of abuse is shameful, wrong and infuriating. It was wrong when these kind of abuses of power happened under Nixon, and they are still wrong now. If anything, the IRS should know better today. This is one way to stoke the ire of most Americans, because even those who oppose conservative organizations understand that interests can be targeted by those in power just as was done here. Two (or three or four) wrongs don't make a right, and this is just wrong.
