Rogue IRS Shamefully Targets Nation’s Veterans

Scandals: One of the nation's largest veterans groups is being required to provide proof of membership eligibility. Posts that can't or won't comply face heavy fines. Your government thanks you for your service.
The IRS scandal, which President Obama says is "phony," along with the body-bag scandals of Benghazi and Fast and Furious, was once the object of faux presidential scorn. When the president announced acting Commissioner Steven Miller had resigned over his agency's "inexcusable" targeting of Tea Party and other conservative groups who had applied for tax-exempt status, he feigned concern.
"I reviewed the Treasury Department watchdog's report and the misconduct that it uncovered is inexcusable," Obama said. "Americans have a right to be angry about it, and I'm angry about it."
