On Thursday, Megyn Kelly of Fox News reported on a developing story out of tinseltown where the group Friends of Abe -- a networking group for Hollywood conservatives -- had allegedly been targeted by the IRS.
The report began with Fox west-coast anchor, Trace Gallagher, who stated the following:
“The group is called 'Friends of Abe', named after Abraham Lincoln, and its made up of 1500 conservative members of the entertainment industry. They gather for things like meals, drinks, and to learn about the political process. It is now seeking 501(c)(3) tax exempt status, so that donations could be tax deductible just like some progressive groups. Getting the exemption would prohibit the group from partisan activity. Now 'Friends of Abe' acknowledges having speakers like Karl Rove and Herman Cain, but they deny having a political agenda. 'Friends of Abe' says it doesn't just suspect they were being targeted by the IRS, they say they were told they're being targeted by the IRS.
