Dr. Ben Carson received first IRS Audit after he spoke out against Obama
From CBS TV in Baltimore:
Whether it’s because he said it with the president sitting right there, the media fallout or coincidence, he was audited. The suggestion that the IRS uses its power to influence politics seems farfetched, but then we see IRS employees in a Star Trek spoof–part of a $4 million employee training conference.
“It was a difficult money trail to follow, but in the end we got it,” the spoof said. And then came the admission that group requests for tax exempt status were red flagged and sidelined for their politics.“It has to start with a recognition that the trust has been violated,” said Daniel Werfel in a congressional hearing.
In a statement to WJZ, Dr. Carson says:
“When you have a government agency involved in activities that are partisan in nature, it calls into question all of their actions. If they were auditing me in a situation where there was no question about their integrity, this would be ignored.” . . .
