How the IRS undermined America as a nation of laws

Imagine that the Trump administration was singling out left-wing groups for discrimination, repression or punishment through both the revenue and justice system.
I think we can all guess what the reaction would be: foaming outrage across the media, furious editorials and op-eds, dissection of Trump’s vicious sectarian and vindictive personality and the charge that the US had turned into a fascist state.
Evidence has now surfaced confirming long-held claims that the Obama administration targeted conservative groups in just this way, and then tried to cover it up. Yet the media reaction has been muted, with coverage consisting mostly of brief news stories.
Of course: according to most of the media,Trump can do no right and the left can do no wrong. Well, now that story is beginning to turn on its head.
The Internal Revenue Service scandal erupted in 2013 with claims that the IRS was singling out Tea-Party and other conservative groups for discriminatory and punitive treatment in accordance with the animus of the Obama administration against its political opponents.

Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
