Here is my latest op-ed on the IRS "scandal."
Here are the first two paragraphs:
Public outcry regarding the Internal Revenue Service’s apparent
targeting of conservative groups has been swift but largely misguided.
The so-called “IRS scandal” essentially boils down the following:
conservative groups that applied for 501(c)4 status were subject to more
rigorous vetting by IRS employees than liberal groups.
At first blush this is no doubt problematic. The IRS, a vitally
important government agency, must function in a neutral and non-partisan
manner. However, the true scandal behind the IRS’s actions stretches
far beyond this incident targeting conservative groups.
