The Washington Times reports that the IRS is up to its old tricks again. Not content to delay, deny and deprive conservative organizations of timely tax-exempt status, they have been caught once again "with their hands in the cookie jar," providing extra scrutiny to a member of the loyal opposition. According to the Times:

"Just months after he gave a speech earlier this year that challenged America’s leadership in President Obama’s presence, Dr. Ben Carson was targeted by IRS agents who requested to review his real estate holdings and then conducted a full audit without finding any wrongdoing.

“I guess it could be a coincidence, but I never had been audited before and never really had any encounters with the IRS,” Dr. Carson said in an interview Thursday with The Washington Times. “But it certainly would make one suspicious because we know now the IRS has been used for political purposes and therefore actions like this come under suspicion.”

Dr. Carson told The Times that IRS agents contacted him in June — less than four months after the speech — and requested to review his real estate holdings. After finding nothing that concerned them, the agents then informed him they were conducting a full audit of his finances, and then asked to go back an additional year to review his records, he said.

They finally ended the review in August after finding no problems, Dr. Carson said.

“They told me everything was in good standing and left,” he said."

Asked whether he thought the audit was a retaliation for his speech, Dr. Carson quipped: “I guess I’m surprised it took them that long.”

He said the more serious issue is that the IRS has been politicized — “something that should never have happened” — and that leaves all of its activities open to suspicion."

It's no surprise obama eats his own, And for anyone to call this a "randam" audit, I don't think so...

Chief, this is what we get for electing someone that wasn’t even qualified to be President. His minions are emboldened to continue this type of corruption towards conservatives to keep them quiet and in the shadows. Stay tuned for Run Ben Run part two.

Dr. Carson needs to run but I fear that he might choose otherwise.

I don't know if we can survive.

Almost daily I encounter someone who is able bodied but never the less they are drawing a disability payment of some sort usually derived from a trumped up claim of bad back or some other contrived excuse.
