Director of IRS Tax-Exempt Determinations Office is Obama Donor
National Review ^ | May 15, 2013 | By Eliana Johnson

Posted on 05/15/2013 8:29:02 PM PDT by Jim Robinson

The director of the Office of Rulings and Agreements, which oversees the determinatons of tax-exempt organizations, is a donor to Barack Obama. Holly Paz donated $2,000 to Obama’s 2008 campaign, according to Open Secrets, which maintains a database of individual political donations.

An inspector general’s report released yesterday concluded that the IRS improperly targeted Tea Party and other conservative groups for undue scrutiny, and Paz heads the office in which the wrongdoing is said to have occurred. National Review Online reported earlier today that agency officials are currently copying the hard drives of every employee on Paz’s watch. That data will be made available to investigators working on a second IG investigation focusing on the potential criminal activity individual agency employees.

The House Oversight Committe is requesting that Paz and four other employees be made available for transcribed interviews starting next week.

Data from the Center for Responsive Politics indicate that Paz’s donations are consistent with broader trends at the IRS, where agency employees donated overwhelming to President Obama in both the 2012 and 2008 presiential Elections.

0bamaCare’s reliance on the IRS to monitor and implement over 30 programs just went down the loo.

Unless something is done (which nothing will be) to even get mad is a waste of time. :(

"Data from the Center for Responsive Politics indicate that Paz’s donations are consistent with broader trends at the IRS, where agency employees donated overwhelming to President Obama in both the 2012 and 2008 presidential Elections."

Thus showing once again that the democrats really are the party of big government.

Doesn’t mean a thing.

Now if Holly donated to Bush, well THEN it would be a scandal...

"agency officials are currently copying the hard drives of every employee on Paz’s watch. That data will be made available to investigators working on a second IG investigation focusing on the potential criminal activity individual agency employees."

Sounds like the bus's tires are going to get a mass workout. Of course I suspect that this might be a case where upper Obama officials approved in principle, but once people got caught they reverted to "disavowing all knowledge. You're on your own." (But thanks anyway)

This is from the IRS speakers bureau - Looks like the government still has enough money after sequester to fund a website listing everybody who is “authorized” to speak for the government. Can't do their job, but they can get their names on the web.

A very young Caucasian redhead apparently. See her photo at

I believe that’s a pretty old photo. She got her law degree and then worked in private practice for 8 years, no indication how long she’s worked for the IRS.
