Skip to comments.The Liberal Union Behind the IRS
Posted on 05/16/2013 4:46:52 AM PDT by RoosterRedux
Its about a union: the National Treasury Employees Union. The NTEU. A left-wing union representing 150,000 employees in 31 separate government agencies, including the IRS. A union that not only endorsed President Obama for election and re-election, but a union whose current president, Colleen Kelly, was a 14-year IRS agent and now is both union president and Obama administration appointee (of which more in a moment).
Its about 94% of NTEU union contributions going to Democrats in the Senate and House in 2012 candidates who campaigned as vociferous opponents of the Tea Party.
And the recently released report from the Treasury Inspector General? You will not find a single reference to the NTEU. Whose members are both player and referee in the exploding controversy over the IRS targeting of conservative groups.
Which raises the obvious question: how many NTEU members were involved in the writing of the Inspector Generals report?
Even more to the point, what contact what coordination has the Obama White House had with their allies in the NTEU leadership as both the White House and the NTEU race to get on top of a scandal that is rapidly engulfing both?
Did I mention that the NTEU has no comment on all of this? And that when President Obama went in front of cameras to make his statement on the IRS scandal he never once mentioned his very powerful union buddies that have the run of the IRS? Right down to the control of who gets a Blackberry? Literally.
Lets first see how the IRS/NTEU game with the Tea Party and conservatives is played, shall we?

This stinks of political coercion through the union thugs that backed Obama. The relationship between Obama, White House, IRS and thugs reeks. It stinks out loud. In itself it is an impeachable offense.
This is a scandal in itself! I had no idea about this and bet most conservatives didn’t as well.
God has given us several opportunities to set our country straight with the exposure of these democRAT scandals. The Republicans better put the pedal to the metal and use these golden opportunities to right some very evil wrongs.
Warning to Boehner and the GOP establishment: We’re watching!!!
With Steven Hayes’ excellent work on Benghazi to be followed up by this very detailed expose, the American Standard is shining at this point. Be it totally counter to Bill and Fred who are the poster children for elitist GOPe dogma.
It will be interesting to see how this revelation gets any additional talk and editing space.
FDR was entirely correct about one thing, unions have no place in civil service.
This article exposes something so mind-boggling as to cause one to wonder if the entire Obama government might fall.
make that American Spectator
A major scandal...we must shout it from the rooftops.
Public workers unions should all be outlawed, at every level.
This is really approaching pitchfork and torch time...
This kind of abuse of power cannot stand, and someone, preferably our elected representatives, need to do something about it.
I’m gonna email this story to Bret Baier.
BTTT - Jeffrey Lord, great article.
Man are we in trouble. End the IRS but end the NTEU even more. Leaking individual tax information is supposed to be a jailtime offense. Get them. Get them all.
This is breaking news and really should be treated as such.
They’re in everything gubmint...
Jim, you should see this article. Amazing that the IRS is actually controlled by a liberal, Obama-supporting union.
Just posted a link to my local Tea Party’s facebook page.
