Letter: Blame Bush
Re: ‘IRS said it was wrong’ (Metro, May 21)
The IRS was doing its job in scrutinizing these nonprofits, especially ones claiming a 501(c)(4) exemption. Such groups are specifically forbidden from electioneering, and let’s face it, conservatives these days do little else. The fact that it caused enough squealing to prompt an unnecessary apology is truly unfortunate. As for the original question: If we’re comfortable with a hyper-politicized government, we can thank the eight god-awful years of the Bush Administration and its incompetent partisanship for that.
