Outgoing Michigan Senator Carl Levin had a hand in the IRS troubles related to conservative groups.
Levin used his weight to ask the IRS to give special attention to groups that were somewhat political:
"Levin's list contained nine conservative groups, including Club for Growth, Americans for Tax Reform, and Americans for Prosperity. It also included two liberal groups and one centrist group.Way to champion free speech brother Carl!
Thank God this clown is moving along. However, what about his protege, Gary Peters? Congressman Peters, who had lately been commenting on the actions of the IRS,
"For the IRS to wildly misuse its authority and target people or groups on ideological grounds goes against the core of our democracy and sets a dangerous precedent,"sure could have said something sooner, one might think. It sure would of been nice if he had spoke up when this was first being reported on.
Nope. Peters was standing with Obama and the Dem Senators like Levin when his reelection was years away, but now he's just hoping to resonate with some voters back home. Just another election year conversion of convenience.
Way to be a real advocate for free speech, Gary.
When Levin is gone, does anyone think a SENATOR Peters would be any less abusive?
