President Obama told Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly that the recent
IRS targeting scandal had “not even a smidgen of corruption.” The denial-laden
interview on Sunday leaves the Thomas More Society shocked, as the President
adamantly rejected the suggestion that the IRS was abusing groups not in
concert with his administration. He claimed that IRS officials were confused
about how to implement laws governing tax-exempt groups. The Thomas More
Society, however, a national public interest law firm based in Chicago, was
heavily involved in providing Congress with evidence of specific wrongdoing on
the part of Lois Lerner—disgraced former IRS director of the exempt
organizations division—and her staff.
