False claims get the people at the IRS on Washington, DC upset. Any sleight of hand by a political party asking for tax-exempt status sounds an alarm in the IRS chief ranks.
Rep. Darrel Issa (R-San Diego), after his party passed a bill in the House to give a last word against the legitimacy of using IRS authority to investigate the conservative Tea PArty's tax-exempt application, still remains determined to cancel open agreement on the service's political questions. San Diego's IRS watchdog does not accept any failures during government inquiries.
"We are committed to a thorough and fair investigation," he said. Liability for government wrongdoing, however, still depends on full discovery. The year long investigation into enforcement of PPACA and HCERA conducted by the Inspector General did not yield results that can spoil the agency's innocence. Just strong official words on unresolved appraisals on calimed systematic fault finding done to turn down an organization with sweeping political beliefs.
Rough grounds for putting the IRS to the question left enough commoption short of done to justify the 30 day review by a single official on the inevstigation into government law enforcement.
The Inspector General's work on the decision against an approval on tax-exempt status by senior IRS official at the tax-exempt organizations division, Lois G. Lerner, remains incomplete unless they missed nothing. Finding a defect in the work done by the Obama administration on his major reform laws keeps Issa on the spot, an oversight committee man who considers the work a first priority.
This is an On The Watch Take.
