During last night’s episode of The Colbert Report, Stephen Colbert took the opportunity to mock Darrell Issa and the Tea Party for making such a big deal out of what has now been proven is an IRS Tea Party non-scandal. Colbert quipped:
On Tuesday, Congressman Elijah Cummings released the full transcript to the press and it proved conclusively that Issa was right…to not want the transcripts released.
Not only did the decision to start targeting groups this way come from a mid-level “conservative republican” employee in Cincinnati, it was revealed yesterday that the IRS was scrutinizing liberal groups applying for 501(c) status too.
