A reality check on the IRS scandal

Since the news broke last week, the size and scope of the IRS investigations has gotten bigger. At least 471 groups have come forward with proof that they were targeted with "non-standard" paperwork, liberal organization ProPublica has revealed that they were given confidential files on "Tea Party" groups, at least 3 offices have been positively identified as working together on the anti-TP project, and today it was revealed that the administration was made aware of this scandal in JUNE, 2012. Now, imagine that this was a Republican administration. If you defend this kind of systematic, systemic and sinister abuse of government power then you cannot be surprised or outraged when the "Other Side" uses the same tactics to target progressive groups. Unless this scandal is fully investigated, and all involved- up to the executive level- are tried, convicted and imprisoned for gross abuse of power, then it will happen again.
