Bachmann: Obama Admin Released IRS Bombshell to Distract From Benghazi Debacle
Bob Unruh reports at WND:
The Internal Revenue Service under the Obama administration -- described by Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., as the "most feared government agency" -- admitted Friday it targeted conservative and tea-party groups during last year’s election because of their politics.
Bachmann, a former tax attorney, told WND in an interview the IRS admission means the credibility of the 2012 election is in doubt.
Americans, she said, should be wondering whether Obamacare, which is to be enforced by the IRS, will target conservative voices opposed to President Obama with delays or denials of medical care.
But why would an administration ever confess to such a flagrant misuse of politics and power?
Bachmann, who chairs the House Tea Party caucus, said it’s the Benghazi scandal.
"I was in that Benghazi hearing,” Bachmann told WND. "I think the Obama administration is desperate to spin Benghazi, and they can’t. I think they saved this story up for a day like today so that conservatives would focus on this admission."
