Strictly By Coincidence, Former IRS Chief’s Wife Works for Left Wing Finance Reform Group

460xThis is only ‘Wow, what a coincidence!’ Number 1,247 since Obama was sworn in to office. So. Do. Not. Get. Excited.

Breitbart via Drudge:

On Friday, reports broke that Former IRS chief Doug Shulman’s wife works with a liberal lobbying group, Public Campaign, where she is the senior program advisor. Public Campaign is an “organization dedicated to sweeping campaign reform that aims to dramatically reduce the role of big special interest money in American politics.”

The goal of Public Campaign is to target political groups like the conservative non-profits at issue in the IRS scandal. The Campaign says it “is laying the foundation for reform by working with a broad range of organizations, including local community groups, around the country that are fighting for change and national organizations whose members are not fairly represented under the current campaign finance system.”

CEO of Public Campaign Nick Nyhart has offered words of support for the IRS’ targeting: “There are legitimate questions to be asked about political groups that are hiding behind a 501(c)4 status. It’s unfortunate a few bad apples at the IRS will make it harder for those questions to be asked without claims of bias.”

Public Campaign gets its cash from labor unions like AFL-CIO, AFSCME, SEIU, and Move On. [More]

I can hear Jim Carney now. BUSH APPOINTED HIM! Which is true, if a little like saying Fast & Furious and AP-Rosen are Ronald Reagan’s fault because he appointed Eric Holder to the bench in the 1980s.

Let’s be clear. There are all kinds of perfectly innocent reasons for an above-reproach IRS commissioner with a radical left wife to visit the White House 157 times: There are, like, Easter egg rolls, and…  uh, I forget, but cool stuff.

Sheesh! A few IRS agents were probably playing a little practical joke, and everyone gets excited. What everyone is missing is that the IRS is a fun place to work.

You know the whole real problem here? Republicans have NO sense of humor anymore. Since Lincoln Chaffe and everybody sane left … Which is the real story.
