Strassel: The IRS Scandal Started at the Top
In The Wall Street Journal, Potomac Watch columnist Kimberley Strassel writes that the bureaucrats at the Internal Revenue Service did exactly what the president said was the right and honorable thing to do.
“The Obama call for scrutiny wasn’t a mistake; it was the president’s strategy—one pursued throughout 2012. The way to limit Romney money was to intimidate donors from giving. Donate, and the president would at best tie you to Big Oil or Wall Street, at worst put your name in bold, and flag you as “less than reputable” to everyone who worked for him: the IRS, the SEC, the Justice Department. The president didn’t need a telephone; he had a megaphone.”
