Breitbart News Targeted by the IRS

September 9, 2014

Of course.

Everyone at Breitbart should just claim that they lost all of their emails.

I’m surprised it took this long for the IRS to target them…

Breitbart News says IRS targeted company for audit

The company that runs the conservative Breitbart.com news site says the IRS has selected the network for an audit, in a move company executives suggest is politically motivated.

Breitbart News Network, a California-based company which runs several conservative websites, says the IRS recently audited its 2012 financial information.

“The Obama administration’s timing on this is exquisite, but try as they might through various methods to silence us, we will only get more emboldened,” Stephen K. Bannon, executive chairman of Breitbart News Network, said in a written statement.

The audit comes as the agency faces sustained complaints that it targeted conservative groups for extra scrutiny as they sought nonprofit status, before the agency ended the practice last year.

It’s too bad Andrew Breitbart is no longer with us. I’d love to hear what he’d have to say about this.

    Or they could say it was all because of a rogue video on YouTube.
