THE LIE-RS SCANDAL: DEEPER BY THE DAY

Ken Berwitz

This is for anyone who thinks, even for a split second, that the Lie-RS scandal is getting anything but worse.

Excerpted from Charles C. Johnson's blog at dailycaller.com:

The "charity" run by President Barack Obama's half-brother that was fast-tracked for IRS tax-exempt status is based at a Virginia UPS store, according to its website.

The organization's IRS filings list another Virginia address that is actually a drug rehab center where the foundation does not appear ever to have been based.

The Barack H. Obama Foundation is run by Abon'go "Roy" Malik Obama, the half-brother of Barack Obama.

As first reported by The Daily Caller, the foundation was speedily approved for IRS exemption by Lois Lerner, the IRS senior official at the center of the targeting of conservative organizations that have waited over two years to receive tax exempt status. (RELATED: IRS official Lerner speedily approved exemption for Obama brother’s 'charity')

The charity was even given retroactive tax-exempt status despite never having bothered to apply for it. And its history of soliciting donations before receiving tax-exempt status was apparently overlooked.

How deep does this scandal go?  The answer seems to be indeterminate - there is no bottom here.

Will Mr. Obama now trot out another phony flak like Dan Pfeiffer to tell us this was a mistake?  A coincidence?  That President Obama didn't have a thing to do with it/didn't know a thing about it? 

Will Jay Carney serve up another hot steamy load of BS that nobody in the entire press corps believes for a minute?

This is ugly beyond belief.  Is it ugly enough to bring Barack Obama down?

Stay tuned.

At "Hopelessly Partisan" we discuss all issues, big and small. Such as:

-Which scandal is worse: the VA mess, or the "deal" that sent five terrorists back into action in return for a deserter?

-Is susan rice trying to set the new world record for lying to our faces (the competition - from her boss - is fierce)?

-How many people really signed up for ObamaCare - and do Democrats really think they can run on it?

-Can the Obama administration - and especially Hillary Clinton - escape accountability for Benghazi?

-When will President Obama stop pretending he cares about the constitution and just declare himself king?

Right down to:

-Based on the decisions he has made since becoming CNN's President, is Jeff Zucker secretly working for Fox News Channel?

-What is causing viewership of MSNBC's prime time shows, poor to begin with, to drop even further?

-Is there a girl 5 - 10 years of age who cannot belt out a complete rendition of "Let It Go"?

In here, nothing is sacred and nothing is out of bounds.

So settle back, preferably after laughing your way through a copy of "The Hopelessly Partisan Guide To American Politics", and let the battle begin. In this blog, your opinion counts every bit as much as anyone else's, maybe even more.

And to show that my willingness to provide all sides of the issues is sincere, here are links to a variety of web sites, from the left, the middle (more or less) and the right. Read them and either smile in agreement or gnash your teeth in anger!!
