US Senators Asked IRS to Audit Political Foes
The Chicago Way twists government regulations to crush your political opponents. It is the biased media who acts as co-conspirator and minimizes the resulting scandal. The perpetrator remains safely “alleged” until the election is long over and the courts finally impose a minor fine. Now we see the Chicago Way on the national stage as US Senators asked the IRS to audit their political opponents, while at the same time ignoring the partisan political organizations who helped elect these same Senators. Democrat Senators Carl Levin, Max Baucus, Charles E. Schumer, Michael Bennet, Sheldon Whitehouse, Jeff Merkley, Tom Udall, Jeanne Shaheen and Al Franken wrote such letters to the IRS. They asked that organizations promoting smaller government be audited and their tax status be examined by the IRS. They targeted pro-life organizations before the 2012 election.

The EPA, Labor Department and Department of Justice are powerful political weapons. I bet Senators made similar communications targeting companies who failed to make requested political contributions. That is the Chicago Way to wield power.
And the partisan media ignores the scandal until the election is over.
It is the Chicago Way, so have your “donations” ready.
