IRS gives free pass to famous Obama leftist group

But strips tax-exempt status from small conservative nonprofit

WASHINGTON — A stunning example of IRS political activity and liberal bias is sitting in plain view for all the world to see, following an investigation by WND.

The IRS has just stripped a small, obscure, conservative nonprofit of its tax-exempt status for two alleged rule violations a decade ago, while taking a hands-off approach to a famous leftist website that’s well-financed by billionaire George Soros and other liberals and has engaged in more egregious practices for years, and on a much vaster scale.

On Monday, USA Today published an IRS document confirming that in February the IRS revoked the tax-exempt status for the Patrick Henry Center for Individual Liberty, a small, conservative group founded in 1997 and based in Manassas, Va. The group had operated for years as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. The center advertises itself as “committed to fostering, promoting, and advocating the restoration of Liberty as the primary object of American society.”

To make its case against Patrick Henry, the IRS had to go as far back as 10 years ago to find a pair of items it considered unacceptable political activity by the nonprofit.

The IRS cited a 2004 column by the group’s president, former FBI agent Gary Aldrich, that was critical of John Kerry and a 2005 fundraising letter that criticized Hillary Clinton.

The liberal behemoth Media Matters is also a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization. It claims on its website to be a “progressive research and information center dedicated to comprehensively monitoring, analyzing, and correcting conservative misinformation in the U.S. media.”

Media Matters operates freely as a tax-exempt organization without any apparent interference from the IRS, while its website has literally thousands of highly partisan political articles on public display, virtually all of them advocating extremely liberal positions.

The IRS said it revoked Patrick Henry’s tax-exempt status because it “has shown a pattern of deliberate and consistent intervention in political campaigns” and made “repeated statements supporting or opposing various candidates by expressing its opinion of the respective candidate’s character and qualifications.”

However, even a cursory review reveals that Media Matters has for years published countless articles that blatantly attempt “intervention in political campaigns” and support or oppose candidates.

WND was able to quickly and easily demonstrate the organization’s political advocacy by merely searching the Media Matters website for the word “Romney” from Oct. 6, 2012, to Nov. 6, 2012, a period comprising just the one month before the 2012 presidential election.

WND found Media Matters had published 238 articles containing the word “Romney” in just that month, virtually all of them either supporting the incumbent, President Obama, or opposing the challenger, GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney.
