IRS political targeting alleged in multiple cities

(CNN) - While the Internal Revenue Service has admitted that members of its Cincinnati office engaged in political targeting of some conservative groups, documents suggest at least three other offices did the same.

Letters provided to CNN show IRS officials in Washington and California contacted conservative groups to demand more information before approving the groups' requests for tax-exempt status.

    i can hardly wait until the republicans control the federal government and set the irs loose on all of the liberal and progressive organizations. all the environmental zealots, george soros, all the hollywood elite, the unions... be very careful what you advocate for and defend libtards. remember what is good for the goose is good for the gander.

    Emerge Maine, Emerge Nevada and Emerge Massachusetts were denied tax exempt status. They are groups involved in training Democratic women candidates. Someone please explain how the conservatives were "targeted". Another
    phony ginned up controversy.
