Let me summarize the summary:
Elizabeth Hofacre (IRS - Cincinnati) pointed her finger up to Carter Hull a lawyer in the IRS Washington office. She was told that all Tea Party and Patriot cases got "kicked upstairs" while all others were to be processed as normal.
Carter Hull then testified that these cases would get reviewed by the IRS chief counsel William Wilkins, one of only two political appointees in the IRS. He then sat on them through the 2012 election cycle.
Ronald Shoemaker (Carter Hulls supervisor), " told investigators he didn't find that kind of question unreasonable, but he found the counsel's office to be "not very forthcoming": "We discussed it to some extent and they indicated that they wanted more development of possible political activity or political intervention right before the election period."
So this is a bombshell allegation on the order of Watergate, right? All the media outlets are scurrying to investigate and report this, right? Oh, contraire mon frere.... See screen prints below:
Even Fox News pays little attention:
