New Hampshire Senator Jeanne Shaheen was personally involved with Lois Lerner and Obama’s appointee at the IRS, William J Wilkins. Wilkins visited the White House with Barack Obama and the very next day announced new harsher rules for conservative tax exempt groups. Shaheen was one of six democratic senators who conspired with the White House and IRS to prevent the Tea Party from being able to duplicate their success in the 2010 elections. Shaheen was obviously the point person in this effort for the democrats.
All correspondence that came from the IRS was routed through Shaheen. The IRS fought releasing the letters between Wilkins and Shaheen. A Super PAC had filed a FOIA (Freedom Of Information Act) request with the IRS. Finally, they were able to get them and we get to see how closely she was working with the IRS. They even threatened to force the PAC to take them to court.
“The IRS is aware of the current public interest in this issue,” IRS chief counsel William J. Wilkins, a White House visitor described by insiders as “The President’s Man at the IRS,” personally wrote in a hand-stamped memo to “Senator Shaheen” on official Department of the Treasury letterhead on April 25, 2012.
The memo, obtained by TheDC, briefed the Democratic senator about a coordinated IRS-Treasury Department plot to target political activity by nonprofit 501(c)(4) groups. The plot was operating out of Lois Lerner’s Tax Exempt Government Entities Division.
Here is a portion of that letter from Wilkins to Senator Shaheen:
“These regulations have been in place since 1959. We will consider proposed changes in this area as we work with Tax-Exempt and Government Entities and the Treasury Department’s Office of Tax Policy to identify tax issues that should be addressed” in designing new regulations and “guidance.”
“I hope this information is helpful. I am sending a similar response to your colleagues. If you have questions, please contact me or have your staff contact Cathy Barre at (202) 622-3720.”
The six senators wrote a letter to the IRS, looking to put barriers up that would prevent these groups from participating in the election process, as they had done in 2010 to much success. This was a democratic conspiracy to rob conservatives to their right of free speech and active participation in the election process and Shaheen was up to her eyeballs in that conspiracy.
Hopefully, the good people of New Hampshire will decide to retire Shaheen today.
