Report: IRS flagged groups involved in ‘educating on the Constitution and Bill of Rights’

As Twitchy reported, the IRS’ apology for targeting conservative groups like the Tea Party Patriots for aggressive investigation just happened to emerge only days before an inspector general’s report is expected to be released, giving the results of a year-long investigation into the agency.

Portions of a draft of that report issued to Congressional aides have made it into the hands of the Associated Press and suggest an even bigger scandal. Not only were words like “tea party” and “patriot” flagged — the AP reports that agents were directed to flag groups “involved in limiting/expanding Government” and “educating on the Constitution and Bill of Rights.” That leaves public schools out, but really?

Obama? No, but somebody’s going under the bus for this one.
