We already knew that former IRS commissioner Doug Shulman’s wife, Susan L. Anderson, worked for a liberal activist group, Public Campaign.
And we briefly mentioned that at one point she had some kind of connection to the Occupy Wall Street movement:
We didn’t know until now, however, that she also worked for Obama For America (see tweet above).
Nor did we know that she talked smack about Karl Rove’s group, American Crossroads.
Yes, that’s the same American Crossroads whose confidential documents were leaked by the IRS to ProPublica.
Anderson’s tweets reveal antipathy toward the Tea Party, the Republican Party, the NRA, Grover Norquist, and “Angry Old Rich Guys” — in other words, most conservatives in America:
Bcause they were armed: in re violence @ MI union protest AFP Phillips says "we never in the tea party saw anything like a physical assault"—

Of course, she has the right to express her opinion. And there’s no evidence that Anderson improperly influenced her husband, Shulman, who was a George W. Bush appointee.
But suffice to say, as more and more information flows, we at Twitchy Team greet every new twist and turn in the IRS scandalabra with our #shockedfaces on.
We changed the headline of this article. The original version’s headline was “Tweets by former IRS chief’s wife reveal liberal political views.” We decided that this underplayed the radicalism of Anderson’s views.
