Apparently there really are more than four or five conservatives in Hollywood. The New York Times estimates there might be as many as 1,500 members of “Friends of Abe,” a group of right-leaning members of the entertainment industry. The group is now being eyed by the IRS in its application for 501(c)(3) nonprofit status.
IRS targeting of conservatives continues. This time it’s Friends of Abe — comprised of conservatives in Hollywood: http://t.co/YnqdxgK4Hk

The New York Times writes that “federal tax authorities presented the group with a 10-point request for detailed information about its meetings with politicians like Paul D. Ryan, Thaddeus McCotter and Herman Cain” as well as a request for “enhanced access to the group’s security-protected website, which would have revealed member names.”
@chuckwoolery Conservatives in that world are being treated like the commies in the fifties!

The group’s application for tax-exempt status reportedly has been under review by the IRS for roughly two years.
