    <B>IRS official Lerner speedily approved exemption for Obama brother’s ‘charity’</B>

    Lois Lerner, the senior IRS official at the center of the decision to target tea party groups for burdensome tax scrutiny, signed paperwork granting tax-exempt status to the Barack H. Obama Foundation, a shady charity headed by the president’s half-brother that operated illegally for years.

    According to the organization’s filings, Lerner approved the foundation’s tax status within a month of filing, an unprecedented timeline that stands in stark contrast to conservative organizations that have been waiting for more than three years, in some cases, for approval.

    Lerner also appears to have broken with the norms of tax-exemption approval by granting retroactive tax-exempt status to Malik Obama’s organization.

    Its president and founder, Abon’go “Roy’ Malik Obama, is Barack Obama’s half-brother and was the best man at his wedding, but he has a checkered past. In addition to running his charity, Malik Obama ran unsuccessfully to be the governor of Siaya County in Kenya. He was accused of being a wife beater and seducing the newest of his twelve wives while she was a 17-year-old school girl.

  2. This Lerner woman better have enough money to hire a good attorney, Brendan Sullivan maybe. She's going to need one. She is being set up as the fall person for this.

    She doesn't have much time to pin the blame on someone higher up.

    Also, I read this morning that liberal political non-profits were approved in an average of 9 months by the IRS while conservative political non-profits took an average of 27 months with much more information required.

    You really should quit doing that. You could catch a disease or something.

    I think Max, myself and perhaps Captain O and Bud should just start re-quoting everyone ricter has on ignore. One of two things will occur - he'll either remove them from his list or put us on it. If it's the former, he won't be able to hide behind his anonymity, and if it's the latter, he'll be forced to converse with himself, and only in threads RCG or Spike create.
