  • Obama's 'Katrina moment'

    Obama's 'Katrina moment'
    It has been a rough week or so for the Obama administration. From Benghazi to the tapping of reporters' phones to the IRS admitting that it targeted conservative groups for extra scrutiny, the press is in a frenzy, and many are questioning President...
  • Why should tea party groups be tax exempt?

    Why should tea party groups be tax exempt?
    Like most people, I was originally horrified by the reported targeting of tea party groups ("IRS head forced to go," May 16). I am now less horrified. It is reported that various tea party groups were requesting tax exempt status as a "social welfare"...

    Ehrlich's IRS column is even worse than usual
    While I enjoy the rants of former Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. in his weekly column, at some point I must say, "Enough is enough, Bob." As a former IRS employee and now a tax journalist, I have been following the IRS "scandal" closely and must dispute...
  • Biased press doesn't deserve protection

    Biased press doesn't deserve protection

    Rep. Cummings and the IRS: Washington politics to the core
    Baltimore Democrat Rep. Elijah Cummings says the investigation of the IRS has been concluded ("Cummings calls for end to IRS probe," June 9). Yet only last week Congressman Cummings was outraged because the people on his street were struggling while...
  • Rand Paul seeking plaintiffs, funds for suit against NSA

    Sen. Rand Paul is recruiting plaintiffs – and seeking donations – for a class-action lawsuit against the National Security Agency. “Dear Patriot,” the Kentucky Republican wrote Thursday in an e-mail to supporters. “I’...
  • Why the IRS scandal is worse than the others

    Why the IRS scandal is worse than the others
    Happy Father's Day … In over two decades in politics, my least favorite political type was the unabashed "hot dog," that media-seeking missile who would happily sell his grandmother for a 30-second hit on the evening news. The most dangerous...
  • IRS failure starts with tax code

    IRS failure starts with tax code
    I must admit I don't feel terribly sorry for the tea party folks and their difficulties with the Internal Revenue Service ("New charges against the IRS," June 5). The problem isn't with the IRS, which may have been guilty of sloppy workmanship, but with...
