What if you decide to donate money to Mitt Romney. You want change in the Oval Office, so you engage in your democratic right to send a check.
What if several days later, President Barack Obama, the most powerful man on the planet, singles you out by name. His campaign brands you a Romney donor, shames you for "betting against America," and accuses you of having a "less-than-reputable" record. The message from the man who controls the Justice Department (which can indict you), the SEC (which can fine you), and the IRS (which can audit you), is clear: You made a mistake donating that money.
Would you be worried?
This past week, one of his campaign websites posted an item entitled "Behind the curtain: A brief history of Romney's donors." In the post, the Obama campaign named and shamed eight private citizens who had donated to his opponent. Describing the givers as all having "less-than-reputable records," the post went on to make the extraordinary accusations that "quite a few" have also been "on the wrong side of the law" and profiting at "the expense of so many Americans."
Here’s the ABC News link with the story:
THE IRS has also been accused of leaking the TAX RECORDS of an anti-gay-marriage organization, showing that Romney was a contributor. The information was posted on a PRO-GAY marriage website but has since been taken down.
ARE THEY USING THE IRS!!!!!???? This is wrong on so many levels!
