The IRS Loses to True The Vote

The IRS was used – under the Obama Administration – to target conservative groups. True the Vote Wins Stunning Court Ruling Against IRS in Lois Lerner Scandal.

The IRS was sued by True The Vote for discrimination based on their political viewpoint. (They weren’t crazy liberals, the folks running the IRS couldn’t stand that.)

The judge awarded True The Vote an enhanced attorneys’ fees payment from the IRS.

Judge Walton also ruled that True the Vote is entitled to a “bad faith enhancement” to its requested attorney’s fees. Judge Walton’s opinion held there is “clear and convincing evidence necessary for a finding of bad faith on the part of [the IRS]” in their discrimination against True the Vote. While the exact amount to be awarded is still pending, True the Vote’s application under the Equal Access to Justice Act requested the recovery of $1.9 million in attorneys’ fees.

“This ruling is a victory for all Americans,” says Engelbrecht. “Government cannot be allowed to run roughshod over the Constitutional rights of American citizens.”

The other interesting thing is that there is absolutely NO MENTION of this story in the Mainstream American Media. Media bias? What media bias?
