    New evidence suggests "progressive" was used like " tea party" to help target applications.

    The Internal Revenue Service’s inspector general said Thursday that he was expanding his investigation of I.R.S. treatment of political groups that applied for tax-exempt status to see if liberal groups were treated the same way as conservative ones. Under attack from Democrats over his earlier inquiries, the inspector general, Russell George, said there was new evidence to study in the controversy about the handling of tax-exempt applications from Tea Party and other groups. The new evidence suggests that the I.R.S. used not only conservative-sounding keywords to select certain applications for extra scrutiny, but also liberal-sounding words like “progressive.”

    And what happens when they determine liberal groups were targeted? Exoneration, of course! They screwed everybody equally.
