In another twist in the IRS targeting political opponents story, a reporter, Larry Conners, reports being harassed by the IRS. Weasel Zippers has more…

St. Louis Reporter Larry Conners revealed via Facebook yesterday that he has been “hammered” by the IRS since his much-discussed interview with President Obama. Conners, a veteran reporter, asked tough, but fair question during the interview which was slammed by progressives in media. Conners says:
Shortly after I did my April 2012 interview with President Obama, my wife, friends and some viewers suggested that I might need to watch out for the IRS.
I don’t accept “conspiracy theories”, but I do know that almost immediately after the interview, the IRS started hammering me.
At the time, I dismissed the “co-incidence”, but now, I have concerns … after revelations about the IRS targeting various groups and their members.
Originally, the IRS apologized for red-flagging conservative groups and their members if they had “Tea Party” or “patriot” in their name.
Today, there are allegations that the IRS focused on various groups and/or individuals questioning or criticizing government spending, taxes, debt or how the government is run … any involved in limiting/expanding government, educating on the constitution and bill of rights, or social economic reform/movement.
Yes, this was all called a “conspiracy theory.’ But now, with evidence coming out that this was a rather widespread effort, we are looking a bit smarter, aren’t we? Frankly, I’d much rather be wrong. I’d love to trust my government. I’d love to either stop blogging, or write posts about the next “hot app,” the latest fast car, or maybe even the next movie I want to see. However, the government keeps doing things to earn my suspicion and scorn. I don’t see that changing any time soon.
