The current chief counsel of the IRS, William Wilkins, helped a church connected to B. Hussein Obama’s good buddy Rev. Jeremiah Wright get out of an IRS probe in 2008 while working as a private attorney.
Small world, ain’t it?
“Lawyers from Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr have won the dismissal of an IRS case against United Church of Christ, Sen. Barack Obama’s denomination,” The American Lawyer’s Zach Lowe wrote on May 22, 2008:
“The IRS initiated an investigation early this year after a speech by Obama at a 50th anniversary celebration of the church last June. It was a reference by Obama to his presidential candidacy in a talk otherwise focused on faith that caught the agency’s attention. Tax laws prohibit non-profits–including churches–from engaging in political speech or promoting candidates. The IRS can withdraw an organization’s tax-free status if the organization is found to violate the rule.”
Lowe noted that Obama had been a “member of Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago–a UCC congregation–for more than 20 years. The church has been in the headlines for several months now as the congregation lead by the controversial Reverend Jeremiah Wright.”
William Wilkins, then a WilmerHale law firm partner, said, “We were so interested in the case we offered to do it pro bono.”
……When Obama nominated Wilkins to be the IRS’s chief counsel on April 17, 2009, his White House cited Wilkins’ experience as an attorney on issues relating to tax-exempt status organization. “He has a broad tax practice that includes counseling nonprofit organizations, business entities, and investment funds on tax compliance, business transactions, and government investigations,” according to the White House release announcing Wilkins’ nomination.
For 20 years Obama sat in a pew at the United Church of Christ while Rev. Jeremiah Wright preached hate-filled, anti-Semitic, anti-white, Black Liberation Theology, and never heard a thing.
Under the Obama regime, you can “God Damn America”, be a racist demagogue, and spew unbelievably retarded statements like ‘America started the AIDS virus’, and 9/11 was “America’s chickens” “coming home to roost”, and you’ll have a crapload of concerned LeftProgs at your service.
The same leftwing toadies are now in charge at the IRS, so patriotic Tea Party and conservative groups never stood a chance of getting tax exempt status to support their First Amendment rights.
