Meet Carter Hull, the IRS Lawyer Who Oversaw the Targeting of Tea Party Groups

What a douche.

From the Daily Caller.

A Washington IRS attorney named Carter Hull closely oversaw the targeting of conservative nonprofit groups and suggested questions that IRS employees could ask of conservative and Tea Party groups applying for tax-exempt nonprofit status, according to interviews that two IRS employees gave with congressional investigators.

“I was essentially a front person, because I had no autonomy or no authority to act on applications without Carter Hull’s influence or input,” said Elizabeth Hofacre, an employee of the Cincinnati IRS office, according to a new report in the Wall Street Journal.Hofacre’s office, which oversaw tax-exempt applications, reportedly requested help from the agency’s Exempt Organizations Technical unit in Washington, D.C. in 2010 to

…… at least five different IRS offices in Cincinnati, Ohio; Baltimore, Maryland; Chicago, Illinois; Laguna Niguel and El Monte, California; improperly demanded extensive information from conservative groups applying for tax-exempt nonprofit status between 2010 and 2012. The IRS demanded copies of training materials distributed by conservative groups, as well as personal information on college interns and even the contents of a religious group’s prayers.

After being outed, he conveniently retired.

He should be subpoenaed for the next Congressional hearing on the IRS scandal.

    How much you want to bet that some Democrat slips this guy something that brings on a heart attack – people who can do the Democrats harm have a way of disappearing.
