PETA: IRS Deploys Totalitarian Tactics at Behest of Members of Congress

Complains of politically motivated audits ranging from 1990 to 2009


Add to the list of IRS targets: People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.

PETA said it's been targeted, too. Politico reported that Jeffrey Kerr, the general counsel for the animal rights group, sent a letter on Thursday to the Treasury Department alleging that PETA was unfairly audited on three separate occasions: Between 1990 and 1992, from 2003 to 2005 and in 2009.

  1. Anybody want to help grill a few hundred hot dogs across the street from PETA’s national HQ later this year?

  2. Seems unlikely, that is three audits by three administrations, all before 2010-2011 when the IRS reportedly started denying/delaying Tea Party applications.

    I’m not saying they weren’t targeted, but if they were its a separate instance of IRS targeting.

  3. Hey any PETA member: Have you ever entered a biker bar and poured paint on anyone wearing leather?



    Anyone there?
