IRS Gave Homosexualists Private Info of Christians

The Internal Revenue Service leaked confidential personal data of donors of the National Organization for Marriage. That data was then published by the Human Rights Campaign (the nation's largest homosexual advocacy organization) in searchable form on the Internet, thus allowing homosexualists to target pro-marriage Christians for harassment, assault, and terrorist attacks.
“There is little question that one or more employees at the IRS stole our confidential tax return and leaked it to our political enemies, in violation of federal law.”
-- Brian Brown, President, National Organization for Marriage

The Human Rights Campaign published NOM's 990 tax form in 2012 on a website called “NOM Exposed,” revealing the identities of major donors, in March. Although 990s are public, the sections revealing major donors are not. In a separate incident, the IRS also released [Karl Rove's] conservative outside group Crossroads GPS's nonprofit status application to ProPublica.

ProPublica on Monday reported that the same IRS division that targeted conservative groups for special scrutiny during the 2012 election cycle provided the investigative-reporting organization with confidential applications for tax-exempt status.

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) leaked confidential materials submitted by some conservative groups to investigative journalists at ProPublica, the group reported on Tuesday.

“In response to a request for the applications for 67 different nonprofits last November, the Cincinnati office of the IRS sent ProPublica applications or documentation for 31 groups,” ProPublica reports. “Nine of those applications had not yet been approved—meaning they were not supposed to be made public.”

ProPublica says it followed up with the IRS at the time to find out why it had been provided the confidential materials. The IRS responded by saying it would be illegal for ProPublica to publish the documents.

ProPublica published the materials but redacted some financial information.

Critics had long questioned how ProPublica got that information. . . .

NOM claimed that someone from the IRS fed the liberal Human Rights Campaign documents listing its 2008 contributors. On that list was a $10,000 donation from Romney’s political action committee. The Human Rights Campaign then published the documents online, saying it had uncovered one of the group’s “top secret donors,” and accused Romney of attacking lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equality.

The donation came as NOM and other conservative groups were fighting for the Proposition 8 measure banning gay marriage in California.

Conservative think tank The Heritage Foundation said they, too, were targets of the IRS years ago.

From "Franklin Graham: IRS targeted us, too" by Reid J. Epstein, Politico 5/14/13

With the IRS admitting it gave extra scrutiny to conservative political organizations, Graham says he now believes that the review was part of an Obama administration effort of “targeting and attempting to intimidate us.”

The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association urging of voters to back “candidates who base their decisions on biblical principles and support the nation of Israel” during last year’s presidential race was the reason why IRS agents visited the North Carolina offices of both Graham groups, the letter [from Graham to President Obama] accuses.

The Graham organizations kept their federal income tax exemptions after the audit — but were not told they’d be able to until after the November election, he wrote.

The IRS review . . . followed the Billy Graham ministry publishing newspaper ads in North Carolina backing a state constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage.
