Of Course They Used The IRS To Attack Their Political Opponents

Because the winner of the election gets $3.5T and control of the drones.
Dig this (possibly behind the WSJ paywall).
The Internal Revenue Service's scrutiny of conservative groups went beyond those with "tea party" or "patriot" in their names—as the agency admitted Friday—to also include ones worried about government spending, debt or taxes, and even ones that lobbied to "make America a better place to live," according to new details of a government probe. 
The investigation also revealed that a high-ranking IRS official knew as early as mid-2011 that conservative groups were being inappropriately targeted—nearly a year before then-IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman told a congressional committee the agency wasn't targeting conservative groups.
 As the government grows, the risks associated with losing elections grow apace.

IRS attacks have been launched at least since the Clinton Era and probably loooong before then. There is nothing new under the sun.
