tyler, tx — The media is so busy trying to kill Mitt Romney, here's one they missed.
Come to find out, there is evidence the Department of Justice is in cahoots with left-wing, non-profit group
The reason why? Media Matters has been allegedly working to make sure the DOJ gets positive spin for all the messes they've been involved in like "Fast and Furious."
But, this is just not hearsay. There are emails obtained by a Freedom Of Information Act. There are emails from Media Matters between the liberal messaging group's employees and a top DOJ spokeswoman.
Texas Republican Rep. Blake Farenthold said Tuesday that he expects the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform to investigate collusion.
Farenthold, the first member of Congress to demand Attorney General Eric Holder's resignation over Operation Fast and Furious, said he thinks the committee should examined Media Matters' tax-exempt status. That status allows the group's donors to claim an income tax deduction for their contributions, and also permits Media Matters to pay no federal tax on its income.
Tax exemption under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, which Media Matters enjoys, is typically reserved for organizations that don't engage in excessive partisan politicking.
Of course the DOJ hasn't gotten around to investigating Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebilious for violating the Hatch Act. Since she's a cabinet member, she's not supposed to be politicking.
I'm sure that's in Eric Holders inbox for first thing Thursday morning.
That's my point of view, what's yours?
