Norquist: Obama ‘kneecapped’ conservatives with IRS

04.07.15 12:59 PM

The Obama administration ordered the Internal Revenue Service to attack Tea Party groups in order to slow the small government movement’s growth and secure the White House for Obama in 2012, according to a new book out from anti-tax crusader Grover Grover Norquist.

In “End the IRS Before It Ends Us: How to Restore a Low Tax, High Growth, Wealthy America,” Norquist charges that the IRS targeting scandal began when Obama’s camp ordered former IRS executive Lois Lerner to “do something” to slow conservative fundraising following the Supreme Court Citizens United decision.

“Had the Tea Party repeated and built on their activism of 2009 and 2010 in 2011 and 2012, Obama would have lost the election. What happened to the Tea Party boost? It didn’t grow from 2010. It appeared to weaken,” the anti-tax advocate writes, adding that the Tea Party was “pushed” down the stairs by the Obama administration.

Norquist cites a 2010 Lerner speech at Duke University as evidence that the IRS was directed to find a way to weaken conservatives, quoting: “The Federal Election Commission can’t do anything about it. They want the IRS to fix the problem. The IRS laws are not set up to fix the problem … so everyone is screaming at us right now: fix it now before the election.”

Norquist contends the IRS actions were an act of political “kneecapping.”

“Eighteen years earlier, Tonya Harding was afraid she would lose her place at the Olympic skating competition to Nancy Kerrigan. Her ex-husband worked with her bodyguard to hire Shane Stant, who hit Karrigan in the knee to handicap her in the skating competition. Tonya didn’t hit Nancy Kerrigan, Shane Stant did,” Norquist writes.

“In our modern kneecapping, President Obama was Tonya Harding. The American people who had voted strongly in 2010 and threatened the president’s chances of winning in 2010 were Nancy Kerrigan. The IRS and Lois Lerner played Mr. Stant,” he continues.
