In May of 2011, Kevin Kookogey, founder of Linchpins of Liberty…A conservative education group in Tennessee that works with high school and college students teaching conservative political philosophy, submitted an application for tax exempt status to the IRS.
Boy, oh boy…Did THAT ever go south.
Kookogey received a response from the IRS with more than 90 items he would have to provide details on INCLUDING…
THE NAMES OF ALL THE STUDENTS HE HAD ALREADY TAUGHT AND…THOSE HE WOULD TEACH IN THE FUTURE!!!
One would think it impossible that the IRS would demand to know who would be taught in the FUTURE but…Here is the direct quote from the list of demands:
“Provide details regarding all training you have provided or will provide.”
“Indicate who has received or will receive the training and submit copies of the training material.”
According to Kookgey, “Can you imagine my responsibility to parents if I disclosed the names of their children to the IRS?”
This is a microcosm of what the IRS was doing to conservative groups applying for 501c4 status between 2010 and late 2012…During Obama’s reelection campaign.
Here’s the real deal…
