Director of IRS Tax-Exempt Determinations Office Is Obama Donor

Eliana Johnson points out that the director of the Office of Rulings and Agreements, which oversees the determination of tax-exempt organizations, is a donor to Barack Obama. Holly Paz donated $2,000 to Obama’s 2008 campaign, according to Open Secrets, which maintains a database of individual political donations.

Liberal Democrats comprise the vast majority of federal bureaucrats. For example, in the past two presidential races, roughly 85 percent of the money contributed to a candidate by IRS employees went to Barack Obama.

This is consistent with what I observe here in the Washington, D.C. area. I estimate the percentage of bureaucrats to be at least 85. And most federal bureaucrats I know hate conservatives as a class (but not me, I hope).

That’s one reason why, as I wrote the other day, conservatives should never support legislation that empowers the federal government to promote liberalism. Any constraints written into such legislation are likely to be ignored by the bureaucrats who administer the law.

And conservatives should begin adhering to this rule by rejecting the Schumer-Rubio immigration bill.
