Time To Strip NAACP Of Tax Exemption

They've run ads containing blatant falsehoods. They've tried to influence elections. They've functioned as an adjunct of the DNC. Now the NAACP is refusing to cooperate with an IRS probe of its tax-exempt status.

The nation's largest civil rights group is refusing to turn over documents for an Internal Revenue Service investigation into allegedly improper political activity, claiming the probe is politically motivated.

In a letter to the IRS Friday, the NAACP cited what it contends is evidence that the agency launched the audit before the November election because of political pressure.

Sorry, folks, but it doesn't matter what prompted the complaint. Cooperation with this sort of investigation is an obligation.

Time for them to lose their tax exempt status if they don't immediately comply.
