IRS Employees Overwhelmingly Donate to Obama, Democrats

Remember, there was no political bias regarding the targeting and harassment of Tea Party or conservative groups.  The IRS is strictly a non-partisan entity.

Via the Center for Public Integrity:

President Barack Obama collected more than $110,000 from employees of the Internal Revenue Service during his 2008 and 2012 campaigns — significantly more money than any other contemporary political candidate, according to a Center for Public Integrity analysis of Federal Election Commission filings maintained by the Center for Responsive Politics.

The donations were split roughly evenly between Obama’s two presidential bids.

Ahead of the 2012 election, IRS employees collectively gave Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney about $25,000 — less than half the amount received by Obama. For his part, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., the GOP’s presidential nominee in 2008, collected only about $6,000 from IRS employees.

The trend isn’t new either.  The report indicates that employees have donated over $840,000 between 1989 and 2012, with over two-thirds of it going to Democrat or liberal-leaning organizations.
