He’s Offended? Shulman upset by political questions

By Rick Manning

The former IRS Commissioner, Douglas Shulman, who was appointed by President George W. Bush in 2008, is a former Democrat whose wife has a history of contributing to Democrat campaigns including a $2,000 contribution to the John Kerry presidential campaign in 2004.

In an ironic twist, during Shulman’s appearance before the House Government Oversight and Reform Committee, he recoiled when asked about his political activities in the past.  Imagine the rudeness of a member of Congress asking a witness who is embroiled in a scandal involving the targeting of the Administration’s political enemies, about his own political allegiances.

For an Agency that thought it was okay to not only target conservative political groups for scrutiny, but also ask intrusive questions about the religious activities of some of the groups it is beyond the pale that Mr. Shulman felt a question about his political beliefs was out of line.

Here is contribution history of Shulman’s wife, Susan Anderson, a registered Democrat living in the District of Columbia.
