Reid: Don’t Jump To Conclusions On IRS Scandal


Senator Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has urged his fellow lawmakers to avoid jumping to conclusions with regard to allegations that the Internal Revenue Service singled out conservative nonprofits for excess filing requirements.


“I intend to take a close look at the inspector general’s report when it is released,” he said, adding, “I look forward to this report0.”

Meanwhile, White House press secretary Jay Carney said the IRS inspector general notified Administration officials of the forthcoming scandal back in April—but, he added that the President only learned that Tea Party groups were especially targeted from news reports on Friday.

    LOL. They go public and confess their crimes on National television, and Reid says don’t jump to conclusions. Let’s tell our cops that. Just because they turn themselves in and confess, don’t jump to conclusions. Wow. I don’t think I have ever heard a more absurd statement in my life, and I am 50 years old!

    I think what Reid meant to say is ” be a good wishy washy drone and don’t draw a conclusion.”
