Here's the story of a nice lady and small business owner who had no contact with the IRS until she applied for non-profit status for both a local Tea Party chapter and an anti-voter fraud organization. Yet mysteriously (and having absolutely nothing to do with her initiating those two groups or with any person or government organization synchronizing the activities), since 2010 she has been audited and/or visited by the IRS, FBI, OSHA, ATF, and even the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality.
Yet none of this sudden interest in her family's business is in response to a specific complaint or concern. Just an unfortunate coincidence, I presume. The more than a dozen visits and contacts from these suddenly concerned federal and state offices have cost her tens of thousands of dollars in fines and probably ten times that in attorney fees.
Read it and weep.
