Not just the Tea Party

There is a lawsuit alleging the IRS worked to oppress pro-Israel groups as well as Tea Party groups. There's a smoking-gun quote:

According to the lawsuit, an IRS official told Z Street’s lawyer in 2009 that the group’s application for tax-exempt status would be “sent to a special unit in the D.C. office to determine whether the organization’s activities contradict the administration’s public policies.”

That's an outright admission of viewpoint discrimination, at least as far as that particular group.
