The IRS owes an apology to every Tea Party group in America, including Susie Johnson and her eight stuffed animals. (3:25)

FOLKS, BENGHAZI ISN'T EVEN THE

BEST.

I MEAN, WORST SCANDAL TO HIT THE

ADMINISTRATION TODAY.

>> THE WHITE HOUSE ALSO HAD TO

RESPOND TODAY TO ANOTHER FIRE

STORM.

THE ADMISSION BY THE I.R.S. THAT

IT GAVE EXTRA SCRUTINY TO

ORGANIZATIONS WITH THE WORDS,

QUOTE, TEA PARTY OR, QUOTE,

PATRIOT IN THEIR TITLES WHEN

THEY WERE APPLYING FOR

TAX-EXEMPT STATUS.

>> AS EARLY AS MARCH 2010 THE

CINCINATTI FIELD OFFICE WHICH

WAS PUT IN CHARGE OF EVALUATING

APPLICATIONS FOR TAX-EXEMPT

STATUS BEGAN SEARCHING FOR

GROUPS WITH POLITICALLY

IDENTIFIABLE NAMES.

ACCORDING TOçó THE "WASHINGTON

POST" OF THE 298 GROUPS SELECTED

FOR SPECIAL SCRUTINY 72 HAD THE

WORDS "TEA PARTY" IN THEIR TITLE

>> Stephen: THE I.R.S. OWES AN

APOLOGY TO EVERY TEA PARTY GROUP

IN AMERICA INCLUDING SUZY

JOHNSON AND HER EIGHT STUFFED

ANIMALS.

FOLKS, OH, THEY'RE COMING FOR

HER.

FOLKS, THIS IS A NEW LOW FOR THE

I.R.S.

WHAT'S NEXT?

MAKING G.E. PAY TAXES?

FOLKS, THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY TO

DESCRIBE A SCANDAL THIS HOT.

>> THIS SHOULD SEND A CHILL UP

YOUR SPINE.

>> IT IS ABSOLUTELY CHILLING

THAT THE I.R.S. WAS SINGLING OUT

CONSERVATIVE GROUPS FOR EXTRA

REVIEW.

>> THE A.C.L.U. IS TALKING ABOUT

HOW CHILLING THIS IS.

>> THIS IS CHILLING.

Stephen: IT'S CHILLING WHICH

ALSO DESCRIBES THE CHAMPAGNE

I'VE BEEN WAITING TO BREAK OUT

FOR JUST THIS SCANDAL.

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ).

BECAUSE...

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ).

FOLKS, THIS PROVES THAT

EVERYTHING I'VE EVER SAID ABOUT

OBAMA IS TRUE.

SO IT'S OFFICIAL.

HE'S A SECRET MUSLIM,

SHAPE-SHIFTING ALIEN FROM KENYA

WHO IS COMING FOR OUR GUNS AND

BO IS A MEMBER OF THE

ILLUMINATI.

FOLKS, OF COURSE, THE BIGGEST

VICTIM HERE, I'M SAD TO PROUDLY

SAY, IS ME.

YOU SEE, THE TAX EXEMPTIONS AT

ISSUE WERE FOR NONPROFIT GROUPS

KNOWN AS 501 C-4s LIKE CROSS

ROADS G.P.S.

LONG-TIME VIEWERS WILL REMEMBER

MY LOVE OF EXPLAINING THAT THESE

GROUPS DO NOT HAVE TO DISCLOSE

THEIR DONORS AND ARE ALLOWED TO

TAKE PART IN POLITICAL

ACTIVITIES BUT THEIR PRIMARY

PURPOSE MUST TO BE PROCEED AT

THE TIME SOCIAL WELFARE.

FOR EXAMPLE, KARL ROVE'S

CROSSROADS G.P.S. WORKS TO

PROMOTE SOCIAL WELFARE BY

CAMPAIGNING TO ELIMINATE

WELFARE.

OF COURSE, THE MOST FAMOUS 501

C-4 OF ALL IS COLBERT SUPERPAC

S-H-H.

YOU REMEMBER OUR MOTTO: MAKING A

BETTER TOMORROW, TOMORROW.

WELL, THE I.R.S. MUST KNOW OUR

MOTTO TOO BECAUSE THEY WERE

CAUGHT SINGLING OUT 501 C-4

APPLICATIONS THAT INCLUDED

PHRASES LIKE "MAKE AMERICA A

BETTER PLACE TO LIVE."

I BET THEY ALSO SINGLED OUT

ORGANIZATIONS THAT CLAIMED A HAM

AS A DEPENDENT.

WE'LL BE RIGHT
