Doug Shulman was appointed U.S. Commissioner of Internal Revenue Service in 2008 by then-president George W. Bush. Nancy Pelosi tried to blame the IRS scandal on Bush for this reason.
But Shulman is a Democrat who had donated $500 to the Democratic National Committee in the month prior to the re-election of President Bush in 2004. Call me crazy, but I can’t imagine Barack Obama appointed anyone to anything who had not ponied up big time to HIS campaign.
Shulman has been to the Obama White House 157 times that we know about. At least 118 of these were during the period when the Obama-Shulman IRS was targeting tea party and conservative groups.
By contrast, Shulman’s predecessor Mark Everson only visited the White House once during his four years of service in the George W. Bush administration. And Attorney General Eric Holder, head of the Justice Department and allegedly a close personal friend of the President, has visited the Obama White House less than half as many times as Shulman has.
Neither the White House nor Shulman has offered any information about either the frequency or the content of these visits. Methinks they were not discussing Barack’s golf swing.
