The Obama IRS refused to grant tax exempt status to Christian and pro-life groups. But, Muslim organizations were granted nonprofit status almost immediately. Having spent most of my legal career working with tax exempt entities, the IRS scrutiny on the Tea Party isn’t news to me. In my days at large law firms, I handled a portfolio of nonprofit Tea Party organizations and saw firsthand how the IRS treated them when it came to granting exemptions.

In many cases, the organizations fight tooth-and-nail to get through IRS scrutiny, often facing pages of questions from the IRS on their activities.

On the flip side, I’ve worked with numerous Muslim organizations as well. And every single application of a Muslim nonprofit has flown through the IRS, with minimal scrutiny.

What does this say about the way that the IRS is handling applications from Muslim nonprofits? For one, in the application phase, Muslim nonprofits seem to have an upper hand over Tea Party groups.

Is this a tacit power-play by the Obama administration? Some would say so. The Obama IRS also harassed a pro-Israel group suggesting they might be involved in terrorism.
