During the May 14th broadcast of Fox News’ The Five, panel member Eric Bolling announced that he believes he was audited by the IRS after criticizing President Obama.
Bolling told the panel, “[In] 2011, I was pretty vocal against four more years of President Obama, and I don’t know if it’s coincidence or not but I did get an IRS audit in 2012 for my 2011 tax returns. I’m not sure if there’s any correlation.”
Andrea Tantaros chimed in saying, “It’s the Chicago way. [Obama] said he would change D.C. and the way they do business. Boy, has he ever.”
On Thursday, Obama demurred from appointing a special prosecutor to look into the growing IRS scandal, saying that he thought the current internal investigations he’s proposed would suffice.
“I think it s going to be sufficient for us to work with Congress–they’ve got a bunch of committees. Attorney General Holder announced a criminal investigation of what happened,” the President said during a joint press conference with Turkey’s Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoan.
