IRS admits they leaked confidential data about National Organization of Marriage in 2012

The IRS has admitted wrongdoing and has to pay NOM $50,000, but that just doesn’t seem like enough to me. After all, the IRS leaked the National Organization of Marriage’s list of major donors, their names, addresses and their contributions, and they leaked it to NOM’s same-sex adversaries in an election year.

Geez. Talk about targeting conservative groups.

DAILY SIGNAL – Two years after activists for same-sex marriage obtained the confidential tax return and donor list of a national group opposed to redefining marriage, the Internal Revenue Service has admitted wrongdoing and agreed to settle the resulting lawsuit.

The Daily Signal has learned that, under a consent judgment today, the IRS agreed to pay $50,000 in damages to the National Organization for Marriage as a result of the unlawful release of the confidential information to a gay rights group, the Human Rights Campaign, that is NOM’s chief political rival.

“Congress made the disclosure of confidential tax return information a serious matter for a reason,” NOM Chairman John D. Eastman told The Daily Signal. “We’re delighted that the IRS has now been held accountable for the illegal disclosure of our list of major donors from our tax return.”

Here is NOM’s Chair talking about it on Fox News just two weeks ago:
