Obama's Half Brother's Shady Charity was Approved by IRS
RUSH: Okay, Malik Obama. "Abongo 'Roy' Malik Obama, is Barack Obama's half-brother and was the best man at his wedding, but he has a checkered past. In addition to running his charity," the Barack Hussein Obama Foundation, "Malik Obama ran unsuccessfully to be the governor of Siaya County in Kenya. He was accused of being a wife beater and seducing the newest of his twelve wives while she was a 17-year-old school girl."
Now, "It is also not clear what the Barack H. Obama Foundation actually does. Its website claims the organization has built a madrassa and was building a[n] imam's house but there is no other evidence that" they've done anything except collect money. And here, again, the important thing to review: Obama's half-brother had his illegal and very shady charity approved in less than a month, in June of 2011.

Meanwhile, every Democrat group, from ProPublica to Organizing for Action, has sailed through the process for tax-exempt status without even a question -- without even a single question -- compared to what the Tea Party people have had to go through.

Politico: Sequester to Close IRS for a Day
RUSH: I kid you not. The Politico has a story running as we speak that says, "Furloughs to Shut Down IRS For a Day."
