Conspiratorialist Rand Paul cites IRS memo that seems not to exist


Republican Sen. Rand Paul’s detachment from reality is getting worse, as we see HERE:

While the Internal Revenue Service maintains it was not focusing on conservative groups out of political bias, Sen. Rand Paul claimed Sunday there was a “written policy” floating around the agency that said IRS officials were “targeting people who were opposed to the president.”

“And when that comes forward, we need to know who wrote the policy and who approved the policy,” the Republican senator from Kentucky said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

Pressed for more precise details about the memo he was referring to, Paul said he hasn’t seen such a policy statement but has heard about it.


Steve Benen discusses HERE how “Paul believes there are secret memos that exist in his imagination that point to a conspiracy that only he understands.”

FOOTNOTE: As for the notion in certain circles that the IRS has unduly targeted conservatives for tax audits, check THIS POST from last week.

    On one hand, Rand Paul is working to position himself as a legitimate contender for the 2016 race. Then, on the other hand, he does crap like this that show he’s really a few cards short of a full deck and has no shot, none, at the nomination in 2016. Nutjob.
