By now, you’ve probably seen the news:
Colleen Kelley, president of the National Treasury Employees Union which represents employees of the Internal Revenue Service, met at the White House with President Obama the day before two IRS officials created the “Sensitive Case Report” that targeted Tea Party groups for special scrutiny on their applications for non-profit status.
White House visitors logs show that Kelley visited the White House on March 31, 2010, to meet with Obama, a day before an Inspector General’s report shows that the “Sensitive Case Report” was created, Jeffrey Lord of The American Spectator reported . . .
And you might be surprised (but probably not) to learn that Colleen M. Kelley has never worked a day in the private sector:
[A]n NTEU member since 1974, Kelley was an IRS Revenue Agent for 14 years and served in various NTEU chapter leadership positions, including chapter president of NTEU Chapter 34 in Pittsburgh. She was elected National President in August 1999 and was overwhelmingly re-elected to a fourth four-year term in 2011.
Kelley first joined the IRS upon graduation from Drexel University, where she earned a bachelor’s degree in accounting. She also earned a Master of Business Administration (MBA) from the University of Pittsburgh.
Go read it all, Stacy also lists the folks, or some of them, that Kelley seems to, shall we say, dislike intensely. I am sure Dan Pfeiffer would dismiss this all as “irrellevant”, and tell us these are just funny coincidences. Me, I think The Church lady might sum it up best
