A new film playing tonight only (October 14) in 674 movie theaters across the United States chronicles members of the Tea Party and other conservative organizations who say they were targeted by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and tells the story of former IRS official Lois Lerner
The film, entitled, “Unfair: Exposing the IRS”, has been put together by Fathom Events, an entertainment company that brings large events to movie theaters. A panel discussion featuring former Arkansas Governor and Fox News personality Mike Huckabee follows the film, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
“The IRS shakes down innocent people, harasses them out of business, and does so without accountability…It wants you to provide a restaurant receipt from seven years ago, but it can’t even follow federal law to keep up with its internal correspondence by email.”
The Hollywood Reporter notes the film was written and produced by radio host Craig Bergman and directed by Judd Saul, and also features South Carolina Republican Congressman Trey Gowdy. Bergman stressed to the publication that the film isn’t just about Lois Lerner.
“Lois Lerner is the boogie man that the left put out as their scapegoat…This isn’t about rogue agents; this is a systemic problem that has been going on for 100 years, and I make the moral case against the system. Lois Lerner is just one bad guy on a long list of bad guys.
Last week, Lerner was the target of a video by investigative journalist Jason Mattera. Lerner refused to answer Mattera’s questions about IRS corruption.
