The IRS has agreed to pay $50,000 in damages to the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) for unlawfully releasing its private information to a gay rights group that is a political rival, the Daily Signal has learned.

NOM expressed relief at the settlement agreement.

“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.”

Nickarama makes a good point. They’re paying a fine with taxpayer money. How is that a punishment? How does that hurt?

And why is no one in jail over this?

Oh, yeah. Eric Holder.

This is an ugly, lawless administration.
