The White House Visitors Log reveals that President Barack Obama met with Internal Revenue Service (IRS) union boss Colleen Kelley on March 31, 2010—the daybefore the Inspector General’s report says the IRS began its scheme to target tea party and conservative groups.
Furthermore, Obama appointed Colleen Kelley, president of the National Treasury Employees Union (NTEU), to the Federal Salary Council whose job is to recommend pay raises for IRS and other federal employees one week after Obama and Democrats suffered historic midterm losses in 2010. Two years later, Kelley’s 150,000-member union had raised $580,412, 94% of which went to Democratic federal candidates. The group also strongly backed Obama’s reelection.
American Spectator reporter Jeffrey Lord, who uncovered the visitor log connection, says the March 31st meeting between Obama and Kelley was not the only time Kelley met.
