IRS Investigating Obama Church.

The IRS is investigating the United Church of Christ due to a speech Obama gave at their national convention last year after he became a candidate for president. Obama belongs to the 1.2 million-member Protestant group through his Chicago congregation headed by Jeremiah Wright. The Washington Post reports that according to a copy of an IRS letter that the church received Monday, the IRS is launching the inquiry “because reasonable belief exists that the United Church of Christ has engaged in political activities that could jeopardize its tax-exempt status.” Under federal law, churches are barred from becoming directly or indirectly involved in campaigns of political candidates. UCC has denied any wrongdoing. The hunt is on Obama needs to look out. Could this be a witch hunt? Could We see more of this in the future? Why did this come up now?
