Our progressively more powerful government requires that all sorts of confidential details be disclosed to the IRS in tax returns. And then, when it suits someone's political agenda, that confidential information can be leaked to the co-chairman of President Obama's reelection committee for him to use as he pleases. Breitbart.com has the details.

FLASHBACK: The IRS illegally leaked Richard Nixon's tax returns. John O. Requard Jr. denies that he was leaker. Requard, who had been a volunteer for George McGovern's presidential campaign in 1972, was working for the IRS in 1973. He does admit that IRS employees had printed out and passed around Nixon's tax returns. He just says it was someone else who sent it the media.
