U.S. Government Accountability Office Auditor Admits
his political philosophies and those of his comrades in DSA:
"We have a bunch of just communists, like no prefix, and that's basically me. We [also] have some folks who are Trotskyists or Leninists."
"Sometimes as a government employee, you have to keep it under wraps a little bit so you don't get into trouble and that's kind of what I try to do."
"Everything that I'm doing with DSA is stuff that I'm not supposed to be doing for work… it's explicitly prohibited. If they find out I could get in trouble, basically."
"No one knows I spent six hours yesterday doing social media for DSA."
"I have informed them, I filed all the paperwork I needed to file, I was purposely a little bit vague about what kind of organization [DSA] is… I wasn't like [I said], it's a socialist organization and we want to destroy capitalists."
"There's no one looking over my shoulder. So like, a lot of times what I'll do, and this is kind of what I'm doing right now, is like I'll drink the night before, I tele-work and then I'm like, if I'm 15 minutes late to log on, no one checks."
"… I break rules every day, at any point I can get fired for what I do with DSA."

Thomas Sheehy, an IRS tax examiner and member of the Austin Democratic Socialists of America in Texas, and Jerry Semasek, an IRS attorney in Washington, DC. These officials talk candidly about the IRS's unfair treatment of conservative non-profit groups, as well as deleted emails by former IRS Commissioner John Koskinen. These IRS officials discuss the prevailing views of IRS employees; they showcase their bias, and reveal the potential use of work benefits for socialist activism.
At one point in the new video, Sheehy expresses his disdain for the U.S. Constitution:
SHEEHY: "Unfortunately, I am not allowed by the bylaws of my union to go against the constitution."
JOURNALIST: "Would you?"
SHEEHY: "John Koskinen. He got a lot of flak for giving increased scrutiny to these Tea Party groups. Conservatives got really mad at him, he was so cool though because he deleted all the emails, so they could not hold any evidence against him."Sheehy continues:
SHEEHY: "Yeah, I don’t give a s**t if that is a crime for doing that because… you should give increased scrutiny to those groups because a lot of them are just f***ing fronts for the Koch brothers or whatever."
SHEEHY: "I will say, I just really like the benefits. I get a lot of paid time off and sick days. So, like, for DSA stuff, I can just honestly... I will just stay late for a period. So, I will just call in for the next day."
SHEEHY: "I mean, as long as like the manager doesn't find out and you don't explicitly say “hey I'm calling in sick to do Democratic Socialist of America work” then I mean like yeah. You know, you just gotta, you just gotta like sort of manage, you know, when and where you're like doing, like, the work you do."
Sheehy goes on to explain how other socialist activists are employed throughout the IRS:
SHEEHY: "My friend Chris, like he does a lot of like tech stuff. He even runs the f**kin', I was looking over his shoulder once at the electoral forum and I noticed that he actually is on the national social media working group. So, he helps run the national twitter account. He also runs our local twitter account. He also is one that does all the bylaws and stuff…. he also works for the IRS."
Mistakes Were MadeIn a separate meeting, attorney Semasek discloses to Project Veritas multiple times that “mistakes were made,” during the 2013 scandal when conservative non-profits were targeted when applying for tax-exempt status.
SEMASEK: “… you know what, for what it’s worth, on the record, I know people in Tax Exempt Government Entities. All that stuff we saw in the news, yeah mistakes were made”Attorney Semasek, who worked for the IRS during the 2013 scandal, continued:
SEMASEK: “… The law requires that an organization can’t be political, it can’t be partisan to be tax exempt… Those employees in Cincinnati Ohio started to separate them and put them in a pile. And it turns out that they were like the Tea Party group of people. And I think they did, like Lois Lerner and maybe some of her employees were more liberal leaning or Democrats so I don’t know if they disallowed them, but they required them to produce more documentation to try to prove that they weren’t partisan.”He repeated that mistakes were made:
SEMASEK: “… and that was bad. I think, from what people tell me, that really know about, there were mistakes made, but the problem with what happened… And again, there were mistakes made, and I think probably some people that were advised against conservative groups did make some mistakes.”
