Baucus Throws His Weight Around

Senator Baucus has suddenly discovered that some political groups are misusing the tax code, and he has written the IRS Commissioner asking him to investigate. Absolutely no word about the idea of not giving any tax exemptions for swaying partisan issues.
Notice how he only is concerned now that his own election is safeguarded. Last election cycle, because he had no serious opposition, Max was able to dump most of his re-election money into getting Democrats elected. Fine, that is his right to do so. But using the IRS for political purposes? Does the name Richard Nixon mean anything to him?
But his sudden concern betrays his cynical duplicity. Maybe now is the time to start a PAC for the sole purpose of recalling Max. After all, most of the Lefties here are pissed off at him for Obamacare and meeting with Republicans. And most of the rest of the State is pissed at him for saying that he doesn't read the bills he is voting for.
Maybe Max needs to go ahead and retire to the old homestead in McLean.
