It's a big deal because only one political party was targeted....AND they were purposefully kept out of the election cycle by leaving their applications in limbo. The election might have been very different had the IRS NOT done so. And of course, that was their purpose. It's unconstitutional to use a federal agency against citizens for political reasons. Look up Nixon.
