The producer of an anti-Obamacare movie announced Tuesday he’s the latest conservative hit with an Internal Revenue Service audit, the Washington Times reports.
Logan Clements, who produced the movie “Sick and Sicker: ObamaCare Canadian Style,” said this is the first time he’s attracted IRS attention.
“I had never been audited before I made this movie,” Clements said, arguing that the chances of him being chosen for an audit are incredibly small. “There seems to be a pattern here.”
As with any IRS audit, Clements is reportedly faced with a laundry list of demands from the tax agency, including “a detailed description of all transactions related to all prior year returns and supporting documentation.”
As Lois Lerner continues to battle congressional investigations into IRS targeting of conservatives, Clements is extremely suspicious about the motivations behind his audit. (RELATED: Conservative Calls Grow For IRS To Stop Auditing Breitbart News)
In a YouTube video decrying his audit, Clements noted that Breitbart News is now the subject of an IRS audit, and conservative filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza was prosecuted on campaign finance charges. (RELATED: TheDC Interview With Dinesh D’Souza, Part I)
“It sounds like a fishing expedition by the IRS, an attempt to tie me up for a very long time in retaliation for making a movie against Obamacare,” Clements said. “Perhaps they were hoping that voters wouldn’t see my movie before the election by keeping me tied up in a battle with the IRS. Well, in fact, their action is going to have the complete opposite effect.” (RELATED: Lois Lerner Called Conservatives ‘Assholes,’ Fantasized About Working At Obama Group)
As a result, Clements will be releasing his movie early online in an effort to get his anti-Obamacare message out before midterm elections on Nov. 4.
