Last July east Idaho businessman Frank Vandersloot gave an exclusive interview to KPVI at a time when was the target of multiple audits. In all the IRS looked into Vandersloot's activities twice and the Department of Labor also conducted an audit. While federal audits are nothing new, those audits came about only 60 days after the Obama campaign had named Vandersloot as one of eight Mitt Romney supporters who, according the the campaign, had questionable backgrounds.
Now that the IRS is under scrutiny for targeting the President's political opponents, it's easy to wonder if Vandersloot was also a part of that targeting.
Vandersloot appeared on Fox News Tuesday during "Your World with Neil Cavuto." During that interview Frank said he spent about $80,000 in defending his reputation during the three audits. He also said the audits he endured in 2012 were not as invasive as the audits reportedly performed on conservative political groups.
Much like he did when KPVI spoke with Vandersloot in July, Frank comes well short of accusing the President of a broad conspiracy. He seems to hope that his audits are coincidental. But Vandersloot also hopes future presidents will decide against creating any kind of list in the first place.
"My point is, he made the list. He put the target up there. He knew something was going to happen. I don't think he knew exactly what," Vandersloot said during his interview.
