SENATOR tOOMEY TROUBLED BY irs’ TARGETING OF CONSERVATIVES, CALLS FOR INVESTIGATION
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) has released this statement about recent news reports that the IRS targeted conservative groups for extra scrutiny.
"Whether you are conservative, liberal, libertarian, or any other political
persuasion, you should be concerned that the IRS was targeting specific groups for extra scrutiny and intimidation. It is very troubling that the President hasn’t swiftly condemned such efforts, which warrant a congressional investigation and an apology to those who were targeted. The IRS’s actions are akin to an enemies list and further contribute to the deep cynicism that many Americans have about the government."
