Stop IRS From Targeting Conservatives

RightMarch May 16, 2013



The IRS Has Been EXPOSED for Targeting Tea Party & Other Conservatives — Select Here to DEMAND Congress TAKE ACTION Against the IRS!

ALERT: It’s time to FIGHT BACK against the IRS!

We alerted you earlier to the reports about how the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has admitted that they deliberately harassed conservative political organizations claiming tax exempt status, such as Tea Party groups, by singling them out for additional scrutiny and investigation.

Lois Lerner, who heads the IRS division that oversees tax exempt groups, has admitted that at least 75 organizations were singled out because they included the words “tea party” or “patriot” in their applications for tax exempt status. While she acknowledged that actions were clearly violations of IRS policies, she laid the blame on “low-level workers” in the Cincinnati IRS office.

Now, the Feds have finally been outed for their anti-conservative policies of harassment — and it’s time for patriotic conservatives to start taking action to hold them accountable for it!

IT’S TIME TO MAKE IT A CRIME FOR THE IRS TO TARGET GROUPS FOR POLITICAL PAYBACK!

POLITICAL DISCRIMINATION A FELONY, NOT
JUST A SLAP ON THE WRIST:

Many of us have suspected that we were being targeted by the Obama regime for a long time now… but they kept denying it.

In fact, Ms. Lerner’s statements directly contradicted the testimony of then-IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman during a hearing of the House Ways and Means Committee in March 2012. At the time, Mr. Shulman stated unequivocally that “there is absolutely no targeting” and that “this is the kind of back and forth that happens to people” who apply for tax exempt status.

In other words, the IRS lied… to CONGRESS. Big surprise, huh?

The IRS’ inappropriate and intimidating investigation tactics included probing questions about organizations’ board members, officers, employees, and their families. There were also demands for extraordinary detail on employee training, vending, and advertising. Among other IRS demands, they required lists of “all issues important to your organization” with requests to “indicate your position regarding each issue.”

IRS agents singled out dozens of organizations for additional reviews because they included the words “tea party” or “patriot” in their exemption applications, said Lois Lerner, who heads the IRS division that oversees tax-exempt groups. In some cases, groups were asked for lists of donors, which already violates IRS policy in most cases.

The admission by the Obama administration that the Internal Revenue Service targeted political opponents echoes some of the most shameful abuses of government power in 20th century American history. A government organization like the IRS discriminating against political organizations is an outrageous abuse of power, and the American people have every right to demand answers and accountability. Those responsible individuals should face all appropriate punishment available under current law, AND all organizations and individuals who engage in political speech and expression should be protected against this kind of discriminatory behavior in the future.

We MUST NOT ALLOW the Obama regime to get away with this! Government officials who target political groups for IRS HARASSMENT need to be punished, not just fired!

Currently, IRS employees who discriminate against taxpayers may be subject to termination… but only at the “discretion” of their supervisors. But a new bill, introduced by Rep. Mike Turner (R-OH) and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), would increase the maximum penalty to a $5,000 fine, 5 years in prison, or both — which is the same maximum penalty for a member of the president’s cabinet who directs an employee to take that sort of action.

Dubbed the “Taxpayer Nondiscrimination and Protection Act,” this bill would amend Title 18 of the U.S. Code to make it a crime for an Internal Revenue Service (IRS) employee to
discriminate against an individual or group on the basis of their protected rights. In addition, it expressly clarifies that political speech and political expression are protected rights.

Americans of ALL political beliefs have been rightly outraged by the revelation of the IRS’ efforts to target certain political organizations. The fact that this could occur with little to no corrective action against those who seek to silence their fellow citizens is unacceptable. Americans should not have to wonder if their government is actively looking to subvert them or their political views. We live in a nation where respect for differing beliefs and a vibrant political discourse play an important role in shaping our government.

This is about protecting the rights of all Americans, and their ability to freely express their political thoughts. That’s why we need to take immediate action and get this bill passed! But we need YOUR help — send your Blast Faxes to every single Member of Congress NOW!

P.S. The most recent IRS Commissioner has already been forced to resign in the wake of this growing scandal. As we’ve learned more and more, it’s clear that the targeting wasn’t limited to an IRS office out in Cincinnati — as the White House claimed last week — but that it reached all the way to IRS headquarters in Washington. No doubt, we’ll soon learn that this goes ALL THE WAY TO THE TOP. The Obama regime thinks it can avoid a full investigation and punishment of the IRS thugs who perpetrated (and likely continue to perpetrate) these kinds of harassments.

WE MUST NOT LET THEM GET AWAY WITH IT! IT’S TIME TO MAKE IT A CRIME FOR THE IRS TO TARGET GROUPS FOR POLITICAL PAYBACK! You and I need to STAND UP and DEMAND that Congress TAKE ACTION NOW!
