IRS Harassment of Tea Party Groups – Our Freedom at Risk

 

A letter from Tom McClintock:

Dear Friend,

Today, sixty-two Members of Congress sent a letter to the IRS demanding that the agency stop its intrusive and abusive treatment of Tea Party groups seeking tax-exempt status.

 

From every corner of the country, Tea Party groups are coming forward with complaints of burdensome questionnaires — in some cases seeking donor lists and copies of every speech given at their events — coupled with unreasonable timelines and other heavy-handed tactics the only purpose of which appears to be delays and obstruction.
The ability of a group of citizens to freely associate for a common purpose is the bedrock of liberty.  Now, this basic right seems to be under attack from the Obama administration using one of the most powerful and feared federal agencies – the IRS.

 

Throughout this administration’s tenure, we have seen multiple cases of contempt for basic American freedoms, but this latest example is perhaps one of the most egregious.
As such, I have asked the House of Representatives for a rigorous investigation and if found to be accurate, that those officials responsible be exposed, disgraced, dismissed and debarred from any further position of trust or power within our government.

Sincerely,

Tom
