C4L Applauds House Action On IRS Targeting of Conservative Groups
Today Campaign for Liberty applauded the House of Representatives for calling on Attorney General Eric Holder to appoint a Special Counsel to investigate and prosecute the IRS’s targeting of conservative groups.
“The IRS’s political targeting of conservative groups is inexcusable and is just the latest example of why a growing number of Americans have no faith in their government,” said Campaign for Liberty President John Tate.
“By targeting groups based on their ideology, the IRS is attempting to stifle political speech it disagrees with, which is exactly what our founders fought against long ago. The American people deserve a full investigation to ensure those responsible are held accountable and that this never happens again.”
In March of 2014 Campaign for Liberty was fined by the IRS for refusing to hand over donor information. Campaign for Liberty is refusing to pay the fine, refusing to hand over donor information, and considering possible legal action.
