Tell Congress: Audit the IRS and Charge Members for their Crimes!

Congress must find the very individuals who authorized the IRS' attacks on free speech, remove them from their posts, and charge them for their criminal activity.

On May 10, IRS officials apologized for targeting conservative, tea party, and other pro-limited government groups and organizations. 

The fact that IRS agents would bully groups with particular ideologies contrary to their own is a gross fact -- what's worse is that senior IRS officials were aware of these acts since 2011 and had done nothing to stop them. In other words, senior officials have been condoning the use of our taxation system as a bludgeon for nearly three years. 

Congress must audit the Internal Revenue Service for these unacceptable crimes. Congress must find the very individuals who authorized these free-speech-based attacks, remove them from their posts, and charge them for their criminal activity. 

Sen. Mike Lee said, "This should not be dismissed as just another conflict between left and right; it is a conflict between the federal government and the American people, who — regardless of their political leanings — should be free to exercise their constitutionally protected rights without fear of political retribution from the world’s most powerful tax-collection agency."

Kentucky Senator Rand Paul introduced a resolution on May 14 to investigate these IRS abuses. 

“The IRS has been using taxing power as a political tool to bully these conservative groups and this type of intimidation is a major violation of our U.S. Constitution,” Sen. Paul said. “This act of discrimination should not be tolerated and I demand a formal investigation seeking criminal charges against any individuals who authorized or were involved in targeting people of the United States based on their political views.”

The person who really needs to be FIRED and NOW IS: SARAH HALL INGRAM. She is the one who had the job before the guy who just resigned and is being grilled in the Senate, right now. I wouldn't be a bit surprised if she is the True one behind the targeting of Conservative groups and Christian religious groups with President Obama's blessings. The small people who work for the I.R.S., the same people were following orders which had to come from very upper management, i.e. Sarah Hall Ingram.

I really don't believe Obama didn't know. His agenda is the total destruction of this country as we know it.

It is an outrage that the President does not know what is going on in his watch. Congress must keep on its investigation to find out why the The White House fail to protect the American People.

These IRS paper pushers are the same paper pushers. Who will eventually police the Obomba health- care debauckle. Since IRS employees & agents miss used & failed their post at IRS. How bad will they miss use & fail their post as police for Obomba care. In any military chain of command flow . The heads roll from the top down. Through out & down the whole chain of command flow. Why not the same in IRS. Three scandel`s caught in 3 months in Obomba`s adminstration. Sad state of affairs in Obomb`s out of control administration chain of command
