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.”

Uphold you oath of office to protect and serve the CONSTITUTION of the United States. It is pretty obvious that the targeting of Tea Party Members and anyone who taught the Constitution and Bill of Rights was in the cross hairs of the IRS and this administration. Since the Constitution and the Bill of Rights are the foundations of our government it is clear that this is an outright assault of our freedoms and our country. This starts at the top, like all these scandals - blamed on underlings. Underlings in the Federal Government don't do anything they aren't instructed to do. Benghazi, Fast and Furious, suing states that secure the borders and enforce laws, IRS and taping AP news writers phones. The question is just how far does this go as the law is only for the honest citizen to obey. DOJ's Holder is implementing Obama's desires irregardless of the law. IMPEACH.
