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.”

It is high time that the U.S. Attorney General, Congress, Senate & President are held accountable to working for the American People that hired them, the promises they made (& are doing the exact opposite) & laws they are breaking. Both parties are failing this country & our legal/natural born citizens miserably, shame on all of you!

It is pretty obvious, if employees of the Federal Government take an oath to uphold the law and not break them that it just "WORDS" that mean little. And for the lack of prosecutions for lying and perjuring themselves it is similarly apparent that Congress doesn't either. The Dems think making it public is punishment enough and Republicans don't seem to have enough backbone to stand up for what is right and principled.

Crime and corruption in every department of this administration and no one has been fired (IRS retired), Benghazi (lied to transferred to other departments). Doesn't seem like there are any consequences for stealing, perjury, lying, collecting data and providing it to friends of this administration.
