IRS ADMITS TARGETING CONSERVATIVE
TEA PARTY GROUPS DURING 2012 ELECTION
We The People Ohio Valley demand Congressional investigation
A top Internal Revenue Service (IRS) official admitted to the deliberate targeting of conservative tea party and patriot groups by Federal officials in the run-up to the 2012 election. This stunning admission confirms the suspicions and complaints made by numerous tea partiers and other conservative groups during the 2012 election season. These groups, in fact, were hassled and intimidated by (IRS) personnel.
We The People Ohio Valley (WTPOV) is requesting that our local Congressman Bill Johnson, Ohio District-6 and Congressman David McKinley, West Virginia District-1 seek a full and transparent Congressional investigation into the blatant and indefensible harassment of American citizens based on their perceived political perspective. Most tea partiers firmly believe it would be inappropriate for the Administration to investigate this matter.
Lois Lerner, Chief IRS Official over tax exempt organizations, apologized for the intentional government harassment and laid the blame on low level personnel in Cincinnati. Contradicting Lerner’s statement the Associated Press has obtained a report that indicates Senior Internal Revenue Service officials knew tea parties were being targeted as early as 2011. It is questionable to blame low level personnel in Cincinnati when at least 75 Tea Party and Patriot groups in several States including Ohio, Virginia and Texas were targeted. The very reason tea partiers and patriot groups exist is to preserve constitutionally limited governance for all Americans regardless of political affiliation as well as to safeguard against Government bullying, historically known as tyranny.
(WTPOV) spokesperson Bob Connors said, “It is ironic that this (IRS) admission comes on the heels of President Obama’s recent Ohio State speech where he referred to tea partiers saying, “They’ll warn that tyranny is always lurking just around the corner. You should reject these voices.” The (IRS) infringement on basic rights as well as ongoing coercion associated with the healthcare take over, the (EPA) war on coal and the imposition of excessive regulatory rules dramatically exposes big Government tyranny in progress,
It was wrong and illegal for the (IRS) to deliberately target Americans because of their political view and this matter should be fully investigated. All Americans, regardless of political affiliation, would be wise to heed the voices of historic record like that of President Thomas Jefferson who said, “When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. When the government fears the people, there is liberty.”
