IRS Under Fire for Targeting Conservatives Again … and This Time It’s a Media Outlet

The Internal Revenue Service, already under investigation for illegally targeting conservative and tea party groups, recently audited the conservative Breitbart News Network in a move that the company says was politically motivated.

 

.@SenTedCruz called the audit of Breitbart News Network ‘a gross abuse of power.’

 

The IRS sought the company’s financial records from 2012, Fox News reported earlier today. Brietbart.com relaunched that year with a more robust reporting team. Over the past two years, it has produced hard-hitting stories exposing scandals in the Obama administration.

 

The news drew a swift reaction from Breitbart’s leaders and prompted Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, to fire off a letter to the IRS demanding answers about the audit.

 

“For the IRS to behave like a partisan political organization, targeting media organizations whose views differ from the president’s, would represent a gross abuse of power,” Cruz said. “It would undermine the statutory mission and integrity of the IRS. And it would likely subject IRS employees to criminal prosecution.”Scissors-32x32.png

The strangest thing happened, the IRS lost the letter....but have no fear they are even now putting together a high level blue ribbon committee to find out just what happened. Unfortunately the letter was lost before anyone read it, so they are unable to respond to the Senators questions.

Cruz is also seeking the answers to these seven questions from the IRS:

 

Does he understand "Pound sand!"? The IRS will answer with some form of that, if they answer at all.
