Dedicated To Restoring Our Government to Citizens' Control

Bossie: Chicago Style Politics Has Come To The IRS

Washington, DC — Citizens United President David N. Bossie issued the following statement in response to today’s Washington Post report that the Internal Revenue Service started maliciously investigating conservative groups in response to the Citizens United Supreme Court decision.

“When President Obama criticized the United States Supreme Court decision in Citizens United vs. FEC during his 2010 State of the Union address because it reasserted robust First Amendment rights for all Americans – he set the tone for the rest of the federal government,” said David N. Bossie, President of Citizens United. “As reported in the Washington Post, the IRS clearly saw the Citizens United case as a catalyst to go after conservative groups in the lead-up to President Obama’s reelection. The Obama Administration’s obsession of win-at-all-costs has brought Chicago style politics to the IRS. A full and complete congressional investigation must commence immediately and those who targeted fellow Americans for pure political purposes must be held accountable under the fullest extent of the law.”
