Washington, DC — Citizens United President David N. Bossie issued the following statement in response to Democrat Leader Nancy Pelosi’s statement blaming the 2010 Citizens United Supreme Court decision on the apparent IRS’s abuse of power against conservative organizations.
“Nancy Pelosi and her liberal allies’ obsession with the Citizens United Supreme Court case has reached a new low with those on the Left attempting to blame the Citizens United case for the IRS using Nixonian tactics against conservative groups,” said David N. Bossie, President of Citizens United. “It appears that the Left will stop at nothing in its quest to silence those who believe differently than them. Nowhere in Pelosi’s statement released today does she call for a congressional investigation. It is imperative that Congress and all other appropriate authorities investigate this issue and follow whatever road it leads down. Using the IRS for political purposes is shameful and Nancy Pelosi and Democrats in Congress must join their Republican colleagues and get to the bottom of this apparent abuse of power.”
