Meanwhile, outside of Congress, the president of Citizens United, a conservative organization at the center of the Supreme Court’s 2010 decision, reacted with anger at the suggestion by Pelosi that the court case was at least partly at fault for IRS conduct.
“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,” David Bossie said. “It is imperative that Congress and all other appropriate authorities investigate this issue and follow whatever road it leads down.”
He added, “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.”
