Demand Congress Investigate IRS Intimidation

Officials inside the Internal Revenue Services have admitted to and apologized for targeting Tea Party and conservative groups during the 2012 election. But reports indicate that senior officials inside the IRS knew, since 2010, that right-leaning organizations were being targeted for special scrutiny.

But the IRS didn’t just bully and harass, the federal agency also gave the confidential application data of conservative groups to leftist media sources.

Grassfire has launched a national petition demanding Congress launch a full criminal investigation into the actions and motivations behind the IRS’ targeting of Tea Party and conservative groups. They are mobilizing 50,000 citizen-petitions for hand-delivery to House and Senate leaders on Capitol Hill within the next two weeks. They need only 9000 more to reach 50,000...won't you join in and be counted among those who are concerned about the IRS's unconstitutional targeting and want them investigated thoroughly and sanctioned for this injustice?

If so...sign the petition below and tell our government that this injustice will NOT be tolerated!
The petition states:
As an American citizen, I demand that Congress thoroughly investigate IRS actions targeting and intimidating Tea Party and conservative groups. This kind of politically motivated bullying and harassment by an agency of the federal government is a deplorable abuse of power. Those responsible should be fired immediately and face appropriate criminal prosecution, while any Obama administration official complicit in this outrageous IRS conduct should be removed from office. I also call on Congress to halt any increase in funding or staffing for the Internal Revenue Service for the duration of the Obama administration.
