The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has admitted to intentionally targeting conservative groups since at least 2011.
It has admitted that it searched tax applications for words like “Tea Party” and even “patriot.” Once it found those groups, it made intrusive and unconstitutional inquiries, demanding answers “upon penalty of perjury.”
IRS targets included pro-life and conservative groups in swing states before the 2012 election. This ongoing IRS abuse continues today, as the ACLJ represents dozens of these targeted groups. Using the government for partisan advantage violates a sacred trust.
