Speak Out Editorial- 9/10

WASHINGTON (WTOC) -

U.S. Senator Johnny Isakson didn't hold back his criticism of the Internal Revenue Service after a bipartisan report confirmed the IRS targeted conservative political groups and worked for its union on government time. 

Isakson said he was outraged, and so are we.  The world's biggest collection agency targeted conservative groups for exercising their First Amendment rights. 

The IRS was influenced by the political beliefs of individual IRS employees to try to limit political speech by individuals and tax-exempt organizations. Then the IRS lied to Congress about whether it targeted political organizations, and obstructed the Congressional investigation. 

When a government agency as powerful as the IRS gets on a political witch hunt, the citizens are in danger. The people who did wrong at the IRS need to be fired.

We have plenty of honest Americans who need work. 

What do you think?
