    This afternoon, the Senate Finance Committee released their bipartisan report, concluding their two-year investigation into the IRS’s unconstitutional targeting of grassroots conservative organizations applying for tax-exempt status.

    Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT), the Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, stated,

    “This bipartisan investigation shows gross mismanagement at the highest levels of the IRS and confirms an unacceptable truth: that the IRS is prone to abuse. The Committee found evidence that the administration’s political agenda guided the IRS’s actions with respect to their treatment of conservative groups. Personal politics of IRS employees, such as Lois Lerner, also impacted how the IRS conducted its business. American taxpayers should expect more from the IRS and deserve an IRS that lives up to its mission statement of administering the tax laws fairly and impartially – regardless of political affiliation. Moving forward, it is my hope we can use this bipartisan report as a foundation to work towards substantial reforms at the agency so that this never happens again.”

    Has the IRS done the same for Liberal political groups?

    If not, why not? :BangHead:

    But the Obama Injustice Department is still not interested.
