Following the release of a Government Accountability Office report on the flawed auditing processes at the Internal Revenue Service, FreedomWorks National Grassroots Director Noah Wall commented:
“It has been nearly three years since the IRS admitted that it was targeting conservatives for their political beliefs. No one has been held accountable for these disgusting violations of the rights to free association and free speech.”
“This GAO report shows that there are still fundamental weaknesses in the IRS’s audit procedures that could lead to unfairness in the application of tax laws by a new breed of Lois Lerners, bureaucrats with ideological agendas who simply want to go after conservatives with the heavy hand of the federal government. IRS Commissioner John Koskinen never intended to fix this corrupt agency, and we urge the House to take up the articles of impeachment against him.”
