The IRS Targeting Of Right Wing Groups Is Totally Wrong, And Barack Obama Has Denounced It!

President Barack Obama made clear today that he only learned about the Internal Revenue Service investigation of right wing groups on Friday, when it became a news story, and he strongly denounced such activity, whether against right wing groups now, or left wing groups under Republican Presidents, calling such activities “outrageous”!

There is no justification or excuse for such activity, and those who have engaged in it must be held accountable to the full extent of the law!

We are in a democracy, and just because one may disagree or oppose the objectives of various organizations is no excuse for pressuring or monitoring such groups, as long as they are working within our system of laws!

The Republicans are trying to make this a major issue, but they have their own history of abuse to consider before they cast stones!
