Cornyn responds to IRS targeting conservative groups

From the Office of Senator John Cornyn:

U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) issued the following statement after the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) apologized for targeting conservative groups during the 2012 election:

"Today's revelation that the IRS targeted average Americans using taxpayer dollars solely for disagreeing with them politically is completely unacceptable from this Administration.

"Partisan politics have consistently characterized this White House, and the Administration must take immediate disciplinary action and ensure American citizens are not subject to this type of Orwellian persecution again." 

Sen. Cornyn previously sent two letters urging the IRS to prevent politics from playing a role in any action taken on 501(c)(4) non-profit applications. In a March 2012 letter, Sen. Cornyn and 11 of his Senate colleagues also requested a detailed analysis of the agency's process for the approval and renewal of a tax-exempt designation under section 501(c)(4).
