FRANKFORT, Ky. (5/13/13) – U.S. Rep. Ed Whitfield, (KY-01), Chairman of the House Subcommittee on Energy and Power, today released the following statement regarding the IRS’ recent acknowledgement that they targeted conservative groups during last year’s national election.
“The fact that the IRS would target groups based solely on their political persuasions is a shameful abuse of government resources. I join Senator McConnell’s call for a government-wide investigation to ensure that no other agencies under the authority of the Executive Branch are abusing taxpayer dollars by engaging in the political witch hunts like the ones we have seen from the IRS.”
