Sen. Moran: IRS Releasing Donor Info for Political Purposes

"Every American should expect even-handed treatment by the Internal Revenue Service - and that clearly is not the IRS or the Administration we have."

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.), a member of the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee with oversight over the U.S. Department of Treasury – of which the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is a bureau – today said the developing IRS scandal lends credibility to reports of politically-motivated donor information leaks at the IRS. Sen. Moran believes the leaks deserve a second look as one more facet of a scandal that is not going away anytime soon. The remarks were made at the weekly Senate Republican Leadership Press Conference.
