WASHINGTON, D.C. – On Sunday, May 12, 2013, U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) discussed the intentional targeting of groups based on their political leanings by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) on Fox News Channels’ America’s News HQ with Shannon Bream. Sen. Moran said the startling revelations harken back to the days of President Richard M. Nixon and must be investigated fully.
Highlights from Sen. Moran’s interview on Fox News Channel can be found below, along with a link to the video.
Sen. Moran: "This is not a conservative/liberal issue. All Americans ought to be interested that the applications for an IRS exemption are appropriately handled from a tax code point of view. But no American ought to be pleased that political information is being used for political purposes. It doesn't matter what your political stripes are – this is highly offensive. This harks back to days of President Nixon and the use of the IRS for political purposes. …We should see across the board, members of Congress trying to find out what the facts are, and if those facts demonstrate wrongdoing, heads should roll."
