ACLJ Asking More Questions About IRS Targeting Conservatives

A Christian law firm that defends religious freedom and the Constitution finds it suspicious that President Obama opposes an independent counsel dealing with the Internal Revenue Service scandal.

Hearings continued on Capitol Hill as lawmakers strive to get answers about why the IRS singled out tea party groups and other conservative organizations for additional reviews during last year’s presidential election season.

Jordan Sekulow is executive director of the American Center for Law and Justice, which represents 27 tea party organizations who were targeted. He says it is ridiculous that IRS officials continue to claim that they were not politically motivated to strictly audit the conservative groups to see if they were violating their tax-exempt status.
