The IRS Scandal, Day 526

IRS Logo 2Statesman Journal:  Wehby Attempts to Tie Sen. Jeff Merkley to IRS Scandal:

Republican Senate candidate Monica Wehby released a web video Thursday with the goal of tying Sen. Jeff Merkley to the scandal surrounding the Internal Revenue Service targeting tax-exempt groups for their political leanings.

The 35-second video entitled "Corrupt" explains that Merkley was one of several Democratic Senators who wrote a letter to the IRS in 2012 requesting the agency "immediately change the administrative framework for enforcement of the tax code as it applies to groups designated as 'social welfare' organizations." ... The ad lays that targeting of conservative groups at Merkley's feet and asks whether voters can trust him.

Who knows what the person's involvement was but by 2012, the time the letter was sent, the IRS had already engaged in the persecution of political dissidents for two years.
