Congressmen demand Eric Holder appoint special prosecutor to investigate IRS scandals

Attention surrounding the IRS’s illegal, politically-motivated attacks on conservative 501(c)(4) non-profits has reached new heights in recent days, following two high-profile Congressional hearings and now demands from both houses of Congress for Eric Holder to live up to the historic responsibility of Attorney General to uphold the law of the land without regard to political expediency.

Senator Ted Cruz sent a letter to United States Attorney General Eric Holder demanding the appointment of a independent special prosecutor to further investigate the IRS’s illegal targeting of conservative groups.

In the House of Representatives, NetRight Daily has ascertained a letter currently circulating within Congressional offices asking members to co-sign the demand for Eric Holder to appoint an independent prosecutor.

Americans for Limited Government president Nathan Mehrens echoed Congressional Republicans’ call for the appointment of an independent special persecutor:

“Last year, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal called for a special counsel to investigate and prosecute these egregious abuses of power that threaten the fabric of our representative democracy.  That call was echoed today by Representative Trey Gowdy of South Carolina.  It is clear that the Justice Department is stonewalling any legitimate investigation and there is no longer any excuse for denying a legitimate independent investigation of these blatant attacks on the fundamental right to dissent.

“To force the issue, Congress using its power of the purse should stop all attempts by the IRS to impose new regulations governing social welfare groups, and additionally force a full investigation into these abuses by a special counsel.”
