tea party groups
Sen. Ted Cruz said Attorney General Eric Holder should be impeached if he doesn’t indict former Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner, who is linked to the agency’s targeting of conservative groups.
The American Center for Law and Justice has filed a lawsuit on behalf of 25 conservative organizations in federal court. The lawsuit accuses Attorney General Eric Holder, Treasury Secretary Jack Lew and the IRS of targeting Tea Party groups in a “pervasive” and “organized scheme.”
The Internal Revenue Service official who led the unit that targeted tea party groups and publicly disclosed the activity has been replaced, making her the third top IRS official moved aside since the episode was revealed two weeks ago.
