Senator Blunt Blasts IRS For Egregiously Playing Politics, Targeting Conservative Groups

WASHINGTON, D.C. U.S. Senator Roy Blunt (Mo.) released the following statement today after the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) acknowledged it intentionally targeted conservative organizations during the 2012 elections:
