Gardner releases documents associated with IRS targeting of conservative groups

WASHINGTON D.C. – Congressman Cory Gardner (CO-04) is making public a request for additional information from the IRS to a Colorado-based grouped applying for 501(c)4 status.  Confidential and identifying information has been redacted.

“This document demonstrates the type of burdensome and politically motivated scrutiny placed on conservative groups,” Gardner said.  “This group also had its information illegally leaked to the media, which is an outrageous violation by IRS employees.  Those responsible must to be held accountable and fired.  Even that, however, will never fully right this wrong or make these groups whole again.”
