Dear Obama Administration,

Whereas the IRS has shown a pattern of deliberately targeting conservative groups;

Whereas IRS officials have repeatedly stymied Congressional efforts to investigate their actions, and now claim to have lost most relevant e-mails;

Whereas Heritage Action CEO Mike Needham says, “Whether it is incompetence or malfeasance, we cannot trust anything the Obama administration says about this scandal going forward.”

Whereas Needham points out that “the IRS’s actions are the absolute core of despotism: an unchecked, unaccountable bureaucracy using immense authority to terrify American citizens while pursuing a blatantly partisan agenda.”

I, the undersigned believe it is time to audit the IRS and hold this massive agency accountable.

The American people deserve better.
