Jay Sekulow Says Obama Must Do More On IRS


The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), which represents nearly 30 Tea Party organizations nationwide, said the announcement by President Obama accepting the resignation of acting IRS Commissioner Steven Miller does not go far enough.

“President Obama continues to fail to show leadership as this IRS scandal continues to expand,” said: Jay: Sekulow, Chief Counsel of the ACLJ. “The resignation of acting IRS Commissioner Steven Miller does not solve any of the problems of this tainted and politically-driven agency. The announcement comes just hours after the IRS attempted to blame this abhorrent conduct on a couple of rogue IRS agents out of the Cincinnati office. The American people and our clients deserve much more. There are many questions that President Obama failed to address including why his Attorney General is heading up this investigation. The fact is an independent counsel needs to be appointed – with no ties or allegiance to this president. The IRS scheme to target conservative groups because of their thoughts and ideological positions is both unconscionable and intolerable. It is also actionable. We continue to move forward in preparing a federal lawsuit on behalf of our clients – a complaint that could be filed as early as next week.”

The: ACLJ: represents 27 Tea Party organizations targeted by the IRS. Fifteen have received tax-exempt status. Ten are still pending and the subject of a: demand letter: sent to the IRS — demanding that those clients by granted tax-exempt status immediately.

The IRS contends this intimidation strategy was confined to “low-level” employees out of its office in Cincinnati. The fact is that the ACLJ’s clients have received letters from Cincinnati, but also from two offices in California, El Monte and Laguna Niguel as well as the national office in Washington, D.C.
