Democrats ask IRS to target conservative groups


You know Democrats are in trouble when they start flat-out asking the IRS to harass conservative groups raising money for their opponents.

Of course, they don’t frame it that way.

Senate Democrats facing tough elections this year want the Internal Revenue Service to play a more aggressive role in regulating outside groups expected to spend millions of dollars on their races.

In the wake of the IRS targeting scandal, the Democrats are publicly prodding the agency instead of lobbying them directly. They are also careful to say the IRS should treat conservative and liberal groups equally, but they’re concerned about an impending tidal wave of attack ads funded by GOP-allied organizations. Much of the funding for those groups is secret, in contrast to the donations lawmakers collect, which must be reported publicly.

This feels like Deja Vu in the wake of the last IRS scandal. Democrats aren’t even trying to hide their willingness to cut corners and use government harassment to protect their seats.
