While the scandal with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) targeting conservative and tea party groups continues in the news, it should be pointed out what kind of disgrace it is to target conservatives like this just for their beliefs ("Senate widens probe into IRS," May 21).
With each developing scandal, the picture of an arrogant administration abusing its power grows clearer. The IRS is feared, loathed and resented. Thus, the IRS tends to attract all too many workers who are insensitive to the needs and problems of others, and some even enjoy being bullies. The tax code is so complex that no individual can understand it, including those who work for the IRS.
The individuals in the IRS responsible for this criminal conduct need to be called to justice and punished for these misdeeds. I can attest myself that I been targeted recently by the IRS because of my conservative views, tea party associations and letter writing.
