After reading Richard Burt's letter and listening to numerous liberals and Obama supporters try to spin the issue of the IRS scandal, I think we need a reminder of what this is about ("Congress' hypocrisy," June 10). Whether or not the groups should have received the coveted 501c4 status is aside from the point. Instead of simply denying their requests, the IRS decided to commit a full interrogation of these groups. They asked questions that are completely inappropriate of a government agency to ask.
Along with the implications of the tax enforcement agency engaging in political profiling, Sen. Mike Lee and Congress are well within their right to take the IRS and whoever else was engaged in this scandal to task.
