IRS3The Internal Revenue Service campaign to target the political speech of conservative groups has been going on not since the 2012 election campaign, which has been documented abundantly, but since only months after President Obama first took office, claims a non-profit legal advocacy group.  The Thomas More Society of Chicago said it’s been fighting the feared federal agency on behalf of clients since 2009. “For at least four years, discrimination against pro-life and conservative groups by the IRS was taking place under the direction of Lois Lerner,” said Tom Brejcha, president and chief counsel of the Thomas More Society. “It is high time that a detailed investigation be conducted, and it is our hope that it will not only uncover but also help remedy the corruption within the government office of Internal Revenue Service,” Brejcha said. WND reported last week that the Republican-controlled House Oversight and Government Reform Committee was focusing on Lerner, the former director of tax-exempt organizations at the IRS, as the culprit in the administration scandal targeting conservative organizations.
