Senate Democrat Claire McCaskill: Fire Everyone Involved in Obama’s IRS Scandal
Let’s be honest: There’s not a single Democrat in Congress who cares if the Obama Administration uses the IRS to target its political enemies. We’re the bad guys to them and they’re willing to do anything they can get away with to stick it to us.
That’s why NOBODY at the IRS had been punished for this scandal before it went public and blew up like a nuclear bomb.
However, the situation has now changed because the scandal is getting traction with the public. That means this could hurt the Democrat Party.
So, that leaves them with two options: They can either play this off as a “distraction” that’s being overblown or alternately, they can call for strong action against the bad actors at the IRS to try to give the public the false impression that they care.
Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-MO, issued a video statement Friday in response to reports that the Internal Revenue Service unfairly targeted conservative nonprofit groups.
“I’m mad. It is un-American, it is wrong, and we have to make sure that this gets fixed,” Missouri’s senior senator said. “There’s a reason Lady Justice wears a blindfold in America. That is because in America, we don’t apply the law based on who you are, who you know, or what you believe. We apply the law equally.”
McCaskill went on to say that the targeting of one group based on political beliefs “infuriates” her.
“We should not only fire the head of the IRS, which has occurred, but we’ve got to go down the line and find every single person who had anything to do with this and make sure that they are removed from the IRS and the word goes out that this is unacceptable,” she said. “It is un-American, it is wrong, and it cannot occur again.”
This sort of statement is VERY PROBLEMATIC for liberals who want to sweep this scandal under the rug because of the way the media works in the modern world.
People assume that most of the news they’re getting has a slant to it, so they tend to tune it out. However, when people who aren’t the usual suspects start criticizing their own side, it catches the public’s attention. Usually, it’s the Republicans who are falling all over each other to do this, but this time there are Democrats involved and if anyone tells you this is no big deal, you can now say that even Claire McCaskill admits this is a big deal.
