During Tuesday’s Senate hearings into the widening IRS scandal, Senator Ron Wyden (OR-D) suggested that the conservative groups, targeted for paralyzing IRS harassment and leaks to the left-wing media, had it coming.
Wyden said that if political groups don’t want hassles from the government, they shouldn’t go to government for tax exempt status.
