In spite of Justice Department claims, the House has obtained ample evidence that targeting of ideological groups for their political beliefs does exist. Our Constitution prohibits government from restricting speech and thought and, in particular, was designed to protect our citizenry from excessive force by the government for opposing views.

The House is investigating the Internal Revenue Service's (IRS) illegal targeting of conservative groups. My colleagues and I are fighting to protect groups that are exercising their First Amendment rights.  Click this link to see our efforts: www.gop.gov/irs/
