Using the IRS to investigate enemies has been SOP for Presidents, Congress and law enforcement for many years. It’s ultimately how they bagged Al Cappone.
But the fact the DeLay’s political ronies used it to harass Texans for Public Justice just becuase they questioned DeLay’s campaign finance is beyond despicable.
I hope Mr. DeLay serves a nice long sentence at Club Fed because if there’s one thing I cannot stomach is when a politician uses said power to menace those critical of them. By that measure, I’ve been openly critical of the Republican leadership in Congress, the President and even local politicians so I’m more than likely sure I’ve been looked at by various agencies in the past and present. That I haven’t positive knowledge of the fact is even more scary.
