GOP SENATOR: Obama Must Apologize For ‘Absolutely Chilling’ IRS Targeting Of Tea Party Groups
May 12, 2013
U.S. Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) said Sunday that the IRS’ admission of targeting various conservative groups for extra scrutiny was “absolutely chilling,” and she called on President Barack Obama to apologize.
“This is truly outrageous and it contributes to the profound distrust that the American people have in government,” Collins said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
“It is absolutely chilling that the IRS was singling out conservative groups for extra review, and I think it’s very disappointing that the president hasn’t personally condemned this and spoken out.”
