Court Rules IRS Violated Constitution in True the Vote Lawsuit

HOUSTON, TX - January 24, 2018 - True the Vote’s lawsuit against the Internal Revenue Service has resulted in a consent decree outlining egregious conduct by the agency. In the decree, United States District Judge Reggie Walton declared “discrimination on the basis of political viewpoint in administering the United States tax code violates fundamental First Amendment Rights.”

“Our consent decree is a stringent admonishment of the IRS’s admitted discrimination,” said True the Vote founder Catherine Engelbrecht, “but much more is needed to ensure that IRS employees engaging in unconstitutional conduct will face real, actionable penalties. We are working together with Senator John Cornyn, who will introduce legislation to ensure the rights of Americans are protected from rogue government employees whose discrimination and abuse has now been well documented in our court case.

I applaud the tireless efforts of our lawyers, in particular, James Bopp, who led the charge in this groundbreaking effort.”

Over 5,000 years and we still shouldn't trust the tax collectors.

It's about time we dismantled the IRS and the FBI.

Those IRS employees should be fired, not just reprimanded or suspended, FIRED.

That slap on the wrist might have hurt too much. So cruel.

When are all these guilty people going to suffer real consequences for their crimes?
