Mich. AG Calls for Special Prosecutor to Investigate IRS, DOJ Scandals

Mich. AG Calls for Special Prosecutor to Investigate IRS, DOJ Scandals

Attorney General Bill Schuette (pictured) has called on President Barack Obama to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the widening political scandal engulfing the United States Internal Revenue Service in the wake of allegations that the IRS targeted certain non-profit groups simply because of their political beliefs.

Schuette says coupled with the secret targeting of reporters’ phone calls, the recently exposed actions are chilling examples of a federal government bent on silencing opposition voices.

According to the A.G, a special prosecutor is necessary to ensure an independent investigation that uncovers the extent of the IRS activities because it would seem unlikely that low-level IRS staffers decided to target these groups on their own.

Schuette is also encouraging any Michigan organizations that believe they were unfairly targeted to contact his office which will provide the information to Michigan Congressman Dave Camp, the Chair of the House Ways and Means Committee, for his review.
