Gwinnett Daily Post | POLITICAL NOTEBOOK: Leaders upset about IRS revelation

Many of Gwinnett’s representatives in Congress were up in arms last week, about the IRS admission that conservative groups were targeted for additional screening.

“It is no wonder that more Americans are losing faith in their federal government as incidents like this one continue to arise,” U.S. Rep. Rob Woodall, R-Lawrenceville, said. “We don’t need more spin; we need serious answers about fixing this administration’s mistakes. Daily, the fibers of trust between government and the American people continue to be torn. Weary of apologies, citizens deserve better.”

“The President promised that his would be the ‘most transparent administration in history,’ so let’s end the spin and the cover-ups and lay the facts bare for all citizens to consider.”

Next week, Woodall will be directly involved in the issue, when the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee holds a hearing Wednesday.

U.S. Sen. Johnny Isakson took action last week, co-sponsoring two pieces of legislation in response to the controversy.
