EDITORIAL: IRS scandal

(Toledo News Now) -

The IRS scandal makes it awfully difficult to believe that anything matters to people in power more than retaining that power. 

Sadly, it seems the higher the elected office, the more entitled the office holder becomes; and the more removed from what life is really all about in middle America. 

Regardless of your political leanings, the abusive and outrageous behavior of the IRS targeting of conservative groups should infuriate you. If you think it is okay to harass, fine and intimidate conservative groups into silence, then where do you draw the line?   And if you think it is okay for powerful elected officials to sanction these immoral activities, then what is unacceptable? 

And I am so tired of the feigned innocence and indignation while offering up low-level sacrificial lambs who get fired or whatever.  Something is profoundly wrong.  It should not be glossed over.
