Rand Paul: IRS Personnel Should be Fired Over Targeting Flap

By    |   Tuesday, 14 May 2013 01:08 PM

Heads must roll at the IRS over the targeting of conservative groups, says Sen. Rand Paul.

"I’m not sure who goes, but it surely should be investigated," the Kentucky Republican said Tuesday on Fox News.

"Anybody who was aware of and approved of targeting people for their political beliefs and speech needs to be fired -- never in this position again and made an example of."

The IRS has acknowledged subjecting tea party and other conservative groups to higher scrutiny than usual in determining whether to grant them tax-exempt status.

"What I find inexcusable is if the president really is outraged by this, someone should lose their job. ... What kind of government allows you to not be fired?" Paul said.

"Same with Benghazi. No one was ever fired. They were transferred and moved around," he continued, referring to the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on the U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya, where Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans were killed.
