chipbaltimorecampaign(DES MOINES) – In light of recent news reports regarding politically-motivated targeting by the Internal Revenue Service, Iowa House Judiciary Chairman Chip Baltimore (R-Boone) today called on any Iowa 501(c)(4) organization that believes it has been unjustly targeted by the Internal Revenue Service to contact him, email [email protected].

“Freedom of association and speech are among the most foundational rights of our republic, and the politically-motivated targeting of Americans by the IRS is a blatant betrayal of the public trust. Attempts by an overreaching federal government to silence voices of dissent are not only un-American, they must not be tolerated and those responsible must be held to account,” said Baltimore. “As investigators continue probing the IRS misconduct, I urge any targeted Iowan or Iowa organization to come forward and make their voice heard.”

Baltimore said that he will work with any targeted Iowan to ensure they are connected with appropriate congressional oversight investigators to ensure any facts pertaining to the IRS scandal are heard.
