Unbelievable: Senate democrats kill bill prohibiting political targeting by IRS...

Democrats have no shame. It's anything goes when it comes to politics.

Via Liberty Unyielding:
Ten Democrat senators — none up for re-election this year — killed a measure to prohibit political discrimination by IRS employees.
The Senate Judiciary Committee defeated an amendment by Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas. Titled “Intentional Discrimination by Employees of the Internal Revenue Service,” the measure stated:
“(a) Offense. — It shall be unlawful for any officer of the Internal Revenue Service to, regardless of whether the officer or employee is acting under the color of law, willfully act with the intent to injure, oppress, threaten, intimidate or single out and subject to undue scrutiny for purposes of harassment any person or organization of any state –
“(1) based solely or primarily on the political, economic or social positions held or expressed by the person or organization; or
“2) because the person or organization has expressed a particular political, economic, or social position using any words of writing allowed by law.”
The senators — all Democrats — who voted to kill Cruz’s amendment were:
  • Patrick Leahy of Vermont
  • Dianne Feinstein of California
  • Charles Schumer of New York
  • Richard Durbin of Illinois
  • Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island
  • Amy Klobuchar and Al Franken of Minnesota
  • Chris Coons of Delaware
  • Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut
  • Mazie Hirono of Hawaii
