GOP Senate Leader McConnell Mentions NOM's IRS Leak in Speech on First Amendment Threats


Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell spoke Friday at the American Enterprise Institute on the growing threats to the First Amendment rights of Americans. As part of that speech he mentioned the IRS leak of NOM's private tax information for political purposes:

"The head of one national advocacy group has released documents which show that his group's confidential IRS information found its way into the hands of a staunch critic on the Left who also happens to be a co-chairman of President Obama's re-election committee. The only way this information could have been made public is if someone leaked it from inside the IRS."
