Even Tom Harkin thinks IRS should be investigated.
The old liberal lion also sees the IRS investigation should continue. One wonders what afoot on this. Usually when a politican gets out of character like that it means their phone is ringing off the hook on a issue. Also, perhaps Harkin is seeing what a bureaucratic monster that has been created, with his colleague Chuck Grassley even being targeted as a possible audit. Even the Mafia knows you leave a rival`s family out of retaliation.
Re: Even Tom Harkin thinks IRS should be investigated.
It means he's paving the way for Bradley. He's not going to spend any real effort on this. It's how Democrats always react, they find out if there's enough votes to overcome legislation they don't like and then they vote for it in their area so as to say,"look I voted against it!"
This is the same thing, Harkin knows Democrats won't pursue this so he can safely be in favor of it.
