Congressman Heck Statement on the Resignation of the Acting Director of the IRS

May 16, 2013

WASHINGTON - Congressman Joe Heck (NV-03) today released the following statement on the resignation of the Acting Director of the Internal Revenue Service.

"The resignation of the acting director is a positive first step in addressing the issue of the IRS systematically targeting conservative groups. However, reports indicate that the trouble goes deeper than just one person. I hope that in the days and weeks ahead there will be a thorough effort to not only hold all responsible individuals accountable but also put in place the proper protections so that the IRS never again improperly targets certain individuals or groups based on their beliefs."
