Maybe you’ve heard of the most recent scandal to hit D.C., (in addition to the Benghazi scandal). Then again, maybe you haven’t. In case you missed it, the IRS is being accused of intentionally targeting conservative groups for extra auditing scrutiny. Specifically, it has been rumored that the IRS went after groups that opposed Obama’s re-election in 2012 and the abuse of power may have started as early as 2011. The reason this is, as members of Congress are saying, chilling, is that it is a direct affront to free speech and religious freedom.
It is this kind of abuse of power and infringement of rights that the Family Policy Council of West Virginia seeks to curb in Charleston. It’s absurd to think that such abuses are not happening in our own state, and we aim to be the “watchmen on the wall” keeping an eye out in order to sound the alarm when it happens. Just this year we sounded the alarm on language in discrimination bills that would have infringed on the religious rights of many West Virginian’s. While we don’t have much control over what happens in Washington, other than our election votes, we are able to be more involved in Charleston and promise to stay alert.
