Doug Truax is taking the freedom of speech fight directly to lifetime politician Dick Durbin. From a Thursday Truax press release.
"U.S. Senate candidate Doug Truax (R-Downers Grove) personally delivered a letter to Dick Durbin's Springfield office yesterday formally asking the 32-year career politician whether he only asked the IRS to target conservative groups.
Durbin has acknowledged he sent an October 2010 letter to the IRS asking it to investigate the free expression rights of a politically conservative group under section 501(c)(4) of the tax code.
'Was Dick Durbin attempting to use the IRS as his personal secret police to intimidate the free expression rights of his political opponents, or did he evenly target other groups?' Truax said today. 'Illinois citizens have a right to know whether their Senator represents all of Illinois or only one political party.'"
