Sen. Cotton Urges IRS Investigation of SPLC
Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton is going on the offensive against the Southern Poverty Law Center. The Republican is asking for an IRS investigation to re-evaluate the legal group's tax-exempt status, based on the grounds that the SPLC works less for the sake of civil rights, and more for the sake of progressive politics.
Cotton noted, "Recent
news reports have confirmed the long-established fact that the SPLC regularly
engages in defamation of its political opponents. In fact, the SPLC's defining
characteristic is to fund-raise off of defamation."
