"This is pretty straightforward. If, in fact, IRS personnel engaged in the kind of practices that have been reported on and were intentionally targeting conservative groups, then that's outrageous, and there is no place for it." - President Barack Obama, at a joint press conference with British Prime Minister David Cameron. Conservative groups, many affiliated with the Tea Party, claim they were targeted by the IRS during the 2012 election for investigations to see if they were violating tax-exempt status, the Associated Press reports. The Treasury Department's inspector general is expected to release a final report of the yearlong investigation into these claims this week.
News to know
Dr. Kermit Gosnell, a Pittsburgh abortion provider, was found guilty of three charges of first-degree murder and one charge of manslaughter today, according to CNN. The first-degree murder charges mean Gosnell, who is not a board-certified obstetrician or gynecologist, is eligible for the death penalty. Gosnell was accused of performing unliscensed abortions, including killing some infants who were alive and viable during the sixth, seventh and eigth months of pregnancy. The involuntary manslaughter conviction comes from the death of Karnamaya Mongar, who died of an anesthetic overdose during a second-trimester abortion as Gosnell's clinic. Gosnell was also found guilty of 21 counts of abortion of the unborn, 24 weeks and over.
