"Abandon this proposed rule," 11 top Republicans said in a
letter signed by House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner
and sent to Internal Revenue Service Commissioner John Koskinen.
"Finalizing this proposed rule would make intimidation and
harassment of the administration's political opponents the
official policy of the IRS," the letter said.
The demand was the latest jab by Republicans at the Obama
administration in a fight over IRS treatment of conservative
political pressure groups organized under tax code Section 501
