CREW: IRS: Investigate the American Action Network: 3/8/11

On March 8, 2011, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) asked the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to investigate whether the American Action Network (AAN) has violated tax law. While AAN - chaired by former Republican Senator Norm Coleman - is organized as a tax-exempt organization under section 501(c)(4) of the tax code, it spent tens of millions of dollars persuading Americans to vote against Democratic congressional candidates in the 2010 elections.
