U.S. Senator Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) released the following statement tonight regarding President Obama's announcement that IRS Acting Director Steven Miller has resigned:
"While this is an obvious first step, it doesn't eliminate the need for a thorough, bipartisan investigation. Targeting specific types of political groups for extra scrutiny represents a serious abuse of power, and we need to get to the bottom of what happened to hold wrong-doers accountable and make sure this never happens again. The American people rightfully expect to be treated fairly and impartially by their government, and I am hopeful that the president will make good on his promise to work with Congress to provide answers."
