‘Go to Jail’: Bobby Jindal Says IRS Officials Deserve Prison for Targeting Conservatives

“You cannot take the freedom of law-abiding Americans, whether you disagree with them or not, and keep your own freedom,” Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal will tell delegates at the Virginia GOP convention today, according to remarks shared with Politico.

“When you do that, you go to jail.”

Jindal, a 2016 presidential hopeful, is slated to speak to about 10,000 Republican in Richmond and say that a probe should “go from the top down.”

Of President Obama, Jindal will assert that “when you grow government this big, these kinds of scandals are inevitable, and he bears the responsibility for that.”

“The President of the United States must have the moral authority to go around the globe and call out tyranny when he sees it. He must be able to be freedom’s evangelist. He cannot do that if he tolerates basic constitutional violations right under his own nose.”

“It won’t do to have a few lower-level staffers in the Tucson field office lose their executive washroom privileges,” he’s reportedly planning on saying. “This is much bigger than that.”

Jindal is looking to couple the IRS scandal with the Benghazi terror attack, the Associated Press phone records flap, and Obamacare.
