‘Incredibly Ironic’: IRS Complaint Filed Against Professor Who Urged Feds to Use RICO Laws to Go After Global Warming Skeptics

Cause of Action, a government watchdog group, and the Competitive Enterprise Institute, a free market think tank, filed a joint IRS complaint Tuesday against the Institute of Global Environment and Society to have the organization stripped of its tax-exempt status.
