The IRS assault on the First Amendment: A short course

The Heritage Foundation has just posted the video (below) of the great program on the IRS assault on the First Amendment that Paul and I attended on Friday over the lunch hour. Moderated by Heritage’s Hans von Spakovsky, the panel included Washington superlawyer Cleta Mitchell, former FEC chairman Brad Smith, NRO media editor Eliana Johnson and the Wall Street Journal’s Kim Strassel.

Heritage’s somewhat understated description of the program is here. After von Spakovsky’s introductions, Cleta Mitchell leads off the panel presentation with a bang — as the man from Men’s Wearhouse used to say, I guarantee it — but the program warrants your time and attention all the way to the end. This is important.
