"Senator Gardner'sapproach goes to the heart of the Hatch Act civil service protections thatensure the bureaucracy is not subject to undue political influence. The rise ofpublic employee unions as major contributors to the left has long been a threatto the political neutrality of the civil service system. The IRS' unprecedentedtargeting of conservative organizations and donors makes it all the moreimportant that Senator Gardner's brilliant legislation become law."
