Dems will increase size of their campaign war chests with vote to double the size of the IRS

The IRS employee union is a major funder of the Democratic party. Senate Democrats will vote for a bill today to hire and deploy 87,000 new agents — a doubling of the size of the agency which will further swell Democrats’ political campaign war chests.

In the past decade, the IRS union has given $601,759 in PAC funding to Democrat party committees.

All data is pulled from OpenSecrets:

The IRS employee union gives 100% of its PAC funding to Democrats in the 2022 cycle, including:

$30,000 to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee

$30,000 to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee

$30,000 to the DNC Services Corporation, an entity tasked with “coordinating party organizational activities.”

The IRS employee union prioritized political donations to Democrats who happen to be in 2022 battleground races:

$5,000 to Raphael Warnock (D-Ga.)

$10,000 to Maggie Hassan (D-N.H.)

$5,000 to Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.)

$1,000 to Mark Kelly (D-Ariz.)

The IRS employee union gives 98.79% of its federal candidate spending to Democrats, including:

Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.)

Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn.)

Joaquin Castro (D-Texas)

Peter DeFazio (D-Ore.)

Over the next decade, doubling the size of the IRS will prove lucrative for the Democrat party.
