The crime of false impersonation is defined by federal statutes and by state statutes that differ from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. Most state laws also provide that the impersonation of a public official is a criminal act.

Since I feel you need more information on the IRS scandal, you may want to visit my thread for a very recent update. I have 100% proof of the IRS targeting continuing on May 6, 2013. Pease check out my last post in that thread. On May 6, 2013, Linchpins of Liberty's, received a 3 page letter from the IRS. A half of a page alone asks questions about books they read and distributed. Along with the authors names. Etc.. Etc.. Etc.. The information they are requesting 2 years into their request for non profit status, will take your breath away. My post provides an actual IRS letter for your reading pleasure.
Proof! The Whitehouse Lied! IRS Targeting Continued 1 Year Past Investigation Cessation
After the Supreme Court's Citizens United decision, it became possible for a 501(c)(4) organization to engage in unlimited amounts of political spending. It thus also became possible for a political organization to use the tax law to hide the identity of donors. After Citizens United, the abuse the IRS is tasked with policing is whether an organization that claims to be a "social welfare" organization is in reality a political organization in disguise.
So the IRS, when faced with a deluge of new applications for 501(c)(4) status, rightly had to decide whether some or many of these groups were actually political organizations, tax-exempt under section 527, and so subject to disclosure rules.
Primarily for reasons of campaign finance law, the IRS has been put in the position of deciding whether a group is primarily political. This is not a job the IRS is good at or ever will be good at. And as we have seen, it is not a job that we want the IRS to have.
