I totally agree with Rep. Jason Chaffetz that whoever is found guilty of abusing their power at the Internal Revenue Service should be prosecuted and sentenced to prison ("IRS officials should be jailed for tea party scandal, Chaffetz said," Tribune, May 14).

I suggest that Chaffetz begin legal proceedings against former President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney for war crimes, lying to the American people and starting a needless war that has cost our country and the world untold pain and suffering.

Never mind. Just remembered that they are Republicans.
