Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz tweeted a photograph Monday of a Virginia license plate with the motto “RIP IRS.”
Cruz tweeted the image, which was captured by the conservative blog Legal Insurrection, along with his own statement, “Like this license plate?”

Cruz, who was recently described by Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid as “the very junior senator from Texas,” has taken an active role in criticizing the IRS’ conduct. Cruz spoke to great fanfare at the “Abolish the IRS” rally in Washington, D.C. on June 19.
As The Daily Caller reported, at least five different IRS offices across the country improperly targeted conservative groups, demanding information on conservative college interns and even the content of a religious group’s prayers.
