Congressional Probe Hints IRS Targeting Has Larger Scope

Isn’t it interesting that our government keeps doing stupid things, lying about it, then getting caught telling lies. An example follows, excerpted from a longer article on Yahoo:

. . . two agents in the IRS’s Cincinnati office say they believe their work was being closely monitored by higher-ups in Washington. One agent, Elizabeth Hofacre, complained to investigators that she was being micromanaged by Washington when she processed applications for tax-exempt status by tea party groups, according to a transcript of her interview with investigators.

Her interview suggests a long trail of emails that could support her claim. . . .
