Wednesday at the House Oversight committee hearing Congressman Scott DesJarlais (R-TN) repeatedly asked IRS official Beth Tucker to condemn the agency’s coordinated practice of targeting of conservative groups.
She would not condemn the agency’s targeting of conservatives.
Via Greta Van Susteren:
Instead of condemning this practice, Tucker misrepresented the truth. She told the committee several different groups were targeted. This was not true. The Inspector General report in May confirmed that the agency was inappropriately targeting “conservative” groups. The IRS list allowed “progressive” groups to be approved on the spot while agents were told to send conservative applications to Washington DC.
