Democratic lawmakers on the Senate Finance Committee said Tuesday the IRS, while engaging in "unacceptable" targeting of conservative groups, may have been set up for failure by campaign finance law ambiguities that allowed tax-exempt groups to engage in partisan politics without disclosing their donors.
The chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee on Friday said the IRS scandal shows a "culture of cover-ups" and "political intimidation" within the Obama administration.
Senior Internal Revenue Service officials knew agents were targeting tea party groups as early as 2011, according to a draft of an inspector general's report obtained by The Associated Press that seemingly contradicts public statements by the IRS commissioner.
Just days before the national tax-filing deadline, the Internal Revenue Service chief warned Thursday that congressional delay on expiring tax-break provisions could lead to "total confusion" among working Americans.
On Thursday, Mr. Grassley, the Finance Committee's ranking member, asked Internal Revenue Service Commissioner Douglas Shulman to explain how the agency audits organizations such as ACORN "where the movement of money appears to be a shell game."
