House Republicans are weighing a major expansion of their investigation into the Internal Revenue Service's targeting of conservatives by looking into the audits of nonprofit groups, potentially opening another front in the scandal.
Conservatives gathered in Washington this week are increasingly relishing the prospect that the Republican presidential nomination fight will extend for months, and could even lead to a brokered convention in Tampa this summer.

"I know of many other conservative nonprofit organizations who were audited during this period, but who wish not to reveal their identities for fear of hurting their fundraising while donors lose confidence in the tax deductibility of their donations, or for fear of inviting further, extremely expensive, IRS scrutiny," said Mr. Blackwell, a Republican National Committee member from Virginia.
Mr. Blackwell said his institute, which trains young conservatives, also underwent an IRS audit in 1996 that costs his group $70,000 in attorney fees.
