Two IRS employees in Cincinnati have told congressional investigators that officials in Washington directed and established the policy of harassing conservative groups that began in 2010.

I especially like this quote:

Hofacre said she was outraged last month when IRS higher-ups, including Lois Lerner, then the head of the IRS tax-exempt division, blamed the problem on employees in Cincinnati. “I was furious,” Ms. Hofacre told interviewers. “It looked like Lois Lerner was putting it on us.”

Yup, that is exactly what Lerner was doing — looking for a fall guy.

    Stuff rolls down hill, usually from the top! this administration as transparent as it has been makes Clinton look like a conservative, (he was from conservative), Teflon coating this good only comes from a media that is complicit in the scandals that they are totally ignoring, I as a citizen who votes a certain way wonders how health care will be administered by this nonpolitical IRS!
