Tea Party targeting not disclosed by IRS
WASHINGTON - by Associated Press
Congress was not told that tea party groups were being inappropriately targeted by the Internal Revenue Service, even after acting agency Commissioner Steven T. Miller had been briefed on the matter.
Watch KFDM News at 6 and we'll investigate to uncover more about the story.
The IRS said Monday that Miller was first informed on May, 3, 2012, that applications for tax-exempt status by tea party groups were inappropriately singled out for extra scrutiny.
At least twice after the briefing, Miller wrote letters to members of Congress to explain the process of reviewing applications for tax-exempt status without disclosing that tea party groups had been targeted.
On July 25, 2012, Miller testified before the House Ways and Means oversight subcommittee but again did not talk about that issue -- despite being asked about it.
