Former U.S. Rep. Joe Walsh was among several Tea Party candidates elected in 2010. He says conservatives can prove that election wasn't a fluke by fighting back and winning seats in 2014.

Walsh says the IRS' actions were "crimes committed against Americans."

The former Internal Revenue Service chief told a Senate committee Tuesday he doesn't know why his agency targeted Tea Party and other conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status. Douglas Shulman served from March 2008 until November 2012, when the targeting occurred.
