IRS didn't scrutinize just Tea Party types

Success - Article sent! close

Your March 6, Business Section, Page 1, states that "Lois Lerner headed the IRS division that improperly singled out Tea Party and other conservative groups for extra scrutiny ..."

This is only half true. The fact is that Lerner's division also scrutinized progressive groups. But we only hear about the IRS looking into the Tea Party and its ilk because they are the ones whining about that.

Congressman Darrelll Issa is the loudest of the whiners -- and he refuses to listen to any criticism of his continued waste of my taxpayer dollars chasing his foolish notion. And by merely echoing his mistaken claims your paper helps perpetuate this foolishness.
