The IRS, in its zeal to block the legal political activity of conservative groups, has still not come clean. The agency is out of control, and needs serious reform, and ought to be shuttered, its services provided in some other way.

IRS officials are still trying to claim that the targeting of 292 Tea Party groups is nothing special because the IRS also turned its icy gaze on 6 progressive groups. It isn’t clear that any of the progressive or liberal groups actually received any heightened scrutiny.
Items of interest:
- IRS official Lois Lerner waived her Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination when she pleaded her innocence before trying to invoking it.
- Another Senior IRS manager, Greg Roseman, did invoke the Fifth Amendment rather than testify to a House committee.
- The Linchpins of Liberty provide a detailed account of questions the IRS asked them
- Public interest lawyer Cleta Mitchell noted that as of mid-May, the IRS was still harassing conservative groups.
Now the second wave of IRS testimony has shown contradictions. Someone is lying.
