Criticism of IRS grows amid allegations of targeting beyond Tea Party

IRS-sign-front_640What started as a scandal over the IRS’s targeting of conservative groups has broadened, with lawmakers and other critics now questioning whether other kinds of organizations were unfairly flagged for additional scrutiny.

He made no specific allegation, but said that lawmakers’ investigations to date prompted the letter.

Indeed, the scope of the IRS’ heavy auditing and scrutiny appears to go beyond Tea Party groups.
