New Questions About IRS Activities
An inspector general's report is expected to show the Internal Revenue Service spent about $50 million on conferences for employees between 2010 and 2012. It comes on the heels of three recently released videos showing IRS employees dancing and performing in "Star Trek" and "Gilligan’s Island" spoofs. Yesterday, Danny Werfel made his first appearance on Capitol Hill as acting commissioner of the IRS. He said those activities are “an unfortunate vestige from a prior era.” House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa has vowed to investigate that, as well as the targeting of conservative groups seeking tax exempt status. Diane and her guests discuss new questions about IRS activities.
