Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) will begin hearings this week focusing on the corruption at the IRS, and in advance of those hearings he’s released some statements from the depositions taken from IRS employees. Per the depositions, the targeting of conservatives wasn’t exactly something a few IRS employees took it upon themselves to do in the

Did The IRS Promote Anti-Tea Party Bully?
