IRS Chief ‘Can’t Remember’ Who Was Responsible for Tea Party Targeting

by Andrew Johnson

Acting IRS commissioner Steven Miller said indicated he did not know who was responsible for the targeting of conservative groups by IRS agents. ”I don’t have that name, sir,” he told GOP congressman Dave Reichert in today’s House Ways and Means Committee hearing on the scandal, which came to light last Friday. 

Reichert persisted, “Did you ask anybody?” 

“Yes,” Miller responded — he asked the senior technical adviser, Nancy Marks. 

“And what did Nancy tell you, who’s responsible?” Reichert asked. 

“That I don’t remember, to be honest with you,” Miller said.
