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

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?”

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

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