IRS audits moderate group with GOP ties; Issa says scrutiny known in D.C.

Two weeks before news broke that the IRS had targeted conservative groups for special scrutiny of their tax-exempt applications, a moderate GOP organization received word it was being audited — a move its organizers said suggests the tax agency’s scrutiny included non-tea party political groups.

Meanwhile the House’s top investigator, Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell E. Issa, released partial transcripts Sunday of interviews with IRS employees that the congressman said show officials in Washington were aware of the scrutiny.

The uneven scrutiny was “a problem that was coordinated in all likelihood right out of Washington headquarters and we’re getting to proving it,” said Mr. Issa, California Republican, on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

“My gut tells me that too many people knew this wrongdoing was going on before the election and at least by some sort of convenient, benign neglect allowed it to go on through the election,” Mr. Issa said. “I’m not making any allegations as to motive, that they set out to do it. But certainly people knew it was happening.”
