The IRS Scandal, Day 515

IRS Logo 2Red State:  IRS Cover-Up: IG Report Exposes IRS Lying to American Public, by Matthew Clark:

A new Inspector General (IG) report general report exposes yet more abuse and cover-up at the IRS. As the Washington Examiner reports:

A review of the Internal Revenue Service’s compliance with the Freedom of Information Act found the agency intentionally withheld or failed to “adequately search” for requested information in hundreds of cases.

In others, the IRS released more than it was authorized, dispensing “sensitive taxpayer information,” including individuals’ bank records.

Many of the FOIA requests centered around, you guessed it, the IRS targeting scandal.

The cover-up is stunning.  “The IRS concealed information it should have released in response to an estimated 336 requests in 2013, according to the report.”

In response to a report (from the same IG’s office) detailing the IRS targeting scandal, the American public demanded to know the truth.  The American people sent in numerous FOIA requests, and the IRS concealed pertinent information at least 336 times.

If that’s not a cover-up I don’t know what is.
