IRS Targeting Scandal Reaches The WH, Obama-Appointed IRS Chief Counsel

quote:

The chief counsel’s office for the Internal Revenue Service, headed by a political appointee of President Obama, helped develop the agency’s problematic guidelines for reviewing “tea party” cases, according to a top IRS attorney.

In interviews with congressional investigators, IRS lawyer Carter Hull said his superiors told him that the chief counsel’s office, led by William Wilkins, would need to review applications that the agency had screened for additional scrutiny because of potential political activity.

Previous accounts from IRS employees had shown that Washington IRS officials were involved in the controversy, but Hull’s comments represent the closest connection to the White House to date.

According to a partial transcript released by House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), the chief counsel’s office also discussed using a template letter to ask questions about the groups’ activities, despite Hull’s warning that such a boilerplate approach would be impractical.

Is this the same Carter Hull that killed an unarmed black teenager after profiling him?

Cummings is still saying it was a low on the totem pole worker in Ohio.

There was a hearing today but the little bit I heard from it Cummings was screaming at the witnesses because they were all saying they don't recall. I guess someone finally recalled.

he was asked to send an application to a senior adviser to Lerner, something that had never before happened in his 48-year career. That claim had not been revealed publicly before Wednesday.

Michael Seto, the head of Hull’s unit, told investigators that Lerner told him that the Tea Party cases needed to undergo a “multi-tier review” that involved both her staff and the chief counsel’s office.
This might have some legs.

I was wondering when her name would find it's way back into this mess.

I love the fact that Cummings is looking slightly retarded right about now.

This reminds me of that line from The Rock.

"Great. We're not gutless...we're incompetent."
