During Ways And Means Hearing, House Dems Can’t Find Liberal IRS Victim

June 4, 2013 by  

Some Democrats rushing to the Internal Revenue Service’s defense after reports of the agency’s unfair targeting of conservative groups alleged that IRS officials were simply doing their jobs by vetting organizations applying for nonprofit status and that the IRS had also targeted liberal groups.

But the scene that unraveled during a House Ways and Means Committee hearing about the scandal Tuesday told a different story. Of six witnesses called to testify about their groups’ experiences dealing with the IRS, no liberals were present.

“I do want to note that the minority was given the opportunity to call up a witness but did not present a witness that had been affected by taxpayer activity, by IRS activity, so that’s why there is no minority witness at the table today,” Ways and Means Representative Chairman David Camp (R-Mich.) said at the hearing.
