ATF: 'Wish I Had Better Answers' About ATF Agents Probing a Tea Partier
'It's unfortunate that you and Miss Engelbrecht think it's harassment. From our perspective, it's part of a regulatory function'

ATF Director: 'Wish I Had Better Answers' About ATF Agents Probing a Tea Party Conservative (CNS News)

B. Todd Jones, director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, couldn't tell Congress why his agents made two visits to a tea party conservative in a 13-month period -- but only after she requested tax-exempt status for her conservative group, True the Vote.

Catherine Engelbrecht had a Federal Firearms License (FFL) for 12 years. "And suddenly she applies for tax exempt status, and you're knocking on her door twice in 13 months," Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) told Jones at a hearing on Wednesday.

"Congressman, I wish I had better answers," Jones said.
