Rep. Sander Levin Dodges Questions About IRS Scandal, Blames Koch Brothers
House Dem Repeatedly Dodges Questions to Explain IRS Targeting (Washington Free Beacon)
Rep. Sander Levin (D., Mich.) repeatedly dodged Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace’s questions about whether he could explain the IRS’ targeting of 100 percent of conservative-named groups last year compared to just 30 percent of liberal or progressive ones.
President Obama gave what Wallace called a “clean bill of health” to the agency when he was interviewed by Bill O’Reilly on Super Bowl Sunday, saying there wasn’t even a “smidgeon of corruption” at the IRS. This week, former official Lois Lerner was held in contempt by the House Oversight committee for refusing to testify at two panel hearings, and ranking Democrat Rep. Elijah Cummings (D., Md.) was accused of prompting the IRS to investigate a conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status in 2012.
