IRS Victims Testify As New Agency Scandal Emerges

The leaders of six conservative groups are scheduled to tell lawmakers today about their mistreatment at the hands of IRS agents. Several of the groups say their applications for tax-exempt status were delayed while agents asked intrusive questions that the IRS has since acknowledged were inappropriate.

A report by an IRS inspector general said agents singled out conservative groups for additional scrutiny when they applied for tax-exempt status during the 2010 and 2012 elections.

The inspector general is scheduled to release another report Tuesday that says the IRS spent $50 million on conferences for employees between 2010 and 2012.
